Canadian Package Perks?

Recommended Posts

I'm planning for Bahia Principe Riviera Maya in Nov 2015. I know that you can usually get perks for group bookings, like free upgrades or free flights, and I'm wondering what kinds of perks are out there? I'd like to find a company that gives perks that can be used towards the guests rather than us. I'd much rather be able to get a free flight or room for one of my college aged siblings than a bigger or free room for myself.  Did you get any perks?

This is normally dependent a lot on your TA relationship with your tour operator and resort. For us, we got upgrade to elite on Sunwing, credit for one adult package for every 16 (So 1 free "room" for every 8) and free unlimited private events at the resort based on number of guests booked. (lowest resort incentive was free cocktail reception, highest was unlimitted private events- but this was specific to our resort)

@@Maggietron like @kmk2016 said its usually based on the relationship with the TA. I have contact three TA and they said i would have a free room if i had 20 guest. So for ever 20 guest there's a free room but you have to find your own travel to and from the airport/hotel. as the agents provides travel.

We get one free every 11th adult booked (Max 3), and free private events if over 75 room nights - We're at 117 room nights now :), She's working on getting us an upgrade in flight right now

 

We're distributing the free adult to make everyone's rate lower

We get a free passenger every 16 (max 3) so we used it for my FI sister who is a single mom paying for her son as well. And we used to fly in our photographer then one for us. We are with air Canada vacations

@@tygrrlily I like that idea, making everyone's rate lower. I wonder if I could give the travel agent a list of people we'd like any credits to be distributed amongst?

You definitely can. The credit can be split between whomever you want as the TA holds the credit. If you don't use it for yours/others vacation packages... You have to wait until after travel and your TA will write you a cheque
