Jamaica rewards top selling travel agents

The Jamaica Tourist Board recently rewarded its top selling travel agents with an all-expenses paid trip to its annual end of year gala dinner at The Moon Palace, Ocho Rios in Jamaica.

Entitled the ‘All White Affair’ thanks to its white themed dress code, the five-day event recognised the top 50 selling global agents based on bookings made in the calendar year and which were logged onto Jamaica Rewards.

The group, which included five UK agents and their guests, were flown in Club World on British Airways to join the top performers from the USA and Canada. The lucky five UK travel agents were: Bill Munro from Barrhead Travel; Travel Counsellor Laraine Drage; Elizabeth O’ Neill from TUI Corby; Nathalie Trim from TUI Wood Green; and Joanne Stewart from Blue Bay Travel.

The weekend included receptions, tours around the island and culminated with an awards banquet hosted by Tourism Minister the Hon. Edmund Bartlett joined by the Jamaica Tourist Board’s regional director for UK and Europe, Elizabeth Fox.

As the destination heads for another record year for tourist arrivals the tourism minister said: “This year has been one of our most successful ever as increasing numbers continue to visit our beautiful island and experience the warmth and pride of the Jamaican people. From health & wellness; music; romance and gastronomy, there is a variety of offerings to suit every visitor. The support of our agents is really important to make sure that these factors and much more are being sold in the right way to their customers”.

The White Affair is open to all UK travel agents who log their bookings on jamaicarewards.co.uk
