Discover The Palm Beaches (DTPB) has launched an incentive program for travel agencies and agents that secure business to the destination. In partnership with Travelport, a global distribution system (GDS) travel technology company, the initiative targets agents based in Florida and the neighboring states of Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Louisiana and Texas. Agencies and agents who utilize Travelport reservation systems will automatically be eligible to receive an additional 3 percent commission when booking business to Palm Beach County hotels.
The booking window through Travelport’s GDS is now through Nov. 30, 2020, for travel redemption through April 15, 2021.
The purpose of the program is three-fold:
- Increase exposure of The Palm Beaches with those actively seeking to travel to or within The Sunshine State
- Further generate short-term and long-term bookings to The Palm Beaches
- Thank the travel agent community for their continued support
“This exciting GDS partnership will elevate the destination’s visibility more than in years past,” said Erick Garnica, DTPB’s senior director of leisure travel industry sales, in a press release statement. “It will drive continued business to area hotels, boost the local economy and serve as a way to show appreciation to our valued travel consultants working especially hard during these challenging times.”
DTPB serves as the tourism arm for all 39 cities and towns that collectively make up Palm Beach County. Key cities and towns include Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, Singer Island and Riviera Beach, Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach and Boca Raton.
