Karisma Hotels & Resorts has announced that IDx, The Power of Travel, has been selected as the Karisma Preferred Partner for the month of March.
The Karisma Preferred Partner program goal is to highlight a different tour operator from the U.S. or Canada each month, offering a variety of special activities to drive excitement and motivation while providing training on Karisma Hotels & Resorts and the Gourmet Inclusive Experience, Karisma said in a release.
Tour operators that are chosen to participate in the Karisma Preferred Partner program enjoy a range of benefits, including training support, sales incentives and assistance, weekly contests, and web, social media, and press exposure. The training, which takes place prior to the start of the month, focuses on reservations, groups and sales with the intention of providing a better understanding of Karisma Hotels & Resorts’ fundamental differentiators, including the signature Gourmet Inclusive Experience. Incentives can include complimentary stays and gift cards to popular retail stores with the top seller earning a grand prize. Each Friday of the month, tour operators host a Balloon Contest, where the staff pops balloons for a chance to win various prizes.
Karisma Hotels & Resorts also offers its Preferred Partners exposure during their designated month, including weekly email blasts on behalf of the tour operator to Karisma’s agent database promoting current specials, a spotlight on Karisma’s travel agent portal and dedicated social media and press outreach. To generate sales for the Preferred Partner and drive exposure internally, Karisma Hotels & Resorts creates exclusive promotions and value adds for the designated tour operator.
