Edited by Travel Weekly

    A Victorian travel agent has been announced as the winner of the ‘Rewards by Viking’ trade incentive, reeling in a cool $10,000 worth of travel rewards.

    Janet Kizan of Geelong Travel won the competition which ran from 1 June to 31 August and was open to Rewards by Viking members from Australia and New Zealand.

    For every river, ocean and expedition voyage booked during the promotional period, travel agents received one entry into the draw and doubled their Rewards by Viking points.

    Kizan was the lucky entrant to have her name drawn at random and said she was ‘ecstatic’ to have won the prize.

    “I am overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement. I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to Viking for this generous prize and to Geelong Travel for their continued support of me,” she said.

    “I recommend Viking’s Voyages because of their commitment to quality, product diversity, and potential for lasting relationships with satisfied customers.

    “Having travelled with Viking and experienced them, I am passionate about their exceptional products.”

    She intends to celebrate her prize winnings on a white goods upgrade and discretionary spending on herself and her new grandson.

    Rewards by Viking is a trade loyalty program recognising Viking’s dedicated travel agent community, and rewarding agents with points for every ocean, river and expedition voyage sold. Points are redeemed in the online Rewards by Viking store, which hosts a wide range of high-quality brand-name items.
