Apple Vacations specializes in trips to popular destinations like Cancun, Punta Cana, the Bahamas, Costa Rica, Panama, Hawaii, among others.

The company has been in business for almost 40 years, and it works hard to provide vacations that are high in value but reasonable in price. They provide great service, convenience, and value.
Apple Vacations works hard to create the perfect "beginning-to-end" vacation experience. Customers are met by Apple Representatives at the departure airport. Once they arrive at their destination, an Apple Vacations Resort Representative will greet them outside of the airport and guide customers to their hotel transfer. Representatives offer welcome briefings and have desk hours at most hotels so that customers can easily ask questions and confirm information. Representatives are provided by Amstar DMC, which is an independent destination management company.
With Apple Vacations you can be assured that your clients will have a hassle free, quality assured vacation. The company regularly surveys its customers on the quality and service level of hotels. These hotels are rated solely on the feedback off customers. This level of care ensures that more than 70% of Apple Vacationers are repeat customers.
Apple Vacations also offers Value Plus features. This ensures that customers get more than what they pay for. By working with their hotel partners, the company is able to offer extra values to the vacation package. These features include items such as free room upgrades, free food and drink credits, free breakfasts, discounted golf fees, free scuba diving, and much, much more. These additional perks help keep customers satisfied and ensure that you're giving your client the very best deal available.
Included in an Apple Vacation is roundtrip airfare, baggage handling, resort transfers to and from the destination's airport, services of an Apple Representative in-resort, hotel accommodations, taxes and gratuities. With all-inclusive packages all meals, drinks, gratuities, entertainment and some water sports are included as well. Do take note that airport and hotel transfers are not included in Puerto Rico. In Europe, hotel transfers, baggage handling, and services of an Apple Representative at the hotel are not included.
