Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA — The Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) has launched its ‘Pure Grenada Specialist & Loyalty Program’ designed to incentivize over 20,000 registered travel agents to become an extension of the destination’s marketing and sales team.
The platform promotes the products of Grenada, Carriacaou and Petite Martinique in areas like soft adventure, culinary, culture, honeymoons and destination weddings, luxury and specialized offerings.
Agents are encouraged to record their bookings on the program’s website to become eligible for rewards. From July 1 a monthly cash prize of $200 will be awarded to the travel agent with the most bookings. The deadline for each month’s reward is the last day of that given month.
