Couples Resorts has launched a new travel agent booking engine that will streamline the process for agents in the booking and managing of all client reservations. To coincide with its debut, the resort group is offering a double bonus incentive of $20.00 per night for all FIT bookings made on the new portal between now and Oct. 5, as well as a free night for every seven nights booked.
Additionally, a new travel agent CRM tool, called TAConnect, also allows members to check and manage their rewards as well as communicate with the resorts’ BDMs. Agents can easily register to become a Preferred Travel Agent and participate in the Couples Resorts Rewards program via couples.com. It is open to U.S. and Canadian travel agencies and travel advisors.
“We are looking to expand our loyal travel agent community by enhancing the experience already offered to agents participating in our programs. These tools offer is a safe, convenient and rewarding way to make and manage bookings for our resorts,” said Abraham Issa, president of sales & marketing at Couples Resorts in a press release statement. “We want to make it easy for agents to book their clients’ vacations and earn perks for themselves. Our goal is to continue to improve all of our technologies and rewards for loyal guests and travel partners.”
By signing up and reporting bookings, agents earn rewards of $10 per reported room night after the booking is confirmed. However, the current promotional period doubles that reward for all new bookings made directly with Couples Resorts through Oct. 5 via the new platform, bringing it to $20 per room night. Additionally, for every seven confirmed room nights, travel agents also earn a free room night for their own use.
“We have a large contingency of loyal, repeat guests and subsequently, as a premium AI brand, our reviews and reputation online continue to become stronger,” Issa commented. “We hope these third party reviews help make this an easy sell for travel specialists and subsequently allow more and more agents to have confidence in booking Couples Resorts for their clients. This new portal is an example of our dedication to provide the best possible service and experience, for both agents and their guests.”
