Dear Travel Agent Partners,

The holidays are upon us! From the Vacation Express family to yours, we hope they are warm, welcoming and full of great memories.

Even though Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales have ended, we have continuously great deals for the rest of the season. Right down to the new year, you will find incredible travel deals on our website; but if your clients are truly looking for the most memorable gift of all, our 2017 escorted tours to Cuba are already on sale! Keep in mind that booking during the holiday season is a great way to get those last few passengers you may need to qualify for Pepe Club in 2017!

Negotiating the best deals for you and your clients isn’t the only thing we’ve been up to lately. We had the pleasure of seeing many of you at our trade shows; they have been such a fantastic way to connect with you on a personal level as well as share what to expect from us in 2017. If you haven’t yet been to one of our shows, visit the VE Events link on the left and register as soon as possible.

One of the things we are most excited about in 2017 is the introduction of our exclusive non-stop flights flying from Detroit to Punta Cana and Grand Bahama Island, as well as to Cancun from nearby Windsor, Canada. Flights to Cancun will begin in December, so your clients can immediately take advantage of the Caribbean sun when the first snowstorm hits.

We all know that with the winter weather comes the winter rush for the tropics, so make the most of your bookings this season so you can earn free flights and hotel stays with our Book 5, Fly Free and Freebies programs. Possibly even more enticing this time of year is taking advantage of our Express Cash program, as we could all use a little extra cash before the holidays!

Speaking of cash, don’t forget; we’ve made it even easier for you to receive your commissions with our new Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) program. If your agency has not yet signed up to receive weekly electronic payments, have your agency owner email us at

Happy Holidays!
