Upgrade Bonus


Get Paid to Upgrade
Earn 2% more on the WHOLE land portion of applicable packages! That’s an average of $100 per booking!

Sounds simple, right? But as with any Apple Leisure Group® Vacations agent program, there’s so much more in it for you than the name implies. Because an upgrade is always a bonus … we’re just taking it literally, with 2% additional commission on the ENTIRE hotel portion of the booking.

Get Paid to Upgrade is the latest Apple Leisure Group® Vacations exclusive program designed to provide travel agents with a competitive advantage you won’t see anywhere else. Advise them into an upgrade once, earn their trust forever.

How to Get Paid to Upgrade

The success of our travel partners and the satisfaction of your vacationers are uniquely tied together, and this program helps to ensure both: an incredible experience for them and additional earnings for you. Here’s how it works:

  • 1. Start a booking in VAX for anywhere in Mexico, the Caribbean, or Hawaii
  • 2. When browsing options, look for “Upgrade Bonus $ Available” in the center column that lists all Agent Value IDs
  • 4. Scroll down and until you see the room category/ies with the Agent Value ID that says “Upgrade Bonus $”
  • 5. Click “Select” and book!


• The 2% bonus commission is paid on the full hotel portion of the vacation - not the increased cost price of the upgrade; not the difference in pricing. The whole thing!
• Apple Leisure Group® Vacations has paid out over $1 million since it was launched with Funjet Vacations - a solid precedent for how invested we are in the growth of our partners.
• Upgraded room categories often come with upgraded perks and benefits. Just view the booking details or compare accommodations to see how they change from level to level.
• Valid for Flex Groups, Groups Your Way, and Group-Ease bookings for an average of $500 in additional earnings!
