Fort Lauderdale CVB 'rides' out incentive

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau launched an agent incentive program with two Certified Vacations Group tour companies: Delta Vacations and Continental Airlines Vacations.

The operators are featuring the Ride Our Waters Free program, in which a $50 voucher validated by a participating hotel can be presented at a choice of six water attractions, including the Water Taxi and Jungle Queen Riverboat.

Under the incentive, for every reservation a travel agent books under the program, the agent will be entered in an Oct. 1 drawing to win a four-night stay in Fort Lauderdale for two that includes round- trip air, rental car and a $500 shopping spree at the Sawgrass Mills outlet complex.

The program is valid from June 1 to Sept. 30 and is a bonus with stays of two nights and longer at 18 participating hotels.

Delta Vacations can be contacted at (800) 221-6666; Continental Airlines Vacations at (800) 634-5555.

For details on the program, contact Theresa Belpulsi, assistant director of leisure sales for the CVB, at (800) 356-1662.
