Vacation.com, an Amadeus subsidiary, has announced the addition of Nexion, a Sabre Travel Network unit, to its membership. Vacation.com is welcoming the host agency’s 2,100 independent travel agents, who will have access to Vacation.com’s Engagement program and other benefits.
An influential host agency since 1995, Nexion provides preferred supplier content, ticketing, operations, fulfillment support and marketing services for their agent members. Through their newly-cemented Vacation.com membership, Nexion members will receive enhanced commissions from a greater range of suppliers and access to other exclusive benefits.
“This is a smart partnership,” said Jared Braunstein, Vacation.com’s vice president of sales. “Each will make the other stronger through complementary marketing programs, Preferred Supplier relationships, training and education. We are proud to have Nexion onboard.”
All Nexion agent members will have access to Vacation.com’s Engagement marketing program, which consists of offers from Preferred Suppliers exclusively negotiated for Vacation.com members. Benefits of Engagement include professionally-designed direct mail promotions that are sent to pre-selected clients with the member’s agency as the sole call to action.
“Despite a pressured economy, Nexion agents continue to thrive, and we're looking forward to including Vacation.com's Engagement marketing benefits to the rich services already provided to Nexion members,” said Jackie Friedman, Nexion’s general manager. “We did our homework and were greatly impressed by Vacation.com’s Preferred Supplier offers and direct mail program. Our agents can capitalize on that expertise to help them accelerate their success.”
Vacation.com members can log into AgentNet to access the Engagement program and other member benefits. All other agencies should visit www.JoinVacation.com for more information. Vacation.com has 5,100 agency members.
