Agents earn double STAR points with Sunwing & more rewards with Signature

TORONTO — No, you’re not seeing double. For a limited time, Sunwing Vacations is offering travel agents the chance to earn double STAR points on flights and packages from Saint John, New Brunswick to Orlando, Florida.

This promotion is valid on all new bookings made between March 12-25 for departures from March 14-May 9, 2016.

The tour operator offers a number of vacation packages in Orlando that are ideal for families. Along with classic hotel accommodation, families can book three- to five-bedroom detached homes featuring their own private pool, or two- to three-bedroom private villas set in larger resort complexes.

As an added bonus for families, each vacation package also comes with a mid-size car rental; bookings of accommodation units of two bedrooms or more are automatically upgraded to a seven-seater minivan. Plus, there’s a host of Kids Fly & Stay Free deals as well as savings on key attractions like Boggy Creek Airboat rides, Legoland Florida Resort, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Sea World Parks, Universal Orlando and Walt Disney World.

Signature Vacations, meanwhile, is also offering agents the chance to earn rewards in a more lucrative way. As of March 15, travel agents can add their STAR number and RIU Partner Club number to a RIU booking in one simple step. The STAR profile page at sunwingagents.ca has been enhanced so agents can save their RIU Partner Club (RPC) membership number to their personal profile. Once entered, their RPC number will be automatically added and reported to RIU Hotels & Resorts each time they confirm a RIU vacation, therefore allowing them to earn both STAR and RPC points by entering just one number.

Offered exclusively by Signature Vacations, RIU Hotels & Resorts properties are situated on beachfronts in the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America. Opening this June is the newly built Riu Republica in Punta Cana, a 24-hour all-inclusive, 18-plus adults-only resort situated in tropical gardens. Upon opening, guests will find two large infinity pools with sun terraces, complimentary Wi-Fi throughout, concierge service, fitness centre with Jacuzzi and steam bath, and a Renova Spa, complete with a beauty parlour and massage service.

Bookings made by March 31 for departures from June 1-Aug. 31 are eligible for 3X STAR points, plus 3X RPC points.

Agents can earn STAR points on all new bookings they make with Signature Vacations and Sunwing Vacations. For more information on the STAR points promotion and how to enter agent RPC numbers, go to sunwingagents.ca.
