May 4 kicks off Apple Vacations’ 11th Annual Travel Agent Appreciation Month.

How much does Apple Vacations love Travel Agents? Count the ways! And in honor of our 11th  Annual Travel Agent Appreciation Month, we are rewarding our Travel Agent friends! If you are an agent, make sure you check out the details on Apple Vacations Agent Café or ask your Regional Sales Manager.

If you are not an agent, Apple Vacations recommends when booking a vacation you “Ask an Agent” – for their expertise, connections, first-hand experience, knowledge and know-how!

Travel Agents offer invaluable assistance in booking your vacation. Agents are there to help you find the best price, handle any unexpected trip interruptions, and most importantly – they can make sure you are not only going on an Apple Vacation but the Apple Vacation that’s right for you!

Tell us – who is your favorite Travel Agent?

And if you don’t have one, find one near you!

As we say goodbye to baseball season, and the boys of summer – yes it is officially over! Apple Vacations looks back at our 2014 sports sponsorships.

We had a great time and want to thank our hotel partners and tourist boards for helping to promote Apple Vacations and their resorts and destinations while also treating our top accounts and staff.

You may have seen us in your local ballpark on the “Kiss Cam,” a sign in the stadium, caught us on TV, heard us on the radio or read a blog post on social media.

In 2014 we partnered with the St. Louis Cardinals,  Chicago White Sox, LA Angels and Philadelphia Phillies.

They are all important gateway markets for us.

Thanks to Palladium, Iberostar,  Dreams, the Dominican Republic, Palladium & Now for your support!
