Hello and Happy Canada Day!!!
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.

The Best Travel
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.
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
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
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

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.
