Travellers Choice is taking its top 30 Choice Award winners on three unforgettable cruise journeys to Europe, Asia and the South Pacific in 2016, while also rewarding them with exclusive sales incentives and service grants worth up to $1500 per agency.
The top performing agencies were presented with Gold, Silver and Bronze Choice Awards over the weekend during the Travellers Choice Annual Shareholders’ Conference, held at the five-star Pullman Melbourne Albert Park.
Ten Travellers Choice members were named in each award category, with winners determined by their level of support for the national retail group’s broad stable of preferred suppliers.
Silver Choice Award recipients will be the first to enjoy their exclusive prize when in March 2016 they travel, as guests of The Cruise Team and Princess Cruises, on a five-night Sapphire Princess cruise from Singapore to Thailand, with visits to Ko Samui and Bangkok.
In April 2016, Celebrity Cruises will then take Bronze Choice Award winners on an eight-night South Pacific journey onboard Celebrity Solstice, visiting Lifou, Noumea and Isle of Pines.
The final journey will take Gold Choice Award winners to France in May 2016 where they will experience Scenic’s seven-night ‘Idyllic Rhone’ river cruise from Nice to Lyon.
All agencies receiving Choice Awards will also participate next year in exclusive sales incentives with selected suppliers.
In addition, each will receive a grant of up to $1500 per agency, which can be put towards the cost of any Travellers Choice support service – including local area marketing activities, co-branded signage, stationery and uniforms, or the group’s recently expanded range of Digital Managed Services.
Travellers Choice Chief Executive Christian Hunter congratulated this year’s Choice Award winners for their contribution to the group’s ongoing success in 2015.
“The past 12 months has been one of the most exciting periods in Travellers Choice’s history, with the Company announcing its third consecutive record profit and being named as Australia’s Best Travel Agency Group at the prestigious National Travel Industry Awards,” says Hunter.
“As always, our network’s dedication to supporting preferred suppliers underpins our success, which is why our Choice Award winners deserve such memorable rewards and recognition. Their efforts have delivered benefits to the entire Travellers Choice group.”
