Book groups now on HAL for bonus GAP points. // © 2014 Holland America
Travel agents participating in Holland America Line’s Group Amenities Program (GAP) can earn bonus GAP points by making group bookings on select summer and fall itineraries by April 30. Each group booking earns two bonus points, which travel agents can “spend” on more incentives for their booked clients, including a cocktail party, dinner at an alternative restaurant or shipboard credit.
The extra points can be earned on select summer and fall Alaska, Alaska Land+Sea Journeys, Canada and New England, Caribbean, Europe, Panama Canal, South America and Tahiti itineraries.
“We’ve been listening to travel agent feedback and added these extra points to provide additional incentives for group bookings and help agents motivate their clients to bring a group onboard,” said Eva Jenner, Holland America Line’s vice president of North America field, charter and incentive sales. “Travel agents can use their points on an exciting array of amenities, which makes every extra point valuable.”
Other available 2014 GAP menu amenities that travel consultants can purchase with GAP points include group leader upgrades, beverage cards, a bottle of Bon Voyage sparkling wine in room, a Canaletto dinner, an Internet package, deluxe canapes, Wine Navigator Packages and a one-hour Fiesta Party with margaritas, mojitos and fiesta food.
On the land portion of Holland America Line’s Land+Sea Journeys in Alaska, GAP amenities options include lunch onboard the McKinley Explorer Railcar and dinner at the Westmark Fairbanks. GAP points are based on a per-person value and selections must be made 90 days prior to the cruise departure.
