St Kitts Tourism Authority Celebrating Travel Agents

In honor of National Travel Advisor Day, the St. Kitts Tourism Authority is kicking off a special month-long program to celebrate the agents and advisors who plan everything from romantic getaways to family vacations. Travel agents and advisors are critical to the rebuilding and rebound of tourism for the Federation and we are delighted to be embarking on a series of travel trade activities throughout the United States to increase brand awareness, improve their knowledge of the destination and current promotions, and encourage them to plan their clients’ next great family vacation or romantic getaway. This is timed accordingly with the ongoing Five-Day Getaway promotion with deals from the Park Hyatt St. Kitts, St. Kitts Marriot Resort, Four Seasons Resort Nevis, and Montpelier Plantation & Beach which give agents and advisors all the more reason to recommend St. Kitts as a destination for their clients. This exciting program invites travel agents and advisors to complete various actions throughout the month of May to earn points. Furthermore, for each booking to St. Kitts through July 31, 2021, travel agents will earn a $200 commission. At the end of the month, participating agents and advisors can redeem their points for cash rewards. The person with the most points accumulated will be awarded a spot on a future FAM trip to St. Kitts!

“We wanted to take this opportunity to show our appreciation and say ‘thank you’ to the loyal and dedicated travel professionals who promoted St. Kitts both before and during the pandemic. It has not been an easy year, but travel is picking up and together we can reinvigorate interest in St. Kitts and offer travelers the rejuvenating getaway they are looking for now,” said Racquel Brown, CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority. “St. Kitts has always enjoyed a strong and valued partnership with the travel agent and travel advisor community, and this month we’ll be recognizing and rewarding agents who are eager to learn more about the destination and drive travel to St. Kitts.”

Points will be awarded for the following activities:

  • Book a Trip to St. Kitts
    • Every agent/advisor who logs a trip in the month of May 2021 (travel dates can be anytime in the future) will receive 500 points.
    • All booked trips should transit through RLB International Airport.
  • Become a St. Kitts Expert
    • Each agent/advisor who takes and completes the St. Kitts travel expert course through Travel Agent University will receive 300 points.

    • Throughout the month of May, the St. Kitts Tourism Authority will host a series of webinars. Two webinars have already been announced and information on additional webinars will be posted on the St. Kitts Tourism Authority website, shared with our list of subscribed agents and advisors, and promoted via our LinkedIn page. For each webinar attended the agent/advisor will receive 200 points.
    • Two scheduled webinars are as follows:

The program will conclude on May 31, 2021.
