Where are VAX Agents Sending Their Family Clients?

Everyone’s a little nosy, right? Wouldn’t you love to know the destinations your fellow VAX agents are thinking of for their clients? We recently polled VAX agents, asking them the top destinations they book for their family clients and now we want to share with you so you don’t have to keep wondering.

The top international destinations VAX agents’ family clients travel to are:

  • Mexico – 46%
  • Dominican Republic – 22%
  • Jamaica – 22%
  • Europe – 7%
  • Other – 3%
Let’s break it down a little more. What are some popular hotels in those destinations for VAX agents?

Royalton Riviera Cancun

Royalton Luxury Resorts does it right in Cancun. Their philosophy is to provide a unique experience by combining the spirit of each resort’s host community, luxury product and incredible attention to detail. The Royalton Riviera Cancun is a new generation all-inclusive hotel with great family amenities like an enormous splash park and supervised kids and teen clubs for the kids and a world-class spa for the parents.

Riu Montego Bay

RIU’s reputation in leisure travel cannot be beat. Overall, VAX agents love RIU but they especially love Riu Montego Bay, for obvious reasons. It’s close to downtown Montego Bay, putting visitors close to shopping, golfing and dining off the resort. On the resort, it’s got a playground, kids’ pool, supervised children’s activities, daily and nightly entertainment and a game room.

Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort

This retro-themed hotel puts visitors right onsite at Universal Orlando, so it couldn’t be easier for your clients to have a blast during the day at the park and get back to the resort to relax. Or have a pool party at the resort’s two massive pools, waterslide and lazy river! They can also bowl at the on-site bowling alley, play games at the arcade and grab quick meals at the food court. It’s easy to see why this resort is a popular pick for VAX agents and their family clients.

Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana

Hard Rock Hotels are made for fun and they accommodate the needs of any type of traveler, especially families. Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana features The Little Big Club, a year-round kids program that gives kids a rocking good time as they learn, sing, dance and dress up like their favorite characters. There’s even a character breakfast and Little Big Club Live Show! Basically, Hard Rock loves kids and wants to give them the time of their life.
