TRAVEL IMPRESSIONS REVAMPS 4th ANNUAL '31 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS'
BASED ON AGENT FEEDBACK; AWARDS OVER 60 PRIZES BEGINNING SEPT. 1

Earn up to five entries per booking from June 15 – Aug. 31

FARMINGDALE, NY (June 18, 2015) – Starting Sept. 1, Travel Impressions (www.travelimpressions.com) will once again reward agents with one or more daily trip prizes in the fourth incarnation of the leading operator's highly anticipated '31 Days of Giveaways' promotion. Agents will have more opportunities to win resort stays than ever before with over 60 prizes up for grabs, making this year's program the largest in its successful four-year history.

Entries will be based on bookings received June 15 – Aug 31, 2015 with valid travel dates from June 18, 2015 – April 30, 2016. Among other changes to the promotion for 2015, agents will have the option to pick their own grand prize.

Travel Impressions will reward the promotion's top-selling agent with a five-night stay for two including air and transfers at the resort of their choice with options at nine exceptional properties within three luxurious brands from which to select. The second- and third-highest volume booker will also get a five-night resort stay with their choice out of the remaining brands.

Two trips to Europe for a total of six nights each will be among the prizes awarded this year. Each trip will cover three destinations in one country with two nights spent in each city. One trip will feature Starwood accommodations in Greece, while the other provides a comprehensive experience of Italy with accommodations at Baglioni properties. Both include breakfast and other added values.

"As '31 Days' is our most popular annual flagship promotion now in its fourth year, we decided to ask our agent partners for feedback on improvements to help them engage with us even more this year," said Jeff Clarke, president of Travel Impressions. "One of their chief concerns was that three nights in Europe was insufficient so we doubled it to six nights. We also added the flexibility to choose from a selection of Grand Prizes," Clarke added.

Prize destinations span the continental U.S., Hawaii, Europe, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. Agents will earn entries based on the following criteria with the option to increase their odds of winning via longer stays or by booking one of the prize properties:

  • One (1) Entry: Book three (3) nights or more ay any property
  • Two (2) Entries: Book five (5) nights or more at any property
  • Three (3) Entries: Book three (3) nights or more at one of the prize properties
  • Four (4) Entries: Book five (5) nights or longer at one of the prize properties
  • PLUS, agents receive one (1) BONUS ENTRY for including Dedicated Vacation Flights on any qualified booking to select destinations throughout the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America (see http://www.travimp.com/DVF for flight schedules)
