Trafalgar and Costsaver have announced the exciting destinations of two upcoming rewards trips: Acclaim 2020 and Crew 2020. And great news, there’s still time for agents to secure their spot.
Trafalgar Acclaim 2020: JoinTrafalgar in Ireland
WHAT IS ACCLAIM?
Acclaim is the exclusive annual recognition trip for Trafalgar’s valued agent partners. Participation is performance-based and open to everyone and every type of agency or network, from home-based consultants to online agents.
This year’s Acclaim trip will focus on experiencing JoinTrafalgar initiatives in the magical Emerald Isle on an itinerary that’s being hyped as Trafalgar’s most “rewarding” rewards trip yet. In addition to VIP treatment, agents will enjoy Ireland’s wild landscapes and warm-hearted hospitality while gaining a deeper understanding of how JoinTrafalgar helps make travel a force for good. “Meeting the people and families whose lives are changed through every single booking, seeing the restoration support for heritage sites, places of historical significance and small businesses that are positively impacted through our visits is truly humbling,” said Trafalgar’s Global CEO Gavin Tollman. “We know our agent partners will go home with plenty of stories to tell.”
WHAT IS JOINTRAFALGAR?
Last year marked 10 years of JoinTrafalgar which launched with the mission to use the positive power of travel to make a difference. By supporting artisans, farmers and families, investing in micro-enterprises, preserving cultures and traditions while helping reduce the travel footprint, Trafalgar is focused on the goal of making travel matter. On Acclaim 2020, agents will have the opportunity to meet locals like Oonagh, owner of eco-tourism business Wild Kitchen in County Clare and learn to forage along the Wild Atlantic Way for local delicacies that can be transformed into a hearty Irish feast.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Make as many Trafalgar bookings as possible during the booking window: 4/1/2019 – 3/31/2020. For more information, including trip updates and how to qualify, agents should visit Trafalgar.com/en-ca/TT-Acclaim or speak to your local sales manager.
Costsaver Crew 2020: Costa Rica
WHAT IS CREW?
Last year witnessed the inaugural, all expenses paid Costsaver Top Achievers recognition trip which rewarded agents with a memorable visit to Asia. This year, the program has been re-named Crew 2020 and with pura vida Costa Rica as the destination, hard-working agents will enjoy a restful, well-earned break.
On Crew 2020, agents look forward to the experiences that make Costa Rica so special while getting better acquainted with what the Costsaver brand stands for. Specifically, experiencing its “Essentials by Us, Tailored by You” approach to travel – in the exact same way clients do. True to the Costsaver model, Crew 2020 will provide agents the essentials: quality three- and four-star accommodation, comfortable transportation, the expertise of a Travel Director and quintessential Costa Rica highlights (like looking for monkeys, sloths and iguanas with a Local Specialist), alongside pick-and-choose inclusions. Excursions might include soaking in a hot spring, visiting a palm plantation, white water rafting or ziplining. Travel agents can expect to see Costsaver continue to expand into new destinations – growth that Tollman attributed to the positive efforts of agent partners.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
Make as many Costsaver bookings as you can during the booking window: 4/1/2019 – 3/31/2020. For more information, visit CostsaverTour.com/en-ca/Crew or speak to your local sales manager.
