Island Destinations bumps up commissions

By Gay Nagle Myers
Luxury tour operator Island Destinations is offering increased commissions on new bookings for travel through Dec. 15.

The operator's summer/fall brochure features package programs to more than 30 worldwide resorts in its collection of upscale properties.

Agents will receive 16% commissions on packages to Tahiti, 15% on the operator's Hawaii programs and 13% on Caribbean and Mexico offerings.

In addition, the company's Celebrating You agent appreciation program gives agents the opportunity to earn complimentary nights on new bookings in 2012.

"In this highly competitive environment, it is crucial to offer benefits that are both innovative and relevant," said Laurie Palumbo, COO.

"Strong relationships with our hospitality partners and our network of luxury travel advisors keep Island Destinations at the forefront of luxury travel," she said.

A sampling of perks on the summer/fall programs includes a $250 resort credit for spa and dining options at Grace Bay Club in Turks and Caicos; guaranteed upgrades at the Grand Velas Riviera Maya in Mexico; daily buffet breakfast for two at Kea Lani restaurant at the Fairmont Kea Lani in Hawaii; and two spa treatments, a $400 resort credit and a free buffet dinner on bookings of five or more nights at the St. Regis Bali Resort.
