BANYAN Tree Hotels & Resorts is giving travel consultants the chance to win a two-night stay in a Spa Pool Villa at Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary in Phuket.
All travel experts and IATA licensed travel advisors who complete the group’s recently launched Xtraordinary Travel Consultants (XTC) University programme between now and May 31 and who successfully pass the final exam are eligible for the prize.
Developed to help travel consultants better promote Banyan Tree and Angsana properties worldwide, XTC University consists of several course modules in categories such as accommodation, amenities and F&B. Travel consultants can sign up for the course on Travel Agent University’s website (www.tauniv.com).
On completion of the course, non-XTC consultants will be encouraged to sign up for the XTC programme, which offers an array of privileges for members who secure bookings at all Banyan Tree and Angsana properties worldwide.
XTC members are awarded one point for every room night they secure. Bookings made for specialty inventory will be recognised with higher points.
There are three different tiers of membership:
• XTC Classic – valid with at least one booking, members are treated to 50 per cent off best available room rates, dining expenses and spa treatments at all Banyan Tree and Angsana hotels and resorts.
• XTC Deluxe – valid for those who achieve between 250 and 450 XTC points, members will receive 75 per cent off best available room rates and 50 per cent off dining and spa services at all Banyan Tree and Angsana properties.
• XTC Premier – the highest ranking level, it is valid for those who earn over 450 XTC points where a top-performing consultant can enjoy an all-expenses-paid one-week getaway for two at a Banyan Tree or Angsana property, inclusive of dining and spa treatments.
For more information and to start participating, bona fide travel consultants can visit the XTC website at banyantree.com/xtc. There are currently over 3,000 agents enrolled in the programme.
