HONOLULU — Aston Hotels & Resorts has enhanced its STARs Online program, making it easier for travel agents to earn rewards and access expert-designed resources to help them visit, learn about and sell Aston properties.
STARs Online is a free web-based program that provides travel agents in the U.S. and Canada unlimited access to submit their Aston bookings, track STARs points and cash back bonuses, and redeem rewards efficiently and conveniently. Agents can earn free Aston stays and gift cards at a variety of national merchants such as Target, Macy’s and Amazon.com.
Aston recently completed extensive improvements throughout the site to streamline incentive features and functionality, making it easier to earn rewards. For every 10 nights booked, agents can earn points good for a free one-night stay at an Aston property. Or, log more bookings and earn even greater rewards.
STARs Online also features an expanded selection of popular sales and marketing tools, such as customizable e-mail templates, property brochures, maps and fact sheets, plus access to a digital image library.
To celebrate the launch of the enhanced STARs Online program and Aston’s 65th anniversary, travel agents can earn big with ‘65 Days of $65’ cash back bonuses. This special limited-time offer runs through Nov. 6, 2013, for travel from Sept. 3-Dec.21, 2013, and awards travel agents cash bonuses of $65 for bookings of five consecutive nights or more at a single Aston Hotels & Resorts property in Hawaii, Lake Tahoe, Lake Las Vegas or Orlando.
“Our groundbreaking STARs Online program is now even more rewarding for travel agents who learn and sell Aston Hotels & Resorts properties,” said Shari Chang, senior vice president of sales, marketing and revenue management at Aston Hotels & Resorts. “Travel agents are our business, so we have designed this program to offer them exclusive benefits – starting with one booking entry.”
STARs Online is just the latest example of Aston Hotels & Resorts’ commitment to make it easier for travel agents to book and stay at Aston’s 28 properties. Aston also offers world-class sales support; discounts and commissions; familiarization tours; and ‘eduVacations’ where travel agents can learn, stay and play at Aston properties.
