Contiki Holidays Renews All Access Program for Travel Agents

Rock Star-Themed Training Program Rewards Agents With Cash Bonuses and European Vacations

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - Contiki Holidays, the industry leader in designed vacations for 18- to 35-year-olds, announced the renewal of its highly successful All Access Program. The incentive-laden program "discovers" agents who want to sing the Contiki song and trains them to develop their sound and audience. Beyond working with well-established agents who already specialize in the 18-35 demographic, Contiki is committed to developing agents who want to extend their earning power by adding students and young professionals to their portfolio. As a key component of the All Access Program, all registered agents will work directly with a Contiki Sales Manager for hands-on training on how to cultivate this huge audience and create an effective action plan designed to convert.

In addition to opening up a vast market, Contiki sweetens the pot with numerous incentives throughout each level of the All Access Program. Travel agents begin to earn bonuses with their first passenger booked and reach "rock star" status and treatment when a 20th passenger has been booked. The five phases of achievement are as follows:

--  Phase 1 --  the agent receives an All Access Plaque and $50 American
    Express Gift Certificate
--  Phase 2 -- the agent receives a $100 American Express Gift Certificate
--  Phase 3 -- the agent receives a $250 American Express Gift Certificate
--  Phase 4 -- the agent receives a paid open-age FAM trip to Italy (land
--  Phase 5 -- the agent receives a paid open-age FAM trip to Italy AND
    roundtrip airfare

"The inaugural launch of the All Access Program last year saw agents achieve an aggregate increase of 132% on their Contiki bookings against the previous year. We are thrilled with the success of this mutually beneficial program and look for much greater results heading into 2010," said Contiki's President, Greg "Fish" Fischbein. "We are 100% invested in teaching agents how to reach this demographic and sell them today and for many years to come."

Contiki's All Access Program is intense -- no posers, groupies or back-up singers need apply -- this is for agents that want to make the numbers dance! The "audition" begins with a mandatory webinar Wednesday, October 21st at 9AM PST/12 PM EST.
