As any travel agent who has had the pleasure of visiting Costa Rica can attest, it is a country of diverse eco-systems with a wealth of natural resources just begging exploration and discovery. And as such the destination holds a high level of appeal to today’s savvy travelers who seek a more personal, custom-tailored experience that provides them with leisure travel that is meaningful and experiential. Costa Rica is the perfect choice for families, couples, adventure-seekers and nature lovers as well as discerning travelers looking for a rich eco-experience coupled with distinctive accommodations.
Visitors to Costa Rica have an opportunity to experience several diverse and popular tourist areas, each unique in both landscape and available activities. For your clients who want to see it all, the country is surprisingly accessible. Visitors can certainly stay at one hotel and venture out on day trips to the various attractions. But a more optimal way to maximize their time is to arrange a multi-region itinerary for them based on their personal preferences, where they can immerse themselves more deeply in the country’s multiplicity. Visitors can easily experience multiple regions in a week’s time. In fact, it is highly recommended that first-time visitors consider a multi-region vacation, staying in two or even three regions to get a true feel for the culture and the bio-diversity of the various eco-systems that exist in this amazing, yet compact country.
Vacation Express has simplified the multi-stay booking process with its new, exclusive dynamic packaging booking engine. Booking (or “building”) a multi-region vacation package for your clients is unbelievably simple – just select the preferred air schedule and fill in the transportation options, the hotel selections and any optional tours you want to include in each region. With the Vacation Express multi-region booking engine, you can easily quote a customized multi-stay vacation for your clients with just a few logically prompted strokes on your keyboard, combining short stays in up to seven regions.
In the multi-destination booking engine, resorts are grouped by region, not airport. All resorts are accessible from either airport (SJO or LIR). Tours and hotel service add-ons are bookable in the “shopping cart” area once the hotel(s)/transfers are selected and finalized. In addition to airport/hotel/airport transfers, your clients also have the option of taking advantage of shared or private transfers between the regions with knowledgeable driver/guides. Or they may opt to rent a car taking in all the sites along the way, at their own pace. In addition, you’ll find an extensive list of optional tours/activities available for pre-booking in each region. Vacation Express has made “building”, quoting and booking a customized Costa Rica multiple region vacation so efficient that agents shouldn’t hesitate for a minute to recommend this popular destination to their clients looking for something new.
As a travel professional, you want to educate and provide personalized service for every client using the most effective and efficient tools at your disposal. This is one of those “tools” that can help you do just that! Add to this a host of travel agent programs including “Freebie” hotel nights, cash bonuses with the “Agent Incentive Program”, the “Commission Stimulus Program” and more, and you have even more lucrative reasons to book your Costa Rica travel with VE.
