ArubaThe Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) and the Aruba Hotel & Tourism Association (AHATA) are pleased to announce their recognition for travel professionals this year through a celebration of Travel Agent Months (TRAM), taking place now through December 15, 2009.


The TRAM program is designed to give participants the opportunity to experience Aruba, the island of 90,000 friends you haven’t met yet, and to help them better sell the destination to vacationers.


TRAMS are open to travel agents and Aruba Certified Experts (ACE) agents who are qualified for eligibility. Agents who participate in Aruba’s TRAM program will enjoy multiple nights at an assortment of hotels and resorts island-wide. Many of Aruba’s hotels have recently undergone renovations to offer visitors a new level of elegance and sophistication in the Caribbean.


The TRAM program allows agents to visit Aruba with a companion and consists of three offerings (based on availability and on European Plan pricing for room only and no breakfast unless otherwise noted) including a maximum of 6 nights (3 at a high-rise hotel, 3 at a low-rise hotel) at a fixed cost of $390 for travel agents, and ACE agents at $270 and a minimum of 4 nights (2 at a high-rise hotel, 2 at a low-rise hotel) at a fixed cost of $260 for travel agents, and ACE agents at $180.


Those traveling on charter flights may stay up to 7 nights (3 nights at a high-rise hotel, 4 nights at a low-rise hotel or vice versa) for a fixed cost of $455 for travel agents, and ACE agents at $315.


Complimentary roundtrip ground transfers for visiting agents and their companions are provided courtesy of De Palm Tours upon arrival and departure in Aruba. Air travel is not included.


Aruba’s valued ACE agents receive the added bonus of discounts when signing up for the TRAM program. ACE agents are Aruba’s destination specialists and the island is dedicated to continuing to educate and nurture this group of loyal, enthusiastic and productive travel providers by offering a variety of benefits like cash back bonuses, marketing support, and more.
