Want to run a Travel Incentives and Rewards Programme but don't know the right destinations? These eight are fantastic starting points.
Nothing beats a holiday - except a holiday from a workplace Travel Incentives and Rewards Programme. With an ever-increasing number of millennials in the workforce whose lifestyle preferences are oriented around travel, there's never been a better time to implement such a programme. You motivate employees and in turn, they get to travel the world as a reward.
But what are the best Travel Incentives and Rewards Programme destinations? We have six here that are all excellent starting points.
1) Tenerife, Spain
Statista notes that in 2017, outbound UK residents visited Spain nearly twice as much as any other country (France was in second place). Of all the places to send people on their Travel Incentives and Rewards Programme, Tenerife might just be the most fun.
It has the perfect balance of tranquil luxury and club-based revelry to satisfy employees no matter their lifestyle, all from an idyllic archipelago setting in the Canary Islands.
2) Berlin, Germany
For millennial staff who love music and socialising or those who don't want to spend a fortune on travel expenses, Berlin is an evergreen choice of destination. From the secretive and endless halls of the Berghain to relaxing bike rides through the former Berlin Templehof Airport site, there is activity both serene and stimulating around every corner.
3) Dublin, Ireland
For a dash of classic heritage and hearty haute cuisine, Dublin ticks all the boxes. Younger employees taking their Travel Incentives and Rewards Programme will love the sense of community in the city's nightlife, while those looking for a more subdued trip abroad will find centuries of history mere minutes from their hotel or AirBnB.
4) The Amalfi Coast, Italy
As the third most popular overseas destination for UK travellers (via Statista), Italy will always be an appealing choice. And where better to visit than the Amalfi Coast?
As sheer, stunning rock faces plunge into the gorgeous ocean below, employees will live a life of luxury walking from wine bar to marine reserve in a heartbeat. The only drawback of having the Amalfi Coast as a Travel Incentives and Rewards Programme destination is that your employees may not want to come back!
5) Mljet Island, Croatia
For a more secluded (but infinitely more calming) Travel Incentives and Rewards Programme visit, the islands off the coast of Croatia have a strong allure. Classically renowned as Odysseus' site of entrapment for seven years, visitors may find they're similarly drawn to the heavily-forested island and pristine ocean surrounds.
6) Mykonos, Greece
Deemed the "glamour island of Greece" by Lonely Planet, Mykonos is home to world-class oceanside dining with a nightlife to match. Yacht cruises, Dionysus-themed tours and child-friendly cruises await when your employees have this island as their Travel Incentives and Rewards Programme destination.
7) The Algarve, Portugal
Named the most affordable travel destination for UK residents by The Guardian, the Algarve is nonetheless a pristine choice for a Travel Incentives and Rewards Programme. From sand castles to stone ones, endless beaches to yacht trips around Vilamoura, travellers can live out their wildest dreams without breaking the bank.
8) Bali, Indonesia
For employees who want to go a bit farther abroad while keeping a sensible budget, Bali offers the perfect Travel Incentives and Rewards Programme destination. Typically a popular destination for people heading out of Australia, Bali offers some of the world's best resorts, a thriving local nightlife and access to a massive number of secluded islands and beaches.
It's a perfect blend of everything that makes a holiday great, and another destination to make The Guardian's list of affordable getaways.
