The show is to be featured on Network Ten from August, THE 48 HOUR DESTINATION will take viewers to the hottest locations in the world, backed by the expert advice of the people of the leading global travel retailer.

General Manager of Customer Experience for Flight Centre Travel Group, Darren Wright, said the program would consist of 13, half-hour episodes highlighting the knowledge and passion for travel through the eyes of the company’s consultants.
