Tiare News – March 2014

Tahiti Tiare Program®

We are excited to announce and unveil our new tiered Tahiti Tiare Program®.

As you know, until now, one of the requirements to become a Certified Tahiti Specialist® was to submit a minimum of four (4) bookings per year based on certification date.
This will change as of April 1st, 2014 and the Tahiti Tiare Program® will become a tiered program with different levels of Certified Tahiti Specialists®. The program will take into consideration gross revenue and no longer number of bookings.
In order to become a Certified Tahiti Specialist® (and remain certified), Travel Advisors will have to produce a minimum of $30,000 in Tahiti bookings per year based on a calendar year (January 1st, to December 31st). They will continue submitting their bookings in the Travel Trade Center and total package price will become essential.
The attached document outlines the updated requirements to become a Certified Tahiti Specialist® as well as the different levels and the benefits and incentive for each level.
We know this will require some adjustments for everyone, but we believe that this will be beneficial to all of us, especially Travel Advisors who actively sell our beautiful destination.
Travel Advisors can enter their bookings as they make them, or enter them all at once by the end of the year. There will be the possibility to upload a yearly sales report for Advisors who work closely with a preferred Tour Operator.
Travel Trade Center and E-Learning
The Travel Trade Center is the dedicated Travel Advisors’ section where agents can access information on the destination. 

The E-Learning Program (Tahiti Tiare Program®) is the destination’s specialist program for Travel Advisors wishing to get an in-depth training on the Islands of Tahiti and wish to become Certified Tahiti Specialists®.
The main enhancements to both include:
  • One point of entry for both the Travel Trade Center and the Tahiti Tiare Program all under: http://tahititiareagent.com/
  • Simplified registration process for the Travel Trade Center and the Tahiti Tiare Program®
  • A new online destination presentation that can be downloaded step by step and viewed at one’s own pace
  • An updated and enhanced online exam
  • Updated destination information
  • And available soon, a variety of fact sheets and cheat sheets about the islands
