Karisma Hotels & Resorts is offering many new incentives for travel agent partners in 2016. Gourmet Inclusive Vacation Consultants who book clients at any Karisma Hotels & Resorts property in Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe will receive a commission increase of 21 percent. The hotel collection has also unveiled a new loyalty travel club program that will give agents a free two- or three-night stay in any room category at a Karisma property in Mexico, Jamaica or the Dominican Republic, with no blackout dates, when clients purchase either an Exotic Travelers or Prestige Travelers membership. As an added incentive, agents will earn one free night each time the original client travels back to a Karisma property at any time in the next 10 years.
Additionally, agents who book destination weddings, honeymoons or anniversaries will have their agency’s personal logo and contact information located on each page of Karisma’s new Cobranded Romance Website and Cobranded Memorable Moments Wedding website. There is also an option to have personal booking engines on their websites and e-marketing on their behalf. Upon sign up, agents will earn a booking bonus of up to $375.
For bookings of 30 rooms or more, agents will win two free two-hour cocktail parties and one free three-course dinner. This Free Private Events Promotion is valid for bookings made by March 31, 2016, for travel between June 1 to Dec. 22, 2016, and June 1 to Dec. 22, 2017.
