Karisma Hotels & Resorts is upping its commission to 21 percent and adding a new loyalty travel club program. There’s also additional wedding- and romance-related offerings and tools exclusive to Gourmet Inclusive Vacation Consultants (GIVCs).
The new loyalty travel club program rewards GIVCs for memberships purchased by their clients: Agents earn a free 2- or 3-night stay at any Karisma property in Mexico, Jamaica, or the Dominican Republic in any room category, with no blackout dates, when their clients purchase a membership with Exotic Travelers or Prestige Travelers by Karisma. But that’s not all, GIVCs also earn one free night every time their original client travels back to any Karisma property over the next 10 years.
Karisma also debuted a co-branded Romance Website, a co-branded Memorable Moments Wedding Website, and a Free Private Events Promotion. These co-branded websites are powered by Karisma Hotels & Resorts, but include each agency and the agent’s personal logo and contact information on every page. Partners will also have access to personal booking engines on their websites, a new way to generate and collect leads, and e-marketing e-blasts. GIVCs are also rewarded for signing up with exclusive booking bonuses of up to $375. Finally, Karisma has also brought back its Free Private Events Promotion offering GIVCs up to two free 2-hour cocktail parties and one free 3-course dinner for 30 rooms booked or more. This Free Private Events Promotion is valid for bookings made by March 31 for travel June 1-Dec. 22, 2016 and June 1-Dec. 22, 2017.
