Travel Impressions is launching Partner Privileges, an inventive program that allows clients who book with Travel Impressions agents to receive exclusive privileges at no additional cost to make their vacation extra special. Travel advisors can click here to watch a video on the inaugural Partner Privileges program, which debuts August 12.
With the all-new Partner Privileges program, the agent-dedicated tour operator has partnered with some of the most in-demand sun-and-sand hotels and resorts to provide Travel Impressions agents’ customers a wealth of exclusive added-value amenities and benefits they won’t find anywhere else in an effort to provide travel professionals with even more marketplace advantages.
“Dedicated to guaranteeing the best for our trusted travel agents, Partner Privileges allows travel professionals to ensure success for their business by developing stronger relationships with their clients,” said Scott Wiseman, president of Travel Impressions. “By offering their consumers exclusive benefits that online competitors cannot, we’re doing our part to answer in greater depth, ‘why book with a travel agent?’”

—Spa credit for services of the guest’s choice, or bundled treatments such as a foot massage with a free cabana rental at Live Aqua Beach Resort Cancun

“These highlights are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what this new program can provide,” Wiseman concludes. “We’re constantly working on finding new ways to add value to booking with our travel partners, and VIP benefits like these can often tip the scales for travelers looking for a more elite, special experience.”
