Hotel Getaway Incentives
We offer three kinds of hotel getaway products. Each reflects a different approach to delivering a hotel stay for your clients, customers, employees or channel partners.
How to develop the perfect hotel stay incentive product.
There are basically two ways to develop a winning, customized incentive product for your company:
- Start with your budget and review all the options that fit within that budget.
- Start by selecting the ideal combination or product features from the options below and we’ll promise a price that won’t change.
(Now here’s the secret… the perfect product actually comes from using both approaches simultaneously!)

The Anatomy of a Hotel Award
There are more than 58,000 hotels in the US alone that can be booked online. And we have access to every one of them. From multiple wholesale sources. Every one of them allows us to book a reservation for your clients and pre-pay room and tax charges for the entire stay.
Every one of these hotels has multiple attributes that can be sorted, selected and served up for booking online based upon (here comes the real secret) a customized “rules engine” that controls what hotel options to present in the booking path. It’s that simple (and so complicated that you have to see it work to really get it!)
So here are just some of the more important product attributes that you select when designing your custom hotel award:
Length of Stay
The number of nights entitled with the award
Traveling Party Size
Can be limited to 2 adults, or a maximum of 4 people, including at least one adult.
Where They Can Go
There are more than 7,000 discrete searchable locations in the program.
Luxury, Upscale, Midscale, Budget and several points in between.
The 'Travel Window'
How long do they have to use the award.
City-center hotel, all-suite property for families, boutique hotels. Spa resorts. Golf resorts. Roadside inns.
Quality Rating or Star Level
Anywhere from 2- to 5-stars, or any combination of stars.
Terms & Conditions
This is a catch-all for various factors that affect the cost of the award, including transferability, cancelability of reservations, and a host of others.
Which Hotel Brands are Included
The more the merrier, but this can be designed into the product and enforced in the booking process.
