Club Med enriches its rewards program for travel agents

MONTREAL — Club Med’s rewards program includes up to 15% commission on all-inclusive stays at all Club Med properties worldwide in addition to commissions on flights and additional services booked before departure.

The program contains also several other benefits to the travel agents.

Travel agents always have the possibility to educate themselves about the Club Med product. In addition to training materials and complete resort sheets available on the dedicated website clubmedagents.ca, Business Development Managers regularly organize training sessions in travel agencies. But also and above all, they accompany several familiarization trips, organized each year. And in 2015, Club Med plans to increase significantly the numbers of FAMs.

Throughout the year, Club Med organizes its brochure launch in September or October and schedules other VIP events that travel professionals might be attending to discover the latest product enhancements and be up-to-date regarding Club Med’s news.

In addition, the Free Nights Program rewards each sale made by the agency. In brief, for every amount of $6,000 sold in stay and services for clients who travelled during the Nov. 1, 2013 to Oct. 31, 2014 reference period, the agency earns one free night. Thus, for a free one-week stay, the travel agency must have sold $42,000 of Club Med stays and services during the previous fiscal year.

When arriving at the resort, travel partners will enjoy a VIP welcome and dedicated privileges, reductions on additional services, free WiFi and late check-out.

The dedicated website clubmedagents.ca gives travel agents access to information in order to promote any destination: customizable e-mail, resort sheet, pictures, product presentation.

Club Med will soon launch the Club Med challenges whereby travel agents will get a chance to win free nights or other rewards.

“Travel agencies are key business partners for Club Med. In 2015, we are enriching our rewards program, already very complete, and it is important for the sales team to make sure all the benefits are known. But also, and above all, that the travel partners live the unique Club Med experience.” said Jacinda Lowry, National Sales Director.

There are six levels of the Travel Agencies Rewards Program, determined by the gross sales (BV) with Club Med (for clients who travelled during the Nov. 1 and Oct. 31 reference period of last year) over a 12-month period. Each category benefits from a specific commission rate and rewards. For instance, agencies that have sold more than $100,000 between Nov. 1, 2013 and Oct. 31, 2014 will earn 15% commission as well as additional advantages.

Club Med, pioneer of the all-inclusive vacation, offers a selection of more than 65 all-inclusive resorts worldwide.
