Don't Take Our Word for It…Here are a Few of the Many Member Kudos We Receive
Overall Membership Value Proposition
I would like to tell you that my experience with your staff and your programs has been an extraordinary one. Having belonged to another consortium for almost 20 years, there is a big difference. I literally received nothing for my investment with the prior organization. Between the value of the Engagement program, the support at the annual Conference, the special commissions and bonus opportunities – they are all worth every bit of the membership dues. What’s more, the quality gets better every year.

Engagement Consumer Marketing
I've always loved Engagement but the new Engagement Select with ClientBase is brilliant. It does all the work for me! I don't have to worry about updating my client list or spend time selecting customers for specific offers. I know it is working because our clients are calling and asking about the offers. Professionally designed direct mail pieces and email -- all free!
Irene Neustaedter, Around the World in 80 Ways
Ever since I began my own travel agency 10 years ago, I’ve used air consolidators, the tour operators’ air option and occasionally an airline’s website. Not anymore. Now I’m sticking with AirPRO whenever I can. I found it easy to use—a very smooth operation—with commissionable fare basis that are actually realistic. The support desk was very helpful too, especially when they explained that I would have no debit memos to worry about. Overall, I’m very happy.

Distinctive Voyages (formerly Vacation Vignettes)
I just wanted to let you know about some clients who recently returned from a Distinctive Voyages cruise in Scandinavia and Russia. When I called them to let them know about the private shore excursion in St. Petersburg, cocktail party and concierge host, they were truly surprised. On their return, they called me and have asked for a list of Voyages sailings for next year. In my client’s words, "This absolutely made our trip. We loved knowing we had a host we could contact if we needed her, and enjoyed meeting the other people from around the country who were included in our group." Thank you for this, as well as the many other programs that you offer to members.

My clients are more knowledgeable when they walk in the door thanks to In-Sites. It has helped us close more bookings, proving it’s another great Vacation.com tool helping us succeed as a business.

Stream Prepaid Hotels Program
The first time I used Stream, I compared both the hotel rate for my client and the commission paid to our agency. In both cases, Stream was better than the other options. This is a great new member benefit!

International Conference & Trade Show
As an attendee at the Conference last week, I want to congratulate you and thank you for a job extremely well done! The General Sessions presented some powerful speakers. I was very impressed and motivated by their ideas, personal drive and their desire to bring out the best in everyone in their organizations. The break-away sessions gave me the opportunity to learn practical information and to address my specific questions. The social times were so much fun as well! What a marvelous experience! I came away refreshed and ready to "Capture Tomorrow." Thanks again, you and your co-workers are amazing!
