Rental Escapes, providing luxury private villa rentals around the world, is offering bonus commission of up to $5,000 plus double rewards points to travel advisors for the entire month of September in honor of World Tourism Day on Sept. 27. The new initiative is offered through Rental Escapes’ Rewards Program, which provides advisors the opportunity to earn free villa vacations.

“In line with World Tourism Day’s theme of ‘Investing in People, Planet and Prosperity’, we are pleased to offer our biggest promotion yet, acknowledging the invaluable role played by travel advisors in the advancement of the tourism sector,” said Brian Schwimmer, chief executive officer of Rental Escapes, in a media release.

The company also referenced recent industry data from ASTA, which reported that 98 percent of travel agencies are small businesses and nearly 70 percent of those small businesses are female-owned. These entrepreneurs and pioneering women are shaping the industry landscape, benefiting from programs designed to provide essential knowledge on how to meet the growing travel demand.

“We deeply value the profound impact travel advisors wield within the industry, and as reciprocation, we’re excited to double down in our commitment to providing indispensable tools and avenues for growth,” Schwimmer noted.

Rental Escapes’ bonus commission offer is valid for bookings made between September 1-30, 2023, for travel from September 8, 2023, through December 31, 2024. The rewards program offers advisors the opportunity to earn free villa vacations as advisors will earn reward points for each $1 booked which will then be used towards their own personal villa vacation. With the up-to-$5,000 bonus commission offer and double points towards the Rewards Programs for advisors, as well as September being the best time to book holiday travel, advisors are recommended to encourage bookings now for the month of December to lock in travel dates as select villas are still available
