The winning UK travel agents of a 5-star holiday as part of an agent reward campaign spearheaded by the Jamaica Tourist Board have been revealed.
The top five agents who recorded the most bookings and who are invited to travel to Jamaica in December this year are:
• Mr Joel Hills – Kenwood Travel
• Ms Joanna Moorthy – TUI Edinburgh Gyle
• Ms Nadeene Dwarke – Club Caribbe
• Ms Susan Brown – TUI Thornaby
• Ms Jaclyn Wood – Blue Bay Travel
To qualify to be invited on the annual White Affair, agents had to log their Jamaica bookings on www.jamaicarewards.co.uk. These top bookers have been invited along with a guest to fly Premium Class on Virgin Atlantic to the White Affair on 11-16 December. This year the event is billed as “Celebrating Your Excellence”. The agents and their guest will be hosted at the brand-new Excellence Oyster Bay resort in Montego Bay.
The top performing UK agents will be joined by other top agents from the USA and Canada. Everyone is encouraged to bring a guest to join them on this special trip where they will have the opportunity to experience some of Jamaica’s newest attractions and to stay at the newest resorts to have opened on the island in recent months.
In 2017 over 1500 agents logged bookings registering a total of 30,000 room nights with a value of £15 million on the Jamaica Rewards programme.
Nadeene Dwarke representing Club Caribbe who will be joining the White Affair event said: “I am delighted to have qualified for the White Affair and have the chance to visit the incredibly luxurious Excellence Oyster Bay. The White Affair is such a unique reward! The Jamaica Tourist Board reward program not only provides cash rewards for all my bookings, but they then recognise you for all the work I do in selling Jamaica to my customers. It is such an exciting, diverse and vibrant destination and I cannot wait to attend the White Affair and speak even more passionately about Jamaica upon my return.”
Torrance Lewis, district sales manager Jamaica Tourist Board said: “Travel agents are one of the most powerful sales channels we have in the UK and our relationship with them across the country is very important to us. This year we are theming the White Affair event ‘Celebrating Your Excellence’, so fitting as the resort will be an Excellence resort and our guests’ achievements deserve that accolade and acknowledgement. The White Affair is the best reward out there, and we are confident all our top sellers will return to the UK as even bigger fans of Jamaica.”
