Here are frequently asked questions about our Affinity Group Travel Program and about becoming a Vantage Group Leader.
It’s fun and easy to host a Affinity Group Travel Get Together. Make the event lively and informative! And be well prepared: Think ahead about what will get people excited. Inspire them with a themed event. Host a morning coffeeklatsch, wine-and-cheese tasting, or summer garden social. Feed them and they will come — we’ll even reimburse you up to $200 for food and beverages! Before your party, select a date and meeting spot that works for you, then send invitation emails to your lucky family and friends. Anyone who reserves a trip during the Get Together will receive $100 off the chosen departure. Contact a Vantage Group Representative in advance at 1-800- 994-6321 so you’re fully prepared.
Just get a group of 10 or more together from your Rotary Club, social group, philanthropic organization, church (or wherever!) and call us at 1-800-994-6321. Gather 10 full-paying travelers for your trip, and you travel FREE as the 11th! Our online Group Portfolio makes it a breeze to keep your trip details and traveler information organized. All you need is genuine enthusiasm and a desire to organize group members for an enjoyable vacation.
Of course! In fact, we'll do most of the "heavy lifting" for you. We'll help you select a Vantage trip and send you promotional materials via email to help you spread the word. Then, once the journey is planned, we'll handle the reservations and payments directly with each traveler.
No. You can make the arrangements for your group. Rest assured that your group will be well cared for by our Program Managers that accompany each tour.
You will receive a special group code. When your travelers reserve their journey, they can call our toll-free number, 1-800-322-6677 and provide their code. This ensures that you receive credit for each traveler, without having to handle payments from them.
Not at all. Vantage will handle all the details, from reservations to airline tickets to transfers. We'll even keep in touch with your group members through a series of pre-departure mailings to fill them in on all details of their journey and make sure they are well prepared.
Any traveler paying the Vantage double occupancy or single occupancy rate is a full-paying traveler.
Note that travelers who cancel or do not complete their trip do not count toward free trips or other group travel.
It depends on how many people you sign up. But the likelihood is that other travelers will accompany you.
If you decide to travel with your group, your free trip will appear as a credit to your account approximately 14 days prior to departure.
Just a few nominal fees, such as our optional Travel Protection Program, pre- or post-trip extensions, optional tours, and the like. Certain taxes and fees may also be applicable. If you choose to travel in a single room on your free trip, you will be charged the Single Supplement, or the difference between the double-occupancy and single-occupancy rates.
Yes! You'll continue to earn rewards based on the number of travelers you organize for the journey. For every 10 full-paying travelers you gather for your journey, the 11th person will earn a FREE trip. Gather 21 full-paying travelers, and the 22nd person will earn a FREE trip, and so on. There’s no limit to the FREE trips you can earn! Please remember that space is sometimes limited by the type of trip you select.
The quickest way to get your group members excited about your trip is to take advantage of Vantage’s online Group Portfolio. This easy-to-use tool helps you recruit travelers with ease and keeps all the details about your group members at your fingertips. First, create your very own web page for your group, complete with trip details (and your group’s logo, if you’d like). Then add the names of committed and potential travelers to your online Guest List. From the Group Portfolio, you can view your group members’ “Where to Next” Lists to find out where they want to go next, grow your Guest List, create a trip brochure that you can save to your desktop and email to Family & Friends, and more! Potential travelers can even visit your web page to view trip videos and brochures.
You can also refer potential travelers to the trip on this website; simply email them the website address that appears in the browser field at the top of the page. Alternately, you can write a letter to your group members and send each a Vantage brochure (supplied by us) with details about your trip. If you have a larger group of prospective travelers, we may be able to offer special promotional mailings on your behalf. Speak to a Vantage Group Sales Representative at 1-800-994-6321 to explore your options.
We will make every effort to schedule your group on the same flights from your home city. However, air routings are ultimately at the discretion of the airlines. While Vantage defines 8 or more affiliated travelers as a group, the airlines define a group as 8 or more people flying to and from the same airport who depart and return on the same date. If some members of your group take a pre- or post-trip extension, the airlines may or may not accommodate the group with the same flights. Cancellations or changes to your group size may also affect your group's ability to fly together.
