Apple, Starwood Provide Online-Booking Incentive

Apple Vacations is teaming with Starwood to encourage travel agents to use Apple's online Hawaii booking engine, [www.myappleonline.com], by providing them with a chance to win one of five multi-island Hawaii vacations. Travel agents earn a contest entry each time they use the engine to make a new Hawaii booking through June 30. They earn two entries per booking when Starwood is booked. In addition, agents who book clients' travel by June 3 for departure through December 15 earn a bonus commission of 2 percent, as well as Double Royalties Points. Prize trips are for two and provide a 10-night stay spread across Starwood resorts on three islands. They also include roundtrip air on United, intertisland air, transfers and use of a Hertz convertible. The grand prize winner receives one of these trips and a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed.
