In appreciation of its travel advisor partners, Villas of Distinction is offering up to $750 in bonus commission on every villa booking made throughout the month of February.

Travel advisors who book their clients with the luxury villa rental company from now until Feb. 28, 2019, for travel between now and Dec. 31, 2019, can earn the bonus commission.

For bookings valued at $10,000-$25,000, advisors will get an additional bonus of $250. Bookings of $25,001-$50,000 will receive $500, and bookings of $50,001 or more will earn $750.

The tiers are determined on the base villa cost only. Security deposits, concierge services, TA added booking fees, and tax and services are not included in calculating the bonus commission tiers.

“We love and appreciate our travel advisor partners, and are excited to devote the month of February to thanking them for their continued support by helping them earn extra commission for themselves,” said Steve Lassman, vice president of villa product & agency relations for Villas of Distinction. “We are proud to be the only luxury villa provider, for more than 30 years, to consistently provide our travel agency affiliates with invaluable bonus commissions.”

Villas of Distinction represents thousands of villas in more than 50 destinations across the globe, from the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii to France, Italy, Greece and more. Villas range in size from one-bedroom apartments to 42-bedroom estates; and many are equipped with private pools, butlers, maids and chefs.

Villas of Distinction provides an unbranded site featuring its portfolio without the company name or phone number. Advisors can use this site as a resource with clients to review villa inventory, without worrying about clients contacting the company directly.

"Most people do want to experience new things. There is a small percentage, maybe 10%-15%, who always want to do the same thing: Either return to the same all-inclusive or take the same cruise line to the same Caribbean islands."
