This course is available only for North American travel agents.
Welcome - or, rather bonbini - to Aruba. The Aruba Certified Expert (ACE) program is designed from top to bottom to provide you with an interactive learning experience about one of the Caribbean's most dynamic destinations. Its goal is to provide you with in-depth knowledge on the full Aruba vacation experience and the confidence to pass on your new-found destination knowledge to your clients. Become an ACE today, and you can enjoy multiple benefits and rewards offered by the Aruba Tourism Authority:
- ACE Rewards Program: As an ACE agent, if you report your production via Recommend's Agent Transaction Monitor, you could be rewarded with quarterly regional VISA cash card incentives of $100, $250 or $500. Each month you are also eligible for $100 in VISA cash cards in a random drawing from all ACE agents who have reported any production that month.
Additionally, twice during the year we’ll award VISA cash cards in a random drawing from agents who have reported any production during the current year - $500 in July and $1000 in December. So even if you are not a large producer, by reporting your room night production, you still qualify for twice yearly random rewards.
Don’t forget to report your bookings! Production is based on booking date not travel date. Quarterly production rewards are done on the 15th of the month following the close of the quarter. You have up to that time to report any and all bookings made during the quarter to be eligible for the top producer prizes.
