We’ve partnered with an international hotel promotion and incentives agency to offer these travel opportunities.
Hotels and resorts are rarely full – in fact, most have a 70% occupancy rate. But of course, they’re always open with fixed costs for wages, electricity, air conditioning, cleaning & so forth.
And they nearly always have rooms available.
So our travel partner helps fill those rooms through promotional incentives like this.
The resorts then hope to make money from guests dining in their restaurants, ordering room service, drinking in their bars, going on hosted tours, enjoying the day spas and having snacks around the pool.
In other words, the Hotels and Resorts are happy to forego margin on their room, based on the expectation of guests spending money elsewhere on the premises.
Most of the hotels in this program allow 4 x people per room (2 adults & 2 children) – with the Phuket & Koh Samui Resorts allowing 2 adults & 1 child under 5 years of age.
In the luxury hotel industry, profits don’t come from “nightly rates” – the resorts & hotels are always hoping to make money from food, beverages, amenities & services.
Hence, they’re happy to practically “give away” their unsold rooms, with the expectation that the guests will spend money on food, drinks & amenities.
Which makes this incentive program a “win” for you, a “win” for your customers & a “win” for the hotels!
And you don’t need to give away discounts to attract more leads or clients.
NO TIMESHARE PRESENTATION OR CATCHES:
Your customers/clients will NOT have to attend any TIMESHARE PRESENTATION or attend any sales pitches.
The resorts & hotels in this program DON’T have any “timeshare clubs”, so breathe easy knowing your customers or clients will enjoy a “hassle-free” vacation!
Do my customers or clients have to take a timeshare presentation in order to take advantage of your “Vacation Accommodation Voucher?”
NO, your customers will never be required to attend any sales or timeshare presentation. These are top quality resorts with no hidden fees or strings attached. Our business partners own and operate several high-volume travel companies and are simply filling otherwise empty rooms. The hotels and resorts aim to gain additional revenue from participating consumers spending money on the property, such as room service, spa, in-house restaurants, bar purchases, an extra day stay, etc.
How are you able to offer these incentives?
Our business partner (www.redeemvacations.com) has contracts with the world’s leading hotel chains and resorts to help them fill their otherwise empty rooms.
They’ve been helping hotels & resorts fill these empty rooms for many years – resulting in additional revenue for hotels from other areas of their property and through future bookings.
Hotels rarely experience full occupancy, yet they remain open, providing rooms and services at fixed costs.
Indeed, most hotels have a 30% vacancy rate each night.
So, when hotels give out their rooms by partnering with our business partner, they might miss out on the room fee, but they already didn’t have that in the first place.
At least now they have the opportunity to gain a customer for their in-house restaurants, room service, an extra day stay, future bookings, etc.
The reason this program works so well is because it’s a win-win for everyone involved.
You win because you gain more business from using our incentives. Your customers win because they receive an awesome incentive gift from you. And the resorts win because they gain additional revenue from other areas of their establishment that they otherwise would not have been able to get – and they also have a new client who may book with them in the future.
Redeem Vacations will also offer additional upgrades and incentives that your client can choose to accept or not.
Do the “Vacation Accommodation Vouchers” have an expiration date?
The printed “Vacation Accommodation Vouchers” do not have an expiration on them.
However, once your customer registers their “Vacation Accommodation Voucher” online and selects their preferred location, they will have 7 days to complete the activation of their vacation.
Please note that the expiration date only pertains to the “actual activation” of the Vacation.
After your customers activate their vacation, they will have 18 months to travel.
To activate, the guest simply needs to pay the daily taxes and fees that correspond to the incentive online. Currently, the activation must be paid in US Dollars, given that numerous properties in this program are overseas, & the Australian Dollar exchange rate fluctuates often.
Why does Redeem Vacations put a 7-day expiration date on the incentives?
The business model works best when the customer activates right away, otherwise many people will forget they even received it.
During this 7-day period, Redeem Vacations will send them up to 3 emails to remind them to activate. Redeem Vacations’ redemption rate is one of the highest in the industry because the 7-day expiration date provides a sense of urgency to activate and use it.
Another important reason for the 7-day expiration date is to protect Redeem Vacations (that has negotiated the special deals with hotels) and your business.
In the event that the contracts change with the participating properties and travel companies, offers can easily be updated or changed.
This way, our “travel industry” partner doesn’t become exposed – nor your company likewise, because of possible discontinued incentives in circulation that may be redeemed at any time in the future.
Do you use my customers’ email or info for any other purpose?
No. We do not market anything in the future to your recipient.
We respect our business partners and have no intention of spamming your clients with email.
Redeem Vacations will send up to 3 email reminders during the first 7 days prior to the incentive expiration – to remind them to activate.
How does my customer redeem the incentives?
When you purchase either the “Instant” or “Loyalty” version, we will mail your “Vacation Accommodation Vouchers”.
These are the Vouchers that you will give to your customers during your promotion.
Your customers will then need to register the voucher online by typing in the unique booking code and selecting their preferred location.
Following this, they will be emailed a link to complete the activation of their vacation, by paying the daily taxes and fees.
Once they have activated their vacation, your customer will have 18 months to choose travel dates.
Your customer will get an email receipt and links to redeemvacations.com to search for dates and be able to choose from participating hotels for desired dates based on availability.
Can the “Vacation Accommodation Vouchers” be used as a reward for my sales staff?
It is a great idea to use them as incentives for employees to meet their goals, but keep in mind that they are not meant for group travel.
These incentives are to be used for promotional use only and are not designed for group travel.
You would not be able to continue to give away these vacations to the same team members as the limitations are only 1 per household per year.
Do my customers get to choose the hotel or resort?
Yes, they will then be able to select from a list of “available” hotels & resorts.
