Rail Europe has partnered with Switzerland Tourism and the Swiss Travel System to help travel advisors increase their knowledge and sales of Swiss travel products, while also offering the chance to win a Switzerland FAM and other prizes.
Starting today, advisors can register in the program, which will invite them to take monthly quizzes made up of 20 questions testing their knowledge on Swiss products, Rail Europe, and Bucherer watches. The program will run May 1 through July 31, 2019 with prizes awarded to the top scorers each month. The top advisor with a quiz score of at least 80 percent will win the first place prize of one Bucherer watch, while the second place winner will receive a fondue set with a fondue cookbook, and third place will win a bamboo cheese board.
Advisors who want to be considered for the Switzerland FAM must take all three monthly quizzes, and during every month of the program must submit their ticket sales of participating Swiss Travel System products for validation. These include the Swiss Travel Pass/Swiss Travel Pass Flex, Swiss Travel pass e-ticket, Swiss Point-to-Point tickets and Swiss Mountaintop excursions. Six advisors from the U.S. and six from Canada will win the grand prize of a 6-day, all-expenses paid trip to Switzerland in early December 2019. Winners are chosen based on a combination of most quiz points and product sales during the promotion period. Points are accrued in various ways, including:
- Points scored on monthly quizzes will earn points
- Sales of Swiss products earn points, pending validation
- Mountaintop excursion sales earn bonus points
- Agents who register now through April 30 earn bonus points
