Participating hoteliers include brands such as Barcelo Hotels & Resorts.

Apple Leisure Group Vacations (ALGV) is launching Funjet Vacations' Get Paid to Upgrade automatic bonus commission program companywide. 

The move means that Apple Vacations, Travel Impressions, Southwest Vacations, Funjet Vacations and United Vacations are now offering 2 percent additional commission on the entirety of the hotel portion of the applicable package to participating properties—not just the difference between the pricing of the lead-in and upgrade categories. For flexible group bookings, bonus earnings may average $500 per reservation, ALGV said; since its inception with Funjet Vacations, over $1 million in extra commission was awarded for that brand alone. For FIT packages, the average compensation is $100 more per booking.

Bookable only through ALGV brands' websites and the VAX VacationAccess platform, the technology has already been built to enable automatic distribution of higher commissions for eligible properties. Through this engine, advisors can identify eligible properties via clear notation in search results. There is also a step-by-step guide (ALGVACATIONS.COM\GetPaidToUpgrade) on how to identify these bonus commission opportunities and on-demand access to the full list of properties.
