Sunwing Unveils New Groups Guide, Booking Incentives

Open Jaw

Sunwing has unveiled the latest edition of its Groups Guide, which features various insider tips, exclusive perks and savings opportunities on group vacation and cruise packages. 

New to the guide is the ‘Book 10, Hold 20’ promotion – when an agent books 10 seats for any group type with a reduced deposit, they can hold an additional 20 seats with no deposit required. Seats may be held for 60 days or up until 120 days before departure (whichever comes first). Plus, groups can add up to double their original group size at the original contracted rate (maximum of 50 guests total or 20 guests total for cruise packages).

The tour operator has also announced the return of its STARMillionaire program, giving agents the opportunity to win one million STAR Agent Reward Points that convert to cash (a cash value of $1,800). Agents have the chance to win when they book a group of 10 adults or more by 27AUG, 2019.

Also returning is Sunwing’s Groups Plus Premium, a collection of over 180 properties that offer various concessions and competitive inclusions exclusive to Sunwing groups customers. In addition, groups still enjoy all the same benefits of Groups Plus including private transfers with a minimum of 15 passengers arriving on the same flight, complimentary room upgrades for the group leader and rooms located in the same area of the hotel. Plus, when eight adults or more travel together, one adult can travel for free.

Group pricing is also available on cruise packages with MSC Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line and Marella Cruises when upwards of eight guests cruise together. Plus, when travel agents book a group cruise package by 27AUG, 2019 for sailings between 1NOV, 2019 and 30APR, 2020, they can earn 10X STAR Agent Reward Points that convert to cash and the 16th adult can travel for free (including air, cabin and pier transfers).

The Sunwing Platinum Club is also back for 2019 with a chance for travel agents to earn free seats, Elite Plus upgrades and excursion credits. Depending on the number of bookings made, agents can achieve a higher tier and earn higher rewards. Sunwing is now offering more options to earn: when agents book a minimum of 75 group seats, they can earn up to a $1,000 seat credit towards a future group booking.
