Mexico Velas expands agent bonus program By Meagan Drillinger / December 23, 2016 Share 1 -- Mexico's Velas Resorts has expanded its incentive bonus program for travel agents. The program, where agents become experts on the properties online, enhances the online relationship between the resorts and agents. As each resort is learned and quizzes passed, the agent becomes more qualified and moves up in the different levels of certification: Expert, Master Agent and Elite Agent. Agents are rewarded with bonuses and access to special amenities, complimentary nights, suite upgrades and VIP amenities for their clients, as well as a 50% extra bonus for all reservations and qualified bookings made during the first month of their Velas Expert registration. This bonus is in addition to any commissions made. The Velas Resorts Experts program offers three levels of easily obtained certification for travel agents. The Velas Expert must book one to 29 room nights and become a certified expert in at least one hotel to earn 1,000 welcome points, an anniversary gift, day pass and other perks. A Master agent must reserve 50 room nights and be certified in all five Velas Resorts. This will earn 2,000 additional points, bonus payouts with prepaid Visa card, access to specialized segment certifications (Weddings, Groups and Conventions), and a checkbook with special amenities for clients.Finally, Elite Agents must book at least 75 room nights, as well as maintaining their expert certification in all five Velas Resorts, to earn 3,500 additional points plus the most exclusive guest amenities for clients. The multiple benefits are accumulative and increase as the agent progresses through the curriculum. Points can be used toward stays at any of the resorts or at an online store with spa and beauty salon services, in suite amenities and more. Agents can register at the resorts' dedicated website, www.velasexperts.com, and complete the video lessons and quizzes to obtain an expert certification for each property.
