Frequently Asked Questions
The allure of travel works for both management and their customers – we know!
The real question is where best to spend you resources to maximize employee motivation and promotions impact. Millenium Travel and Promotions business credibility and success answers the following key questions.
What is a vacaction certificate?
It’s similar to a gift certificate but for travel. You are buying the vacation in advance for someone else, usually good for one year. The vacation “cerf” can be good for hotel, air and hotel, all-inclusive or a cruise. There are terms of participation when using the incentive certificate.
Why use travel incentives?
Travel is considered to be the most desired and effective reward. During a recent email survey. The majority of all respondents said that travel incentives are the most effective, as compared to cash or other merchandise incentives.
Vacation Incentive Programs carry a far higher perceived value that using a conventional marketing program such as 25% off regular price, etc. It is amazing how many times we have seen these programs in place only to witness average or even poor sales results.
Offering the high-perceived value of a vacation instead of a discount is more effective and produces positive and dramatic results. Effective incentive programs can produce multi-million dollar returns
Do the Travel Incentive products really offer you a solution?

How do your incentive programs work?
Your company will give out the brochure type incentives, which have the certificates inside of them. The customer then fills the registration card out and mails it in to Millenium Travel within the space of time specified in that cert. A reservations package is then mailed out to the customer with instructions on how to take the vacation. Millenium does the rest.
Is there a catch in your incentives?
No there is no cathch. There are no timeshare presentations or tours to take. We are a trusted licensed and bonded travel agency. We purchase these vacations, airfare, car rentals, hotel and resort rooms in bulk at wholesale prices in order to fullfill the vacations. Some programs require minimal refundable room guarantee deposits, some require small processing fees. This refundable guarantee deposit is to ensure that the travelers will show up. Terms of participation are stated in each incentive brochure certificate.
Are Millenium’s promotions easy to use?

Once you are committed, the efficiency with which you execute is really dependent on the travel incentive company you choose.

Do the recepients have to take their vacation right away?
No, they do not. In most cases our programs provide up to a year or more to take the vacation. Other arrangements can be made under extenuating circumstances.
Once I purchase your vacation packages, can I sell them retail?
No. These vacation packages are strictly for incentive purposes only. And any and all other uses are strictly prohibited and will void out the certificate.
Do they demosntrate that they understand the clients business needs?
Look for the business solution provider who asks “you” questions before pitching their ideas. Could they really be your on-going consultants? Do they help you define your motivation and performance improvements needs? Do they approach your needs beyond merely offering to sell you their product?
