One of our Pentravel stars, Julie Katopodis, gave us some feedback on the incentive trip she enjoyed in December 2018: cruising on board a luxury Uniworld river boat in France! We asked her how she managed to qualify for this incredible incentive experience.
Which Uniworld journey did you experience?
Parisian Royal Holiday, in Dec 2018
How did you qualify for this amazing trip?
I qualified for Club 85 – in which my commission average for the year was above 85,000. It is the top incentive at Pentravel, and a highly sought after one! It is also the one in which you can share with and take along your partner, so it was wonderful having my husband travel with me, and experience this incredible journey.
How do travel incentives motivate you to give of your best?
We sell so many exciting, interesting destinations, travel incentives give you the drive and determination to be able to experience these places yourself.
Tell us about your trip highlights?
France has always been very special to me, since I was a child, and going back there on this wonderful, luxurious journey reminded me why I love it so much! My highlights would be visiting the palaces and castles, steeped in so much culture and history, such as the Palace of Versailles. I may be a bit of a history and museum nerd!
Visiting these historical places is special, but on the excursions provided by Uniworld, we were really treated like VIP’s. We were given instant access, no queues, top class guides and door to door service. It felt like we didn’t need to do our own thinking for the entire week! On board the riverboat, the highlight was the impeccable, individual service given to us, and the food… wow! Top-quality French cuisine.
What’s next on your travel horizon?
At our year-end awards last year, I won a trip for 2 to Egypt for a week. This was for being the top supporter and seller for a supplier, and hence won this prize. Egypt has always fascinated me, and I hope to incorporate that week in Egypt with a trip to Europe during this year.
