Dear Dave,

Hello and Happy Canada Day!!!Canada flag

How is your summer going so far? I hope you're having fun and you aren't working too too hard.

I think I mentioned before that we have a condo in Palm Springs, California. I love it there. Have you been? If not I highly recommend a vist.

A couple of weeks ago we made a quick trip down to escape all the rain in Vancouver. Back in the day Palm Springs was the home of MANY Hollywood stars such as Sinatra, Hepburn, Gable, Hope and many, many more. So one afternoon we decided to go on a self-guided tour of the stars homes and I brought my flip-cam for your viewing enjoyment.

If you're interesting in heading down to Palm Springs yourself please keep reading below for information about renting our condo.

Have a great month. If you need anything regarding Real Resorts please contact me and if you need anything for El Cid Resorts then please contact Dave.  Adios Amigos!!!

Chat with you soon,

Rewarding YOU!!!
The Best Travel Agent Incentives

Since this is typically a slower time for business, perhaps you're not as busy as you normally are? Well, this could be a perfect time for you to take a couple of minutes and sign-up for two of the BEST Travel Agent Incentive programs in the business. Do it now before the busy fall/winter bookings start.

Real Resorts: The program is called RRMembers Commission Booster and basically how it works is that for every booking you make (even booked through a tour operator) your clients receive a gift from you and you get a cheque mailed to you within 30 days of guest checking-out. No minimum bookings are required
and I have agents in my territory receiving very large cheques!

el cid logoEl Cid Resorts: The program is called El Cid Rewards and for every booking you accumulate points and you can then use those points to order cool merchandise and gift cards!!! Tour Operator bookings qualify and it is a great way to treat yourself or even start on your Christmas shopping early!

I know I mention the rewards programs in pretty much every newsletter and I'm sorry if I sound like a broken record, but I'm amazed how many agents haven't signed up yet. This is one of the perks of your job - sign up today to start rewarding yourself!!! :)
City of Joy
Real Resorts Press Trip

City of Joy logo
Real Resorts recently hosted a Press Trip and one of the places the journalists visited was the CITY OF JOY FOUNDATION in Cancun.

I also visited the City of Joy recently when I was in Cancun for Real Resorts sales meetings and it is an amazing place.

The City of Joy is an innovative complex of Homes and Centres, each of which cares for a vulnerable and underserved group of people. Each home or centre is operated by a specialist organization that shares the mission. The City of Joy is located on the outskirts of Cancun, in an area where the need for the programs is strong. The City of Joy helps more than 20,000 people each year, including children, the elderly, women, the sick, and families in extreme poverty.

Real Resorts is a proud supporter of this wonderful place. Real Resorts has also just launched a "voluntourism" program for guests who want to volunteer their time to help at the City of Joy.
