Incentive travel trips are precisely what they sound like: excursions that employees take as a group after they accomplish an incentivized goal, typically one that involves charting new financial territory, such as beating last year’s sales goals, adding a record number of new clients to the client roster, signing a record number of clients to new contracts, etc. As management would expect, the trip serves as a motivation to achieve such goals, as much as it serves as a reward.
The More Adventurous the Trip, the Better
Incentive travel trips are as diverse as the achievements that set them in motion. But, in each case, the goal is to plan a trip that the travelers will remember — if not literally for a lifetime, at least until next year, when a new trip is planned for achieving new goals. There are plenty of adventurous trips that fit the bill, including: hot air balloon trips above breathtaking scenery, trips to remarkable historical places, and trips to luxurious spots such as wineries, to name a few.
If this all sounds rather expensive, make no mistake: it is. However, companies that plan incentive travel trips pay far less for the trip than the dollar amount of the financial achievement that the trip rewards making incentive trips a sensible investment in business growth. In fact, some companies find that rewarding employees with incentive travel trips along with raises and bonuses is more affordable that using raises and bonuses alone, especially in the long run.
For the Best Deals, Use an Experienced Travel Planner
Incentive travel trips may be costly in their own right, but using the services of a travel incentive trip planner will help mitigate the expense. In addition to working with destination providers to get group deals on travel, lodging, and entertainment options, special events for the trip can also be planned with your company’s travel budget in mind. Ultimately, the trip doesn’t decide how much you spend. Rather, you decide how much you spend on the trip; you remain in financial control.
