Coinciding with yesterday’s Travel Advisor Day, Apple Leisure Group kicked off a monthlong Appreciation Celebration promotion featuring new reward incentives such as chances to win free getaways and free flights, plus FAM trip opportunities.
A special VIP QT incentive also provides an opportunity to win a 2-hour lunch for an entire agency to have one-on-one time with brand presidents for Travel Impressions, Apple Vacations, Funjet Vacations or Blue Sky Tours, or the managing director for Southwest Vacations or United Vacations.
In addition, there are also several brand-specific reward opportunities. For example, one million LoyalTI First points are up for grabs through Travel Impressions’ Million in May incentive. Half of the points will go to three LoyalTI First-registered agents who make the most FIT/escorted or customized tour bookings to any Travel Impressions destination now through May 29, 2019. The remaining 500,000 LoyalTI First points will be awarded weekly through random drawings, as well as weekly incentives rewarding retailers for booking exotic escorted tours, Exclusive Nonstop Vacation Flights, as well as regions including the Caribbean, Mexico, Europe, Hawaii and other U.S. destinations. Winners will be announced on Travel Impressions’ Facebook page each Friday, beginning May 10.
Funjet will also offer more opportunities to maximize Agent Bonus Cash earned on Exclusive Nonstop Vacation Flight bookings. Travel advisors will receive $10 Agent Bonus Cash for every Exclusive Nonstop Vacation Flight booked with Funjet Vacations throughout May 2019. This can be combined with an incentive of up to $50 for booking select resort partners. Blue Sky Tours will give away stays in Hawaii for those who attend any of its three informational webinars during the Appreciation Celebration, while also offering $25 Agent Bonus Cash for booking of four nights or longer. In total, agents can earn up to $80 in Agent Bonus Cash on bookings to Hawaii or the South Pacific.
United Vacations and Southwest Vacations are also offering additional Agent Bonus Cash throughout the Appreciation Celebration promotion. Through United Vacations, retailers can earn up to $50 Agent Bonus Cash at select resorts, as well as 16 percent hotel commission when booking Reflect Resorts and Spas, plus air vouchers when booking multiple stays at thoseproperties. In addition, advisors can win one of five vacation experiences being given away by United Vacations this month. Meanwhile, Southwest Vacations is kicking off its 30th anniversary celebration with a $30 Agent Bonus Cash incentive. The promotion applies to air-inclusive vacation packages to Mexico, the Caribbean and Hawaii featuring trip protection.
Finally, Apple Vacations is giving away ten 3-night trips for two and two roundtrip Exclusive Nonstop Vacation Flight seats. Apple Vacations is also rewarding agents with up to 20,000 Royalties Points for ‘saving the day’ for their clients. Advisors can head to the Apple Vacations Facebook page for a profile picture overlay that will make them look like a super hero.
