In celebration of the Canada-China Year of Tourism (CCYT), Ottawa Tourism is excited to be launching an exclusive incentive program for Canadian based Chinese Inbound Tour Operators. Operators who register for the Incentive Program by April 30, 2018 and provide incremental Ottawa room night business over their 2017 room night volume will receive a rebate per incremental actualized room night between April 1 and December 31, 2018. Rooms must be booked at Ottawa, Ontario hotels. See below for Terms and Conditions.
REGISTRATION OPENS APRIL 1, 2018
Terms and Conditions
The program is open to all Canadian-based Chinese inbound tour operators who are registered and in good standing with the Tourism Industry Association of Canada’s (TIAC’s) Canada-China Inbound Tour Operator Registration Program. Registered operators, who increase their 2018 volume of Ottawa booked room nights over 2017, will receive an incentive rebate per incremental actualized room night at any Ottawa hotels (click here for full list). Rooms must be booked between April 1 and December 31, 2018. Ottawa Tourism will pay the incentives after the operator has paid their account in full with the Ottawa hotels. Submitted tour operator booking data will undergo a verification process with the specified hotels before incentives are paid to the tour operator.
Ottawa Tourism reserves the right to end the Incentive Program at any time between April 1-December 31, 2018. Should this occur, all registered operators will be notified via email and all submitted incentive room night data will be honoured (verification pending). In any case where there is a discrepancy of actualized room nights between the operator and hotel, the hotel information will be used to calculate the incentive.
Ottawa Tourism will provide each operator with the incremental number of room night volume over 2017 at the end of 2018. Operators are required to confirm and adjust their 2018 actualized room night volume by January 10, 2019 with Ottawa Tourism. Tour operators must have their Ottawa hotel accounts paid in full to access the Ottawa Tourism incentive fund. Failure to complete these requirements may limit the room volume incentive to be paid to the operator. Ottawa Tourism will pay out the Inbound Tour Operator incentives once confirmation is received that accounts have been paid in full from the participating Ottawa hotels.
