- Please send an email to the Key Resort Personal at the Resort. Asking them to put a not in your client’s room welcoming them to the resort. Helpful Tip: Let the Key Personal know a little bit about your clients. If they are celebrating a honeymoon/anniversary etc.
- Keep your clients up-to-date with flight changes (if you added flights to their packages) etc. Send a note to them a few days before they travel reminding them that you are here for their every need and how much fun they are going to have.
- This is entirely up to you and is not NOT REQUIRED but many agent send a gift to their client(s). The git can be small and as simple as a Net Float Swim Hammock for the pool (a two pack can be found on Amazon for a pack of 2 is around $20.00). Starbucks gift card for a coffee at the airport or even as big as a spa service package(of course depending on the cost of their trip and your commission).
- After they arrive back from their vacations, send a thank you note and hope they enjoyed their stay an if you need anything else and how we can book your next travel vacation. If you have the Advantaged Tess plan, the are lots of auto-emails that will be sent to your clients so that can eliminate those steps above.
