Pleasant Holidays has launched Think Big, a new travel agent incentive for group bookings. In addition to commission, agents earn a $500 bonus for bookings of 200 room nights or more, a $225 bonus for bookings of 100 room nights or a $100 Bonus for bookings of 50 room nights. Maximum bonus payable is $500 per agent for the program. Qualified group bookings must be confirmed between July 1 and Dec. 31, 2010, with travel completed by December 31, 2011.
“Destination weddings represent one of the fastest growing segments in group travel today,” says Pleasant Holidays president Jack Richards. “The possibilities for agents to confirm group bookings are really limitless. Traditional corporate and association meetings or incentives, educational groups, professional and religious affiliations, sports fans and teams, family reunions — each of these groups represents the potential for the agent to develop a large and loyal repeat customer base and earn additional income with Pleasant Holidays.”
The Think Big agent incentive applies to contracted groups with a minimum of ten rooms or more. To participate in the program, agents must complete and submit the form available online in the Agent Resource Center or call the group department at 800-542-9244. Incentives are paid to the travel agent once travel is completed.
Travel agents wanting to learn more about booking groups can take the pre-recorded TRACK webinar in the Agent Resource Center. Called Groups, Destination Weddings and Family Vacations, the 45-minute course can be taken at any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
