This Christmas, your clients can treat friends and family to the gift of a much-needed holiday with a Club Med Gift Card.
The new offering is a flexible option with no commitment to book for a specific date or destination.
Club Med Gift Cards provide access to over 70 premium Club Med resorts around the world – from the white sandy beaches of the Maldives to the powdery mountains of France.
Best of all, on top of offering 10 per cent commission on all gift card sales, Club Med is providing 10 per cent extra bonus credit for those who purchase a gift card from now until the end of December 2020.
The bonus credit can be used with other promotions, like Club Med’s 30 per cent off Early Bird deal for 2021 travel that’s currently on offer, potentially saving the recipient hundreds of dollars off their next holiday.
Club Med has also announced this week’s Nominate a Mate winner, giving New Zealand based STA Travel agent Samantha Gittoes, who was nominated by her colleague Natalie Langley.
Langley told Club Med what a trooper Sam has been over this challenging period.
The ever-positive Gittoes worked as a top-selling travel agent for the last six years and is originally from Sydney but now calls New Zealand home. She was due to give birth to her first child at the beginning of lockdown, just as the world started to turn upside down.
Due to travel restrictions, her mother was unable to fly to New Zealand to join her for the momentous event.
Instead, due to COVID-19 restrictions, Gittoes could only share her labour with one other person, luckily her housemate (who is coincidently also her store manager) stepped in to fill this role. However, she then had to spend three days alone in the hospital post her baby girls birth.
“Being a new mum is scary in itself, but being in lockdown, on your own and as a new mum with no outside support is terrifying,” Langley said.
When she was due to return to work in August, this timing aligned with the announcement that her employer was going into administration, leaving Sam without a job and in a particularly financially challenging environment.
Sam has gone on to share her story to help others giving birth during this time – you can find out more about this or support her plight here.
