Travel Weekly's Mexico E-letter: April 4, 2007

TRAVEL IMPRESSIONS is promoting Mexico's lucrative weddings and honeymoon market with a couple of deals. The company is promoting a $500 agent incentive for booking a wedding group of 10 rooms or more at Karisma Resorts' Azul Blue Hotel & Spa and El Dorado Royale Resort & Spa in the Riviera Maya. In addition, couples who book a group wedding or honeymoon of 10 rooms or more at either property will receive a free gift. The $500 agent bonus and free gift for the customer are in effect for bookings made at either property by June 18 for travel through January 2008.


THE OPERATOR also launched a Blissful Beginnings promotion for honeymooners at more than 170 properties in its product line, including several in Mexico. Blissful Beginnings offers such things as a resort credit of $100 per room, free nights and room upgrades, free spa services and complimentary meals in addition to the regular package inclusions. The promotion is valid for bookings of three nights or longer at participating resorts made by April 30 for travel through Dec. 20. At the Excellence Riviera Cancun, for example, Travel Impressions is offering a $100 resort credit per room. For information or reservations, call (800) 284-0044 or visit
