ALG Vacations, parent company of Apple Vacations, Travel Impressions, Funjet Vacations, Southwest Vacations and United Vacations, has consolidated the individual brand programs into one collection: ALG Vacations Exclusive Perks. 

Previously separate programs under Apple Vacations, Travel Impressions, Funjet Vacations, United Vacations, and Southwest Vacations (such as Exceptional Values, Partner Privileges, Insider Circle Perks, and Hotel Exclusive Benefits), Exclusive Perks now combines ALGV brands’ 2020 exclusive offers. Agents can offer their customers the same complimentary ALGV-only added values regardless of what brand they choose to book.

Offers vary depending on hotel brand, specific property, and in some cases even room category. However, the caveats for inclusion are that:

  • The benefit is not available through other operators and travel providers, including hotel-direct and OTAs not within the ALGV family
  • According to ALGV, they are above and beyond the typical offers that have become ubiquitous in the industry

Exclusive Perks may include:

  • Private roundtrip airport transfers for multiple passengers
  • Special complimentary excursions, such as a sunset sail or cenotes tour
  • Exclusive tasting sessions and private cocktail parties by invitation for ALGV guests only
  • Preferred check-in and check-out in reserved areas for even greater social distancing
  • Private airport lounge access, complete with complimentary snacks and beverages
  • Special programs, such as a Kids Concierge package that includes in-room amenities and events, cooking classes, face painting, themed kits, and more
  • High floor room assignment for best views and property locations
  • Spa credits
  • Poolside VIP amenities, such as cabana and daybed rentals

Participating hotel brands include:

  • AMResorts, including Secrets, Dreams, Breathless, Now, and Sunscape Hotels & Spa Resorts, plus Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts
  • AIC Hotels & Resorts, such as all all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotels and UNICO and Nobu concepts
  • Barcelo Hotels & Resorts, including their Palace line and Occidental hotels
  • Blue Diamond Hotels & Resorts, such as Royalton, Royalton CHIC, Hideaway, Planet Hollywood, and others
  • Globalia, which encompasses all BeLive Collection properties in Punta Cana

  • TRS Hotels & Resorts by Palladium

“Unifying our offers as a single program creates greater transparency for our travel partners,” ALG Vacations executive v.p., trade brands, Jacki Marks said in a press release statement. “By putting them all together, we’re better able to leverage the strength of our collective brands to negotiate competitive advantages for our agents and shared consumers.”
