Funjet Vacations reports it recently hosted one of their annual rewards trips for ‘Silver’ level members of its 500 Club, a program recognizing the company’s top travel agencies. The trip took place at the Barceló Los Cabos Palace Deluxe October 5 - 9 and was attended by over 70 of Funjet Vacations’ top-producing travel agents.
With ‘Funjet to Success’ as the general theme, the trip provided travel agents with a look at the newest ways to position themselves for success with Funjet in the upcoming year and to experience Los Cabos through various tours and excursions, Funjet says.
During the trip’s main presentation, Funjet Vacations’ President Mike Going outlined the opportunities available to travel agents amidst current marketplace challenges. He encouraged the audience that they need to change the way they do business and choose Funjet Vacations, emphasizing the company’s goal in continuously striving to support and invest in travel agents.
Going explained that this goal is accomplished by providing the necessary resources for travel agents and explained the details of the newest opportunities for profitability.
The presentation outlined ways to make success simple, including Funjet Vacations’ 2 percent Bonus Commission program. With the program, travel agents can earn 2 percent bonus commission on upgraded room categories at participating hotels.
Supporting this new program is yet another business-changing Funjet Vacations feature, the Agent Value ID. This color-coded indicator helps travel agents easily find bonus earning opportunities and other agent values on Funjet Vacations bookings in VAX VacationAccess.
Following the presentation, Funjet Vacations hosted a focus group on three key topics – marketing, sales support, and engagement – to gather feedback and further enhance business relationships. This provided a platform for travel agents to work with Funjet Vacations and discuss enhancements to make every experience the best, Funjet reports.
“These trips provide an incredible opportunity to engage with our agents as well as a way to show our support. Our relationships and the feedback we gain from talking to our travel agents is invaluable and often the driver of our next initiative,” says Darya Camacci, Funjet Vacations vice president of sales and marketing.
