Diplomat Club Referral Program Terms & Conditions
Please note following conditions of Vantage’s referral program:
- Diplomat Club rewards are earned only for referring new Vantage travelers. Anyone you refer must be new to the Vantage mailing list, a first-time referred traveler, and cannot be a member of an affiliate group that arranges travel through Vantage. Diplomat Club referral rewards do not apply to travelers booked under Vantage’s Group Travel or Friends & Family programs. The referral credit cannot be used on priority bookings.
- To earn a free trip for referring eight travelers to Vantage, all eight must be new to the Vantage mailing list. In addition, each of the eight referrals must be added to the Vantage mailing list and travel within a one-year period of being referred to Vantage. The free trip is valued at up to $5,200 and may only be used toward a future trip. It may not be used towards a trip that you have already reserved. Alternatively, you may apply the amount as a credit toward a future Vantage trip of a higher value.
- Diplomat Club rewards are earned 14 business days after the new Vantage traveler departs on his or her first Vantage trip. Both the Diplomat Club member and the new Vantage Traveler earn rewards at the time the trip is taken, no matter when the new Vantage traveler departs: next year, five years from now, or ten years down the road.
- There is no limit to the cash and free travel you can earn. Even after earning a free trip, you’ll continue to earn $200 for each new referred traveler. Note that for the eighth traveler, the free trip is the reward; there is no cash reward.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are frequently asked questions about our Diplomat Club and about becoming a Vantage Diplomat.
Anyone who refers a friend to Vantage automatically becomes a member of the Diplomat Club referral program and is eligible to earn cash and free travel. It's our way of rewarding you for spreading the word about Vantage. If you've referred new travelers in the past, you're already a member.
It's easy to recruit a friend. Just tell people you know about Vantage Deluxe World Travel and have them provide your name and Customer Number when they reserve their first trip or when they sign up for our catalogs and emails. You'll earn your reward as soon as they depart their first trip. (Please allow 14 business days to process reward checks.)
Yes, they do! In fact, a get-together with a travel theme is one of the best ways to inspire and recruit friends and increase your rewards. Everyone loves to talk about travel, so a travel-themed party or gathering works best of all. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started planning today.
Absolutely not! Once you recruit a friend, each of you can travel whenever you want — and still share in the rewards. However, when you earn a free trip, it may only be used toward a future trip (not one that you have already reserved).
There are more ways to refer new travelers than you might think. It's surprisingly easy to bring up Vantage when chatting with a neighbor, an acquaintance at the gym, or someone you meet at a social gathering — even someone you bump into at the airport during your travels.
