As an independent broker, we have the great ability to offer our clients a truly unbiased opinion as to which carrier best suits their insurance needs. That is real value for our clients. However, because we offer different carriers to fit different situations, we sometimes spread our business across an array of companies.
While many carrier have incentive trips for top producers, sometimes we as agents pay a penalty for doing right by our clients by not placing enough premium with any one company to qualify for their trip.
Tidewater Does it Differently
At Tidewater, we give our agent partners point credits towards our yearly incentive trip for any products (other than Medicare Advantage and Part D plans) that they sell, regardless of the carrier.
Agents earn points for Medicare Supplement, life, annuity, cancer, critical illness, hospital indemnity, disability, and dental/vision/hearing business. This allows our brokers to feel good about offering the best possible solution to their clients, without feeling like they may miss out on exciting incentive trips!
Past Incentive Trips
Tidewater's past incentive trips have taken us to Las Vegas, Tulum, Mexico, St. Lucia, Costa Rica, Cabo San Lucas, Turks & Caicos, and Barbados.
Our most recent incentive trip to Aruba was scheduled for March 2020 but has been postponed until it is safe to travel. We look forward to joining our qualifying agents in paradise once it is safe to travel again.
Our 2021 Incentive Trip
Our upcoming 2021 incentive trip will take us back to the Caribbean, to beautiful Jamaica! Are you interested in joining us to soak up the sun and have some fun in Jamaica?
