What are Incentive Travel Packages?

Posted On: October 28, 2015

For Sales, Marketing or Human Resources professionals a facet of your work may include hunting for and securing incentive travel packages for your employees. Incentive travel packages can look many ways and take various forms but the key is to discover a source that can create a comprehensive package that aligns with your company’s unique vision, goals and budget.

At Docherty we’ve had the pleasure of creating dynamic travel incentive programs crafted with your particular objectives in mind. Nothing is off-the-shelf because it can’t be! Your employees and your company ethos are unmatched which is why we create incentive travel packages uniquely suited to you.

We can design a travel incentive program that meets your budget, fulfills your sales objectives and effectively motivates people to work their hardest.

Working hard to reach one’s potential, achieving quotas, closing deals…these are always on the minds of sales teams. But studies have regularly shown that it is not only numbers or dollar signs that motivate, but the prospect of travel to a special destination that has a certain allure. Trips such as these are often the catalyst that push employees the extra mile. What if there were travel packages that made sense, offered amazing experiences and helped energize employees to do their best because they get to rest or bask in the glory of their achievement? The most motivating travel incentives are those with a twofold approach: aligned with a company’s ultimate objectives and planned to include meaningful, memorable experiences for the target audience.

Here are several examples of how an incentive travel package might look for your team.

Group Travel Incentive Reward to Croatia

This gem of Europe is more affordable than places like Paris or London (which can gobble up a travel budget very quickly). Beautiful olive groves dot the countryside where visitors can pick olives, watch the olive press process and sample the many varieties of olive oil complete with local aged cheeses and vintage wines. There are opportunities to explore many national parks, historic cities or just enjoy the unique fare of enchanting Croatia.

This package would include services such as:

  • The launch and management of an incentive program
  • Promotional marketing campaign
  • Registration
  • Flights
  • Accommodations
  • In-country travel arrangements
  • On site travel staff
  • Activities
  • International negotiations
  • Food
  • One-of-a-kind venues and events
  • More

Travel Incentive Package to St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands

A mid-winter getaway to warmth and sun is always welcome. Rewarding employees with an incentive trip to a tropical island isn’t far from reach. When planned with care and intention, an incentive package sending your crew to St. Thomas is more cost effective than you might think. St. Thomas offers so much for incentive groups of all sizes, for all budgets. There are of course unlimited water sports and beach lounging is always available, but there is also golfing, sport fishing, sailing, island-hopping, historic tours and much more.

An incentive travel package to St. Thomas includes things like:

  • Incentive program plan
  • Program implementation
  • Booking
  • Hotel sourcing
  • Contracts
  • Travel management
  • Team-building activities
  • Room gifts
  • More

Individual or Group Travel Reward to Quintana Roo

Quintana Roo is on the eastern part of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. Mostly known for the areas of Cozumel, Cancun, Isla Mujeres and Riviera Maya, there are many less-traveled and truly unique areas of Quintana Roo that don’t get the attention they deserve. Sending individuals to a location in (or close to) their own time zone that features beaches, warmth and adventure is a brilliant way to motivate and drive behavior. There are fascinating ruins to visit, gorgeous teal-blue waters to enjoy, excellent, up-scale restaurants and scuba diving on the second largest reef in the world among many other delights of this hidden gem.

Some of the ways Docherty Incentives & Meetings plans travel rewards:

  • Packing lists
  • Emergency contact list
  • Registration apps
  • Itinerary planning
  • Booking (hotels, activities, dinners)
  • Post-travel surveys
  • More

Being tasked with travel incentive program management is a huge, complicated undertaking to add to your already full plate—with Docherty Incentives & Meetings we create incentive travel packages that are on budget, motivate employees and customers and, in the end, make you the hero.
