Proud to Represent...
hope you had a great Canada Day!!!
This is the time of the year many of us are taking some
time off and enjoying some vacation time. So what do you
like to do on your vacation? Do you like to read a good
book? Go on an adventure (like ziplining)? Sit out in the
sun on a beach? Visiting with family? Enjoy a new
restaurant for dinner? Do tell.
I'm a pool person myself. I like to find a good shady
spot and catch up on all of the magazines I'm normally too
busy to read. My favourite magzine is Esquire but I also
enjoy the trashy celebrity gossip rags like US Weekly, In
Touch and OK! What can I say? It's always good to know who
wore it best!! :)
Another favourite vacations pass-time is shopping. Are
you with me??? WooHoo!! Nothing like finding a good
BTW, you know who else likes to shop while on vacation?
Dixie!! I kid you not. On our recent vacation to Palm
Springs we took Dixie into PetSmart and as you can see
VIDEO she had a great time on her shopping spree.
Hey, this month I'm going to be all over Western Canada at
various functions (Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Red
Deer, Calgary, and Vancouver) so hopefully I'll see you?
Have a great month!!!

RRMembers Commission Booster Program is one of the
best incentive programs in the industry. If you're not a
member yet you're really missing out. The program is
designed to be user-friendly with no forms to fill out
and everything is done quickly online.
the features I like most about the RRMembers program is
that your cheque is generated and sent out to you within
30 days of your client's checkout and you don't have to
wait until you accumulate a certain amount of bookings.
Even just after ONE booking a cheque is sent to you.
question I hear a lot from travel agents is, "Do tour
operator bookings qualify?" Of course. Real Resorts
knows that most of your bookings are coming through tour
operators such as Westjet Vacations, Air Canada
Vacations and Thomas Cook. Real Resorts appreciates your
business and wants to reward you for it.
program is very generous. For example, a simple 7 night
booking to THE ROYAL Playa del Carmen will earn you a
minimum of $50US up to a maximum of $160US depending on
suite category and number of guests.
Size Isn't Everything, but...
face it, that the last thing people want to do on
holiday, is spend a lot of time in the hotel/condo.
