San Diego, CA (October 10, 2011) — Travel To Go, a privately owned company specializing in affordable luxury vacation memberships, has launched a Facebook page as an added member benefit.
In an effort to continuously offer new member benefits, the Facebook page was launched in August 2011. According to Renée Wagner, Marketing Manager, the page was implemented to “establish a connection with members that was convenient for them and to provide more information. Most importantly, the page allows members to interact with the Travel To Go staff and enhance the dialogue between the two.” An added benefit is that members can interact not only with staff, but can share travel tips with fellow members.
Travel To Go members that access Facebook find even more promotions and deals. Wagner also noted that since the page was launched, all promotions are posted on Facebook first, including the extremely popular “Hot Weeks” which book quickly. Frequently, when last minute cancellations or “flash” deals come in, the deals are gone before an e-blast or website update can be completed. Travel To Go’s Facebook page allows deals to be viewed instantly by members. In addition, Facebook- only promotion codes are occasionally posted.
Benefits of utilizing Travel To Go’s Facebook page have already been realized. National Cruise Week took place from October 17-21, 2011. By viewing the photos, videos and cruise promotions that were posted prior to Cruise Week, members were afforded to opportunity to learn more at their leisure and share the information with their cruise mates. Once the campaign began, members were informed, knew what they wanted and were prepared to take advantage of cruise week specials. In another instance, one member, according to Wagner, posted a question about a destination. The posting was forwarded to a travel specialist and within an hour, the member’s vacation was confirmed and their dream vacation quickly became a reality.
Travel To Go is constantly developing new ways to add value to members via Facebook. Presently, a photo contest in which members can upload their photos and other members can vote on them is underway. This will allow for members to learn about the destinations first hand, start thinking about their next vacation and have a chance to win a grand prize for submitting their photos.
Travel To Go offers travel benefits and services to a loyal customer base of 50,000 members and is currently celebrating 21 years in the vacation and travel business. The company prides itself on its 5-Star service standards and the achievement of its miss to “Making Dreams Come True.” For more information, visit www.traveltogo.com or call Jeanette Bunn at 800-477-6331, ext. 108.
