Travel Gossip has launched a new travel agent rewards platform, called Big Agent Rewards.

Big Agent Rewards is free for agents to join and allows members to earn rewards for bookings logged on the platform.

Agents can earn cash or collect points to redeem against fam trips, free stays, experiences, gifts and more. Members also get priority access to free training and events, as well as competition alerts.

Suppliers who sign up to the platform can boost sales and increase agent loyalty through offering incentives, engage with top-selling agents and guarantee a bigger return on investment (ROI) in their travel trade marketing campaigns.

Big Agent Rewards is launching with seven properties in the US, Caribbean and the Mediterranean offering a wide range of incentives, including a £250 cash reward with Rentyl Resorts in Orlando, Florida.

Many more incentives are in the pipeline from leading tourism boards, hotel chains, cruise lines and other suppliers.

Travel Gossip Managing Director Bruce Martin said: “If anyone needs rewarding BIG, its travel agents and I’m delighted that Big Agent Rewards will enable more agents to earn from their hard work and loyalty.

“We’re also excited to be offering suppliers a new kind of smart B2B marketing which is focused on trackable results, all backed by the power of Travel Gossip’s UK trade reach on social media, email and web.”

Ian Scott – former UK Director of Dubai Tourism and Ajman Tourism – has joined Big Agent Rewards as Interim Business Development Manager to launch the platform to the travel trade.

Ian said: “I’m delighted to be helping Bruce and his team on what I think is one of the most exciting new businesses in the UK travel industry right now.

“Big Agent Rewards will offer a new sales opportunity for destinations, hotels, cruise lines, tour operators and attraction ticket sellers.”

Rentyl Resorts Director of Sales Shannon Serventi said: “We are so excited to launch this trade incentive to the UK market. Rentyl Resorts is committed to supporting travel agents in the UK, they are fundamental to our success. This is our way of showing our appreciation and saying thank you.”

Suzy Trott, Founder of hotel representation service SILVALINING said: “The launch of Big Agent Rewards is a great initiative and the team at SILVALINING is delighted to see its clients sign up to provide UK agents with the opportunity to earn more on their bookings.

“Agents have never been more important for sales. They provide consumers with expert advice and peace of mind when planning a holiday in the current climate.

“I’m a huge advocate for travel agents and we’re thrilled to be able to demonstrate a continued commitment via our clients new reward schemes.”

Greg Naylor, Director of Sales and Marketing at Harbor Club, another supplier that has already signed up to Big Agent Rewards, said: “We are delighted to bring this brand-new incentive to travel agents in the UK. It demonstrates our continued commitment to the UK trade and provides a huge thank you to all agents that continue to support the Harbor Club with bookings.”

Big Agent Rewards is the latest expansion of the Travel Gossip travel media portfolio, following the launch of Travel Gossip News in April 2021.
