Sunsational Affiliates-Frequently Asked Questions

Who can join Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates?
We are very selective and look for beach vacation specialty agents with experience with VAX Vacation Access and/or the Apple Vacations Online system. We want to be affiliated with high energy, positive travel professionals. Experience with Destination Weddings and Groups is also a big plus.

What is the cost to join Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates?
There is a non-refundable fee of $199 upon approval of your application. There is an annual re-activation fee of $100. The initial fee covers set-up, your first order of business cards and 150 customized $50 off Travel Certificates.

Can I be a member of another organization or affiliated with another travel agency?

No. Multiple affiliations are not allowed.

What is the process for me to join Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates?
Joining Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates is easy! Call us at 877-404-4228 to get started. Once we discuss your background, interests, receive your references, and determine that there is a fit, you will receive an affiliate agreement with 3 business days. Once signed, it takes about 7 business days to create your e-mail account, order business and get you set up to book in VAX and the other supplier systems.

Why do I have to provide references?

This is an important way for us to ensure that the individuals that join our group are in strong standing with their clients and suppliers. Three references must be provided with two coming from existing clients and one from a supplier.

When are my commissions paid?
Individual commissions received in the calendar month will be paid to you by check on the 15th and 30th of the month.

How does Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates know which bookings are mine when my clients book through the Sunsational Beach Vacations website?
If you have a client that you know booked their trip online, please alert us via e-mail. In addition, at the time of booking, a thank you message is generated to each client and they are asked; “Prior to booking your trip online, did you receive advice or any service from a Sunsational Vacation Specialist? If so, who? Finally, each month, a list of the clients who booked online will be shared among the affiliates. If someone on the list is your client, all you will need to do is indicate that.

Can I keep my agency name when I become a Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates agent?
Yes and No. We just require that you use the Sunsational Beach Vacation name as a part of your business name and the proper e-mail address.  This important as the business name needs matches the website, the client invoices, documents and the supplier profiles.

Can I use the Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates name in advertising and communications to consumers?
Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates members may use the Sunsational Beach Vacations logo or name in consumer-directed marketing. You must, however, represent yourself as an independent affiliate of Sunsational Beach Vacations in all client and supplier interactions.  

Do you have access to a GDS to book and issue airline tickets?

At this time, airline tickets are not a major factor in our business and we do not subscribe to a GDS. If at some point, the need is great enough, we would consider it. Right now, however, the efficiency and profitability is in selling vacation packages.

Do you provide Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance?
Sunsational Beach Vacations carries insurance to cover E &O issues. As you are an independent contractor, you should have your own coverage to ensure you are protected on all of your travel bookings. We highly recommend our affiliates obtain Errors and Omissions insurance in their name for their personal protection. However, E & O insurance is not a requirement to join Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates.

What Do Our Clients Have to Say? Here's Some Feedback We Recently Received:

Destination: Punta Cana
Resort: Now Larimar

Freddie Macalus, our travel agent was amazing! He did a wonderful job helping us not only determine the best location for our destination wedding, but he also helped work with us hand in hand with the wedding planner at the resort to ensure our day went off without a hitch. Most people say that something will go wrong the day of your wedding, but we can say that was truly not the case. Freddie also did an awesome job working with all 40 of our traveling guests in booking their trips, which was no easy task. We had a lot of people traveling from different states and for different durations and the feedback we got from everyone was that Freddie was great in providing them with options and helping them through all their bookings.

Can't say enough great things about Freddie Macalus and Sunsational Beach Vacations!!!! Highly recommend this company and this travel agent to anyone looking to book a trip or a destination wedding!

Destination: Riviera Maya, MX
Resort: Secrets Silversands

We had such a great time at the Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun. I also was very happy that I got to work with you to coordinate the group travel event for us and all of our guests. You were super nice, always helpful, and willing to listen to all of my questions! I always felt like you were available to talk and discuss things and followed up with responses to my questions very rapidly. I had positive feedback from my guests that you were very nice and easy to work with. I would certainly work with you again on travel arrangements!

Destination: Punta Cana
Resort: Breathless

We all had an AMAZING time at Breathless! The hotel was great, food was actually a lot better than I expected, drinks and staff were awesome as well. I think how lively the resort was worked out perfect for all ten of us who wanted to party and celebrate the boys’ 30th birthday. We were very satisfied with your recommendation and will certainly be using you in the future for our next vacation.

Thanks again for all of your help!—I wish we were still on the beach!

Destination: Riviera Maya, MX
Resort: El Dorado Casitas Royale, By Karisma

What an amazing trip you planned for us. It was everything we wanted and more!!! The hotel was amazing, the food was spectacular, and the service was impeccable. We truly lived like royalty. Makes coming back to the real world quite a bummer. We've already begun telling people about the property and referring them to contact you.
We would love to look into a trip around the same time next year.
Again, thank you for making this trip so fantastic and easy to put together.

Nothing but smiles here and we are 1000% (that's not a typo ) satisfied with you and everything involved with the trip.

Thanks again!!

"My husband and I decided to get married in Mexico at Iberostar Grand over Labor Day weekend. It was a large destination wedding as we had 130 guests traveling. Tom and his group did a phenomenal job of coordinating everyone's accommodations, travel plans and transportation. As far as I know, there was not one guest that had any difficulty with their trip. Everyone arrived safely and on time! Tom made himself available for discussion at all hours throughout the planning process and was never difficult to reach. He was extremely knowledgable about the area we were traveling to and worked with the people at Iberostar to provide all of our guests with the getaway they deserved. We will use Tom over and over again for our future group travels and recommend him to anyone getting married :)"

"Tom helped us book our engagement trip. We then needed to discuss wedding stuff. After much debate and family discussions, Deanna and I decided to do a destination wedding in Mexico, and decided that we had such success with Tom helping just us two, that we would love to use him again. He was extremely helpful in getting everything organized for us. From helping friends and relatives book flights, nights stays, discount programs, transfers to and from the airport and working in close connection with Apple to make sure everybody arrived safe and sound. To say that we were beyond happy and pleased would be an understatement. EVERYTHING was perfect, flawless and extremely stress free. Deanna and I want to thank Tom for everything to make our trips so wonderful!!! He has been a part of our engagement, wedding/honeymoon and hopefully trips here in the near future. I highly recommend using his services."
