“Hottest ticket in town”: Trafalgar announces annual Acclaim incentive

Hold onto your hats, agents because Trafalgar has announced its annual agent incentive trip, Acclaim!

2019 will see the brand’s top performing agents visit the brand’s newest destination: Africa.

And this year, there’s a new twist: for the first time, the incentive is going global, with agents from all of Trafalgar’s sales regions having the chance to be part of the industry’s greatest incentive trip.

To get things off to a flying start, with Trafalgar’s 10% early payment discount (EPD) expiring on the 31st of January, now is the time for agents to lock in bookings for 2019 travel, to be in the running for a place on this trip of a lifetime.

The 10-day trip in seven destinations will once again see winners treated to Trafalgar’s incredible travel experiences with plenty of VIP surprises along the way.

Starting in Cape Town, the well-deserving winners will experience highlights from the top-selling Essence of South Africa trip.

Iconic highlights include ascending the iconic Table Mountain and exploring Cape Peninsula, from trendy Camps Bay to Cape Point to the penguins of Boulder’s Beach and experiencing an exclusive Be My Guest lunch with a family in their 18th Century Cape Dutch home in the majestic Cape Winelands.

A night to remember will also be the brands inaugural Gala en Rouge, held in a top secret venue.  As they say the best things in life are worth waiting for, with Trafalgar choosing to unveil surprises surrounding the trip in the coming months, as agents get one step closer to securing their spot.

“We are AgentsFirst and we recognize the importance of providing our valued partners with an opportunity to experience first-hand the incredible experiences and moments that Trafalgar offers their customers as well as our brand innovation,” said Gavin Tollman, CEO of Trafalgar.

Hailing from South Africa, the destination is particularly special to Tollman, who is excited and proud to unveil the destination to Trafalgar’s Acclaim winners.

“Africa sits very high on many people’s wish-list, but until you go there, you don’t really understand how it’s going to change you. It’s one of those places that, when you leave it, you understand the very essence of the reason we travel.”

“The Acclaim trip is renowned as the industry’s best trade incentive. And with us returning to our family’s roots, our agent partners are guaranteed that this will be an extraordinary trip, to an extraordinary destination, that will be spoken about for years to come. We are pulling out all the stops.”

With each Trafalgar booking, agents will be one step closer to securing their spot on Acclaim 2019.

Agents in the running will receive a monthly maildrop to advise whether they’re in the running or can visit the Trafalgar Tribe Facebook page to keep up to date on how to get in on the action and where it will take them.
