Contests and Incentives

May 7, 2007 By: David Eisen Travel Agent

Agents Win More Than Commissions When Booking Las Vegas

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) is
teaming up with travel wholesalers this summer in a program that could be
lucrative for travel agents. Dubbed "The Las Vegas Summer Getaway
Giveaway," the contest gives agents the chance to win $30,000 in prizes,
such as Bose wave radios and HD-plasma TVs. Through May 31, travel agents who
sell air or land packages to the Las
area for travel during July and August will
qualify. The LVCVA has already partnered with such wholesalers as American Airlines
Vacations, US Airway Vacations and GoGo Worldwide Vacations. Visit for more
information. Travel agents can tell their clients to sign up for Hyatt's
"Ultimate Adventure Challenge" promotion

Hyatt Plugs Into Reality TV

Hyatt Resorts is auditioning families for reality TV. The
hotel operator is the first in the industry to enter the reality craze with the
launch of its "Ultimate Adventure Challenge." Five families will be
selected to have their lives taped at three participating Hyatt properties as
they partake in outdoor activities, the surrounding culture and dining
experiences. Their sagas will then be posted as "webisodes" so that
the public can watch and experience what a true Hyatt vacation experience is like.
Episodes will be judged, and the highest-rated family will win 50 free nights
at any Hyatt property worldwide.

Travel agents can tell clients to visit
for further information and to sign up. Interested families must film and
submit a 90-second video demonstrating their love for adventure and
exploration. All entries must be sent by May 31.

Island Destinations' New Agent Incentive

Island Destinations has expanded its Referral Rewards
Program for preferred travel agents. Now, any new agent booking with Island
Destinations for the first time will receive a $100 cash bonus for choosing to
book with the luxury tour operator. If the new agent was referred by an
existing client, the current client will also receive the $100 cash reward. The
cash reward will be issued once the client's travel is completed; a three-night
minimum is required. The offer is valid now through August 31, 2007, and has no
restrictions on the amount of rewards an agent can redeem.

Referrals should call 800-942-5899 with full contact
information to process both Referral Rewards. Visit
