Each year, successful companies search for the best way to drive revenue. From rebates, to coupon programs, to pricing strategy, there are many options for increasing revenue. But one often over-looked option is a luxurious incentive travel trip that rewards executives for achieving business goals. Not just your typical European get-a-way, but a luxurious trip that delivers adventure, cultural experiences, unique foods, and such bliss that time is suspended. Sound like something your employees would enjoy? Well you are not alone. Thousands of companies offer some type of travel reward to their employees every year. Some companies develop the plan on their own, others wisely trust the trip planning process to an experienced planner of incentive-based travel trips, such as Incentive Travel Solutions.
After all, the primary goal of incentive-based travel is to create a journey whose destination, activities, and accommodations combine to form an unforgettable experience that motivates executives to work diligently to qualify for the next incentive-based trip. When you choose us as the facilitator of your luxurious travel trip, we’ll handle the following five aspects of your trip to ensure that your executives are well-rewarded for hard work.
1. Destination Options
Many companies that contact us already have an idea of where they would like to travel. We can further simplify the selection process by presenting a broad range of destination options that offer what our clients want to experience on their unique journey, from the minute they depart to the minute they return.
For example, we recently attended a client on a trip to Rome, Italy, that featured observing classic architecture, a reception and dinner in the gardens of the Vatican, and private tours of timeless landmarks. We recently attended another client on a trip to Banff, Canada — an excursion that featured horseback riding in the mountains and an epic dinner party on a mountainous plateau. While your travel is up to you, we’re happy to make suggestions.
2. Travel Accommodations
One of the least enjoyable aspects of taking a major trip is coordinating plans for arriving at the destination. Scheduling travel by plane, boat, or bus, and checking periodically with travel providers to ensure that your plans remain properly coordinated doesn’t exactly put you in the relaxed mindset that you would like to have leading up to the trip.
That’s why we handle all aspects of the travel process, from selecting and overseeing means of travel for arriving at the destination to choosing and overseeing means of travel after you arrive. An incentive travel trip doesn’t begin when you arrive at the destination; it starts when you board the first means of travel. From the moment you depart, we ensure that you travel in the comfort and style you envision for your journey.
3. Lodging Accommodations
Scheduling lodging accommodations is another tedious aspect of trip planning that we handle on your behalf. In addition to helping you choose lodging that matches the flavor of your trip, we take all the necessary measures to ensure that your lodging accommodations are ready and waiting for your group when it disembarks at the destination. No one likes to hassle with hotel arrangements; when you use our services, you don’t have to.
4. Memorable Travel Activities
The memorableness of incentive travel trips is largely defined by activities that travelers participate in after reaching the destination. From simple sightseeing excursions to participating in unique events such as five-star dinners in the luxury dining cars of a passenger trains, most companies want their travel itinerary to be filled with exciting event after exciting event. This is the kind of itinerary we specialize in creating.
5. Unforeseen Issues
Even the most well-made travel plans can experience occasional glitches. This is why we send an experienced group of travel specialists with you on your trip. Whether you need a dinner reservation on short notice, a gap in hotel service needs to be addressed, an event needs to be rescheduled due to weather, etc., our staff addressed the issue expediently. We are dedicated to making your incentive trip run as smoothly as it does on the itinerary.
