Happy Vacations' new honeymoon registry service meets the needs of a growing segment of the population—couples who seek non-traditional wedding gifts and the travel agents seeking innovative tools to help sell travel and honeymoon packages.
According to the company, Happy Vacations is the first travel wholesaler to offer a honeymoon registry, providing a unique and powerful sales tool for travel agents who book honeymoon packages. "We have received an overwhelming positive response from travel agents to our honeymoon registry program," said Nancy Williams, managing director of Happy Vacations' Honeymoon Registry Division. "Travel agents use the honeymoon registry as a sales tool and prefer the option of keeping both the travel package and the honeymoon registry with Happy Vacations."
The Happy Honeymoon Registry Specialist Program was created for travel agents to gain a better understanding of how the registry program works, from both a sales and marketing perspective as well as how it works from the bride and groom's perspective. Agents become "registry specialists" by taking part in a webinar, completing a self-study guide with an exam and by creating their own "practice" honeymoon registry.
By becoming Happy Honeymoon Registry Specialists, agents earn a bonus commission of 1 percent on all Happy Vacations packages that also use the Happy Honeymoon Registry. "Rather than tying their bonus commission to the gift registry sales, we wanted to reward our agents by guaranteeing a set percentage tied to the Happy Vacations package they booked for their honeymooners and not the success of their client's registry itself," Williams adds.
As a Happy Honeymoon Registry Specialist, a travel agent will now be able to offer their expertise to wedding couples booking their honeymoon travel as well as the Happy Honeymoon Registry to fund their honeymoon experiences.
