Jamaica's Couples Resorts Ups Travel Agent Commission

The Oasis Spa Villas, at its flagship resort Couples Tower Isle, Ocho Rios, Jamaica. 


Couples Resorts in Jamaica has increased agent commissions to 15 percent, up from 12%, for new bookings made after May 14.

This move comes as part of an expanded travel agent incentive and education program that features Couples Resorts Travel Agent University. The online training tool designed to better equip travel partners with key selling-points and differentiators for the brand.

Agents who have completed the online program will be eligible for the higher commission. Couples Ambassadors will also receive additional incentives including $10 per night booked in bonus cash and one free night's stay to the travel agent for every seven nights booked.

Couples Resorts operates four couples-only, all-inclusive luxury resorts: Couples Tower Isle, Couples Sans Souci, Couples Swept Away and Couples Negril.