Different hotels & resorts will have different availability depending on the times that your customer has selected.
Keep in mind that these are promotional offers to fill what would otherwise be an empty hotel room.
The properties that participate in these promotional offers release the unoccupied inventory to us just 30 days ahead of time thus it requires the end user to give us a minimum of 30 days advance notice to book dates which will provide your customer with significant savings on their travel.
We also recommend your customers choose weekdays vs weekends and avoid major school holidays for best hotel options and availability.
Do my customers get to choose which destination?
Yes, your customers do get to choose the destinations that they wish to travel to.
They will get to choose from multiple locations & they make the choice when they register their “Vacation Accommodation Voucher” on www.choosemylocation.com
Can my customers book before the required 30-day advance notice on the Accommodation Vouchers?
Customers must book with a minimum of 30 days advance notice prior to preferred or selected check-in dates.
So as long as the guest is booking more than 30 days out, their reservation can be fulfilled, based on availability of course.
The properties that we work with release their unoccupied inventory to us daily, 30 days out, so there is no way around this.
Remember, we are filling otherwise empty rooms for the participating properties and this is the timeframe that they use to project what their occupancy will be.
Based on what their projection is, we’ll determine how many allotments they can provide to us for these promotions.
What are the taxes and fees and what are they based on for the vacation incentives?
The taxes and fees are based on a few factors, examples include but are not limited to local tourism and bed taxes, value-added tax, sales tax based on the full rack rate of the accommodations, maid service fees, zone surcharges, travel agency fees, federal, state, local, or municipal taxes, etc. most average only about US$20 per night.
Are there any other fees or expenses/costs for my customers?
The recipient of the “Vacation Accommodation Voucher” will receive a minimum of 4 nights in a luxury hotel accommodation – with the room rate being “FREE”, which retail is valued at up to US$350 per night.
However the recipient is responsible for all other expenses including but not limited to: airfare, transfers, food & beverages, gratuities, resort fees if applicable, and any other personal or miscellaneous expenses.
Can my customers travel with their children?
The short answer is YES.
The incentives include from 2 to 4 people in the room and vary by destination.
Most hotels accommodate up to 4 persons, so 2 adults & 2 children up to 12 years of age are fine in most properties.
If traveling with extra adults or children, upgrades may be available to accommodate.
The upgrades require the purchase of additional rooms or larger suites. Prices for upgrade options and or additional children etc. depend on room availability and seasonality so prices cannot be quoted until travel dates are selected.
All upgrade options will be online where the end-user can select the option to upgrade or continue to search for other participating properties.
These promotional incentives are designed for couples or small families. Understandably more than 4 persons will be harder to accommodate with these promotions and in some cases not possible.
ONLY one incentive will be honoured per household for friends & relatives traveling together.
Group travel or combining these incentives to travel with friends and family is not allowed & there are extra costs for additional rooms or room nights.
Can my customers get together and book several rooms?
No sorry, these vacation incentives cannot be used for groups of more than 1 room.
The hotels & resorts that are offering this promotion will honour only one package per family, friends, acquaintances, or known groups traveling on the same, similar, and/or adjoining arrival and departure dates.
There are additional costs associated with group travel. They also will not be available to use during conventions or other special events at the resort.
Can my customer cancel the activation and get their money back?
This incentive activation is FINAL & NON-REFUNDABLE.
Your customer will have 18 months to travel and can choose from all available destinations to find travel dates and vacation options.
Once dates are confirmed with the incentive, no changes will be allowed.
Cancellations after dates are confirmed will result in forfeiture of the activation fees. (The inventory used for these rooms is not as flexible as booking at retail rack rates – once confirmed, changes will not be allowed and cancellations or no-shows will result in forfeiture of fees paid)
Are flights included in these incentives?
No, the flights are not included – not when the holiday deal is $97!
Nonetheless, many people choose to use their Frequent Flyer Points for travel, therefore enjoying flights at no cost.
The recipient of this incentive is responsible for all expenses including but not limited to: airfare, transfers, food, gratuities, and any other miscellaneous expenses.
This incentive cannot be combined with any other promotional vacation offer.
Why do my customers have to be a certain age and have a credit card or debit card to use the incentive?
With these promotional offers, the resorts are hoping customers will make up for the loss in room revenue with spending on the property at the restaurants, spa, poolside cocktails, room service, etc. For this reason and others, they are requiring that at least 1 person in the party be over the age of 21 for all the resorts – and hold a passport to travel if overseas.
They must also have a Major Credit or a Bank Debit Card with a Visa or Mastercard logo plus a valid government-issued ID to check-in. (In other words, they must not be cash customers with no recourse for damage to rooms, etc.)
Can my customer choose from all of the locations?
Your customers can choose from any of the locations as long as they reside at least 100 miles or 160 kilometres away from the participating resort.
If I’m running the loyalty version of the promotion, how do I get the database?
We’ll provide you with the database on a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly basis – whatever suits use you best.
Understandably, we’ll provide the database digitally.
What happens when I purchase the Vacation Promotional Program online?
As soon as you receive your order online, we’ll email to you acknowledgement of your payment together with details of the delivery of your:
A) Vacation Accommodation Vouchers
B) Your Vacation Certificates if you’ve chosen to run the “loyalty version” of the promotion.
In this “Welcome Email”, we’ll also allow you to access our Advertising Resources such as Facebook Ad ideas, & webpage panels etc.
And we’ll remind you of the opportunity to order Display Material through our signage company supplier, should you be a bricks n’ mortar business.
It’s in our best interest to help you make the promotion as successful as possible, so rest assured we’ll be proactive!
How many Vacations can my clients take?
Your clients are only allowed to redeem 1 vacation for every 12 months (per household). This is calculated from the time of travel not the time they activated their vacation.
Each destination can only be redeemed once per household.
