James Keller and Susan McDougal of Adventure Travel recently presented the 2014 Vendor Partner of the Year Award to Laura Heidt with Travelex Insurance! This annual award is presented to the vendor partner that exemplifies “Service Non-Stop,” by providing marketing support, training, and agent support to the entire Vacation Department. Laura was nominated and won this year’s award by a landslide! All associates in the Adventure Travel office voted Laura as their choice for the exemplary vendor. Travelex is our preferred travel insurance provider and offers an array of coverages and benefits, which are sold by our Vacation Team to our customers to insure their trips.

Congratulations to Laura and a very big thanks to her for her support and service!

Your Vacation Department thanks you for all of your referrals! May was a great month for two lucky employees, Meredith Davenport and Shirley’s Lawrence. Meredith’s name was placed into a drawing for reaching her referral goal. Shirley’s referrals turned into booked trips and resulted in her winning a gift card!

If you’re not familiar with the RezReferral program, please either speak with your manager or call the vacation department at extension 6467.

Don’t forget about the Vacation Payment Plan available to YOU! On certain trips, you can have payments towards your trip deducted from your paycheck. So start planning, packing, and telling all your friends and clients about YOUR vacation department!

Congratulations to Hope Miller and Cecil Kollmansperger for earning gift cards in November for their RezReferrals! Yep, they’re getting a little extra spending money this Christmas and you can too!  Just send all those personal travel requests to your dedicated vacation agent and log your RezReferral on RezPortal.  If you don’t know who your dedicated agent is, or are new to the company and don’t know about this program, please contact anyone in the vacation department for more information.
Again, big thanks go out to Hope and Cecil!

I am happy to announce that Susan McDougal has been promoted to Director, Vacation Travel effective immediately.  Susan will still work for Keller, but will be assuming many additional responsibilities.  Susan has a true passion for vacation travel and we are excited about having her in this new role.  She has fully embraced our REACH 2014 goals for the vacation department and will be working closely with our vacation agents and independent contractors to implement new strategies and programs to ensure our success!

Please join me in congratulating Susan!


Thank you for all the vacation referrals for June!  And a special “kudos” to Monica Lang and Kim Brodie for their bookings!!   They will each receive gift cards for their efforts.  Remember, you don’t have to wait until the end of the month to submit your referrals and bookings to your manager.  Once you have enough to complete a card, forward the form to your manager.  Your manager will verify and forward to me.

Don’t forget about those end-of-summer specials!  5-nights in Cancun at an all-inclusive resort for only $555 per person.  Walt Disney World is offering 30% off for stays August 15-September 29.  And, for those not knowing yet what they want to do, we offer gift certificates in any denomination.

If you don’t know who your vacation agent is, just ask!  If you need a form, just ask!  If you want to know more about the program, just ask!  Thank you for supporting YOUR vacation department!!!

Be on the lookout for new vacation booking and referral forms. These forms will allow you to fill out your referrals on the computer. After filling them out you will email them to your manager, who will forward the email to Susan for processing. No need to wait until the end of the month, send them in as soon as they are full! This will make the process speedier and easier for everyone as well as ensure you get your gift cards. Also, please remember referrals are cruises, packages or tours.

The Vacation Department loves your referrals! You will be receiving an email from your referral agent introducing herself and the best ways to reach her. Thanks for supporting your Vacation Department.
