Bang For Your Buck: Getting the Most Value Out of Destination Incentives & Meetings
Planning group travel - whether it’s an incentive for employees or destination meetings - can drain resources pretty quickly. For planners who don’t deal with the day-to-day fluctuations of the travel industry it can feel overwhelming. Add to that general uncertainty and questions (am I really getting the best price? Is it going to be lower if I wait another week?) and it becomes downright stressful. That’s where Carrousel Travel comes in.
Travel is our business. Let us handle the price negotiations and leverage our existing relationships within the business travel industry. And there’s no one more informed about how best to book incentive travel and meetings than Amy Beilke, Account Executive at Carrousel Travel:
“I will always provide the best value to my clients,” Amy says. So what does Amy recommend when it comes to destinations for incentive and meeting travel?
“When you compare pricing between Mexico and Caribbean, most of the time Mexico will have the best price and in some cases better product for that price.”
Incentive and Meeting Destination: Mexico
Mexico is one of the most popular vacation destinations for Americans. In 2017, over 35 million people traveled to the country to enjoy beautiful beaches, all-inclusive resorts, and more. Recent reports of criminal activity might have scared off some travelers, but overall, the country remains a safe option for businesses and families alike especially in tourist areas.
While Mexico didn’t invent the all-inclusive model (that honor goes to European Club Med resorts), they definitely do it well. High-end resorts dot the shorelines and have operated with a focus on providing five-star service for decades. Best of all? They’re all competing for your business. With the air volume into the country very high due to the demand, flights to major Mexican tourist areas are far more reasonable which helps with your air budget. Mexico hands-down provides the best value for your organization’s incentive and meeting travel.
