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.
MIAMI — Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts is offering the five Canada-based travel agents who sell the most nights to any of its Samana and Rio San Juan properties an all-expenses paid trip to the D.R.
Agents must be registered with the brand’s travel partner loyalty program Bahia Principe Rewards to be eligible. All bookings to the brand’s four properties in Samana – Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado, Luxury Bahia Principe Samana, Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa and Grand Bahia Principe El Portillo – as well as Grand Bahia Principe San Juan in Rio San Juan, will be eligible.
The five agents who register the most room nights will win a seven-night complimentary stay, airfare and transfers included.
Bahia Principe Rewards offers partners the information and tools necessary to best provide their clients with exceptionally planned vacations and the opportunity to experience happiness, says the company.
In addition to this current promotion agents can also earn points year-round by completing online courses and booking hotel stays which can be redeemed for perks including complimentary stays, excursion discounts, spa treatments and more.
Here’s a look at Bahia Principe’s offerings in the D.R.:
The five prizes will be awarded to agents who sell the most room nights in December in the following order: Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado (top seller), Luxury Bahia Principe Samana (2nd place), Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa (3rd), Grand Bahia Principe El Portillo (4th) and Grand Bahia Principe San Juan (5th).
Agents must be based in Canada and sell a minimum of 20 nights to be eligible.
To participate, all bookings must be made from now through Dec. 31, 2018, and submitted to Bahia Principe Rewards before Jan. 5, 2019.
The travel window is from now through Oct. 31, 2019.
Agents can enter bookings here and see their current ranking position and the time left to the end of the ranking at any time by accessing the promotions section of the Bahia Principe Rewards platform.
The program will notify winners once all room nights registered by all participants have been reviewed after Jan. 5, 2019. For questions, agents are asked to visit the platform’s Contact Us section.
