TravelBrands and RCI will each match all donations made by Oct. 31, 2019. TravelBrands will also give travel agents 2x Loyalty Rewards points for any RCI bookings made online.

“Bahamas is a beautiful country that serves so many Canadian travellers and agents year-round. Now is the time for us to come together and help our Bahamian friends,” says Nathalie Tanious, senior vice president, TravelBrands. “We want our donating efforts to go as far as possible, and that is why we partnered with RCI to triple agents’ donations. Any amount helps and we thank you in advance for supporting this important initiative.”

How to help

For every RCI booking made online through TravelBrands between Sept. 16 and Oct. 31, 2019, travel agents will earn 2x Loyalty Rewards points. The points will be added into agents’ accounts once the passengers have sailed. The TravelBrands Loyalty Rewards program allows agents to collect points and redeem them for a multitude of rewards. This includes various merchandise, travel, gift cards and the ability to donate to foundations and charities.

To donate Loyalty Rewards points to the Bahamas Disaster Relief Fund, agents must simply log onto their Loyalty Rewards account and click on the donate button. From there, they must select the amount they would like to donate.

Donation amounts include $10, $25, $50 or more. Once the donation period is over, both TravelBrands and RCI will match the grand total, tripling the total amount.
