Collette Vacations is resuming its popular 5 for $500 agent incentive program. Through April 30, individual agents can earn $500 for making either five bookings or booking 10 passengers for travel in 2011 on all Collette products, including its new small-group travel brand, Explorations, and Smithsonian Journeys Travel Adventures. The incentive applies to new retail bookings only and not to group bookings.
The tour operator has also enlisted mystery shoppers who will contact agencies nationwide to inquire about escorted tours. Contacted agents who offer any Collette product as a potential tour choice will also receive a $100 gift card from Collette.www.collettevacations.com
