Sunwing has released its new 2014/2015 Groups Guide, featuring new Groups offers as well as the return of many popular products and incentives.
This year’s edition features helpful information on the tour operator’s agent site http://www.sunwingagents.ca , where travel professionals can find the latest offers, as well as Sunwing’s exclusive Instant Group Quote application. Offering “the same great rate without the wait,” this helpful tool provides instant group travel quotes with a click of a button, any time of the day.
Sunwing is also offering its travel agent rewards program where agents can earn STAR points on every Sunwing or Signature Vacations group booking. Book early and receive double STAR points at select hotels and resorts. Agents are encouraged to visit the agent site for STAR group specials to earn even more.
Sunwing is also bringing back the popular Platinum Club program where agents can earn free seats and other perks for personal travel by booking 100 seats or more. New for 2014/15, Sunwing has also added Platinum Club Plus to earn more seats and even more perks.
