Mexico’s Velas Resorts has expanded its Velas Resorts Experts bonus program for travel agents, the company announced this week.
Agents are rewarded with generous bonuses and access to special amenities, complimentary nights, suite upgrades and VIP amenities for their clients, as well as an extra bonus of 50 per cent for all reservations and qualified bookings made during the first month of their Velas Expert registration. This bonus is in addition to any commissions made. A referral program is also valid where, in addition to all of the above benefits, agents are also awarded for referring teammates to the Velas Experts program. Payment of bonuses take place within 30 days after the customers have left the hotel.
The program, in which agents become experts on the properties online by completing video lessons and quizzes for each resort, enhances the online relationship between the resorts and agents. As each resort is learned and quizzes passed, the agent becomes more qualified and moves up in the different levels of certification: Velas Expert, Master Agent, and Elite Agent.
Currently offering four luxury all-inclusive properties in Vallarta-Nayarit and Riviera Maya, a fifth Velas Resorts property will open Dec. 20 in Los Cabos.
Agents can easily register at the resorts’ dedicated website at www.velasexperts.com and complete the video lessons and quizzes to obtain an expert certification for each property. Agents can also learn more about the Velas Experts program by watching this short video.
