FIT Ruums, Webjet’s new B2B travel distributor in Asia, has unveiled an exciting new rewards program aimed at developing closer relationships between travel agents and suppliers.
Driven by the motto “Always Stronger Together”, the newly-launched FIT Rewards (rewards.fitruums.com) allows travel suppliers to directly incentivise and educate agents with a series of rewards, from lifestyle products and hotel stays to bespoke event invitations and fam trips.
“When FIT Ruums launched in November 2016, we promised to develop strong bonds between our partners in the Asian travel trade. FIT Rewards creates a platform for our supplier partners to launch their new products, allowing more targeted product penetration, education and adoption by their key bookers in the travel trade,” said Daryl Lee, Director of FIT Ruums’ parent company, WebBeds FZ.
“By rewarding our members for every booking they make, we are driving additional value to our clients, suppliers and the wider Asian travel industry. And by enabling suppliers to tailor their rewards to the specific needs of each market, we are creating a platform for our partners and clients to work together more closely than before. It is definitely a win-win for all parties involved,” Mr Lee added.
Travel suppliers, including NTOs, will be able to tailor these rewards to the individual needs of each market by offering invitations to exclusive local events, bespoke educational activities, behind-the-scenes tours, and other exclusive offerings that are unavailable in the shops.
A series of online stores, similar to the iTunes Store, will be created for each Asian market, further enhancing the suppliers’ ability to target their local clients.
“FIT Rewards is an attractive, rewarding, and above all, fun way for Asian travel agents to earn additional benefits for doing what they love – booking travel,” said Kok Sheng Sun, Chief Commercial Officer of FIT Ruums. “We anticipate high demand from the agent community, as our partners create ever more interesting and appealing redemption opportunities.
“We look forward to unveiling an exciting new range of products and activities, and expanding our online reward stores across Asia in the coming months,” he concluded.
