Apple Leisure Group Vacations (ALGV) has launched a new Top Accounts Program designed to reward top-performing travel advisors. The company said that the new program simplifies and standardizes the goals and benefits for its three brand recognition clubs: the Apple Vacations Preferred Partners, Funjet Vacations 500 Club and Travel Impressions Best of the Best programs.

Benefits of the new Top Accounts Program will include exclusive promo codes to help close sales, fast-tracked solutions and expedited handling of requests, and exclusive recognition trips, such as a special all-brand Elite Level FAM with ALGV executives.

Additionally, revenue from sales with United Vacations, Blue Sky Tours and Southwest Vacations will now be eligible for use towards up to 30 percent of an agency’s total to qualify for Preferred Partners, 500 Club or Best of the Best status beginning in 2021. A minimum of 70 percent of the goal must be reached with Apple Vacations, Funjet Vacations, or Travel Impressions in order to be eligible for each brand’s program, ALGV said.

“These changes introduce new benefits and incremental rewards for our top-performing travel advisor partners while making it easier to qualify for our various brand recognition programs,” said Jim Tedesco, vice president of sales, Apple Leisure Group Vacations, in a written statement. “Travel advisors can now make the best choices for their clients by taking advantage of incentives with Blue Sky Tours or one of our airline brands without impacting their ability to reach their goal for Preferred Partners, 500 Club or Best of the Best.”

A newly created United Vacations preferred partner program will offer access to air vouchers, United Club Passes, and enhanced club-member customer service features.

The Top Accounts Program also introduces an elite status with ALGV, a new level joining together the most powerful producers partnering with Apple Vacations, Travel Impressions, Funjet Vacations, United Vacations, Blue Sky Tours, and Southwest Vacations, the company said. 

Agencies must qualify for each of these programs annually based on their performance throughout the previous calendar year.
