MCALLEN, Texas, Aug. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- VIP Travel Consultants, a Texas based travel service provider, has launched a new travel rewards program, for travel bookings made on their VIPalma™ travel website. VIPalma™ Rewards by VIP Travel Consultants, rewards customers with points for all flight, hotel, car rental, and vacation package bookings made on both VIPalma.com and the VIPalma™ app. Unlike most travel sites, once a customer reaches at least 1,000 points, they can redeem these points for a cash back rebate, to use however they want, not just for travel.
Points earned are based on the type of travel booked, and amount spent. Flight bookings earn .5 points per dollar, Car Rentals earn 1 point per dollar, with Hotels and Vacation packages earning 2 points per dollar spent.
When a customer registers for VIPalma™ Rewards, they associate an email address with their account, this email address is then used at checkout on VIPalma.com or the VIPalma™ app to receive credit for the booking. Points are credited to the customer's account within 24 hours of the completion of their travel. This allows for any changes or cancellations.
Upon reaching the minimum redemption level of 1000 points ($10.00), customers may request a redemption, and will have a cash rebate processed within 24 hours, sent to the address listed on their account using USPS Priority Mail.
"As the cost of travel continues to rise, we feel it is important to put some of your hard earned money back where it belongs - your pocket," says Joshua Hill, President of VIPalma.com. "Points that can only be used for future travel are great if you travel frequently, but many of us need time to save for travel, particularly families, leaving traditional points sitting with no immediate value."
According to Mr. Hill, VIPalma™ Rewards was born from direct customer feedback, and the desire by travelers to get something back after feeling "nickel and dimed" by the additional fees airlines charge for basic services like checked baggage, and rising travel costs.
Travelers enrolled in VIPalma™ Rewards, will still earn frequent flyer miles within their airline loyalty program, as well as any cash back offered by their credit card company, allowing them to further compound their savings.
Customers may sign up for VIPalma™ Rewards for free by visiting the VIPalma™ website (www.vipalma.com), or from within the VIPalma™ travel booking app, available on both the Google Play store for Android devices, and the Apple Store, for Apple devices.
