Great news for travel agent partners of the all-inclusive Bahia Principe Hotels and Resorts. The company has decided to update its loyalty program, referred to as Bahia Principe Rewards, with a points system that is improved and offers enhanced benefits and incentives.
Through this program, Travelweek reports that travel agent partners can gather points when securing referrals (150 points), as well as when they take part in courses online (200 points). Additionally, agents can get double the points when specific sale windows occur, like the Bahia Principe Happiness Sale.
The rewards program is also offering an added one-thousand-point bonus when it comes to new registrations.
The company has also changed the past requirements around the rewards program, where there was a need to book a three-night stay (minimum) to gain access to points. Now, agents can earn points no matter how long the stay is.
The resort chain has categorized its properties into four groups: Luxury Bahia Principe; Grand Bahia Principe (five-star hotels); properties in Spain fall under the Sunlight Bahia Principe; and family-friendly properties lie within their Fantasia Bahia Principe grouping.
Sunlight and Grand resorts garner 100 points for each room, per night; while Fantasia and Luxury offers 125 points for each room booked, per night.
Points earned by agents can be redeem in differing fashions, including: complimentary visits to Bahia properties within in the Canary Islands, Caribbean, and Mallorca; discounts on excursion from up to $75 (USD); complimentary spa treatments within Bahia spas; private airport transfers for free; vouchers for golf at Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Golf Club or Bahia Principe La Romana Golf Club; as well as dinners for two, that are complementary.
The rewards program will now recognize agents on a bi-monthly basis via a ranking system, where they can win complimentary stays, as well as iPads and iPhones. There will also be a huge annual ranking conducted at the end of the year.
