Travel advisors booking Hawaii vacations this month can increase profits through Blue Sky Tours latest promotion as the Hawaii and South Pacific wholesaler is offering commission on airfare to the Aloha state throughout March.

Advisors can earn 8 percent commission on flights via United Airlines and Delta Air Lines booked now through March 30, 2019 for travel anytime.

The enhanced commission will be available on flights to Kahului (OGG), Lihue (LIH), Kona (KOA), Hilo (ITO), and Honolulu (HNL). The 8 percent commission for flights to Hilo International Airport is only available via United Airlines

The promotion applies to new bookings only and is combinable with other savings and hotel offers within Blue Sky Tours’ portfolio, such as $150 at select Aqua-Aston Hospitality properties, from now through March 21, and up to 44 percent off rates at select Independent Hawaii Hotels & Resorts, on bookings made from March 25 to 28, featuring complimentary nights, dining credits and more.

In addition, agents will continue to receive up to 15 percent commission on land components—including car rentals, excursions and travel protection—as well as Agent Bonus Cash offers.

“Agents throughout the cold states have had success convincing clients to swap snow shovels for surf boards—and we’re excited to reward qualifying Hawaii bookings with 8 percent air commission,” said Ron Jacobs, president of Blue Sky Tours.

Previously part of the parent company Mark Travel Corp, along with sister brands Funjet Vacations, Southwest Vacations, and United Vacations, Blue Sky Tours in now under the Apple Leisure Group umbrella. Since then, the brand has introduced new features to improve travel advisors experience, such as a new call back feature. If a call cannot be immediately answered, callers will hear an estimated hold time. If the hold time is estimated to be five minutes or longer, the caller will have the option to continue to hold or to receive a callback, giving advisors more leeway.

Tip of the Day

I do think there are possibilities for traveler advisors to make money doing domestic trips. I charge a planning fee for my time and expertise, and then book commissionable hotels and activities that meet the client’s needs.
