Questions and answers
How can we do this?
We are partnering with a travel agency who is contracted with the world leading hotel chains, cruise lines and resorts to help them fill their otherwise empty rooms. We help fill empty rooms which the hotels, resorts and cruise lines turn into additional revenue from other areas of their property and future bookings. Hotels rarely experience full occupancy, yet they remain open, providing rooms and services at fixed costs. So when hotels give out their rooms by partnering with marketing companies like us, they might miss out on the room fee, but they already didn't have that in the first place, at least now they have the opportunity to gain a customer for their in-house restaurants, room service, their casinos, an extra day stay, future bookings, etc. The magic of why our program works so well is the fact that its a win win for everyone involved. You win because you gain more business from using our incentives. Your customers win because they received an awesome incentive gift from you. The hotels, resorts and cruise lines win because they gain additional revenue from other areas of their establishment that they otherwise would not have been able to get and they also have a new client that may book with them in the future.
Can I cover fees and taxes for my sponsors/advertisers
All of our certificates are available in a "Premium Certificate" version that allows you to prepay the one time redemption fee so your customers won't have to pay anything up front to redeem their certificate. As a member you will already have access to the premium certificates. When it comes to prepaying the taxes and fees for the travel, we do not recommend you do this before your customers actually complete the travel. The reason being is because they may not end up traveling after all. Instead, offer to rebate or reimburse them after they complete their vacation. Only after your customers pay for the taxes and fees and finish the travel should you reimburse them or rebate the fees they paid. This will save you money in the event your customers do not end up traveling for whatever reason (life happens and people that you gave the certificate to appreciate the gesture, but sometimes they cannot find the time to travel).
