Funjet Vacations' popular “Get Paid to Upgrade” automatic bonus commission program has been expanded across all of Apple Leisure Group Vacations brands (ALGV).
Apple Vacations, Travel Impressions, Southwest Vacations, and United Vacations are now offering an additional 2% commission on the entirety of the hotel portion of the applicable package to participating properties — not just the difference between the pricing of the lead-in and upgrade categories.
For flexible group bookings, bonus earnings can average $500 per reservation. For FIT packages, the average compensation is $100 more per booking than previously.
Participating hoteliers include Barcelo Hotels & Resorts, Blue Diamond Hotels & Resorts, Couples Resorts, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts, Karisma Hotels & Resorts, Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Sandos Resorts, and more in Mexico, the Caribbean and Hawaii. AMResorts will also soon join the program.
Upgrading at certain properties may also qualify consumers for exclusive ALGV travel perks, such as Partner Privileges by Travel Impressions, Exceptional Values with Apple Vacations, and Funjet Insider Circle. These collections of value-added amenities are obtainable only through agent-facing ALGV brands.
“There's no better way to set the tone for 2020 than by reasserting our shared commitment to investing in our travel partners' success and to providing a new, exclusive way to help them elevate the overall experience and satisfaction of their customers while also increasing their earnings significantly … and automatically,” said Wendy Hoekwater, senior vice president, marketing, at Apple Leisure Group Vacations.
Clear notation in search results and a step-by-step guide on how to identify these bonus commission opportunities simplify the sifting process, while on-demand access to the full list of properties provides an at-a-glance overview.
