See How We Exceeded Their Goals


We really value our partnership with The World’s Greatest Vacations. The WGV mailing has been one of our most successful marketing initiatives this past year and has exceeded our expectations.

Paul Gauguin Cruises

The overall results to date from the current Spring WGV mailing are excellent…record level… strong ROI! You were right…conducting the match back against our reservations booked made total sense to validate this advertising…

The Breakers

One of the biggest challenges for marketers is finding new to brand customers at acceptable acquisition costs. When first presented the conversion rates and cost for World’s Greatest Vacations the numbers seemed too good to be true. The results were fantastic and it works over and over again. I highly recommend this direct marketing platform to any hospitality or travel company.

Did You Know? The World’s Greatest Vacations was founded in 1993 as Treasure Chest. More than 1,000 campaigns have successfully run though WGV. No other media guarantees actual bookings. Founder Richard Shane had 3,000 seizures for 22 years. Direct mail’s response rate in 1993 was 1/2 of one percent. Today, as high as nine percent. Direct mail’s response rate is greater than email. WGV’s experts and strategic advisors are available to tap into as part of the overall model. WGV partners get access to our partner, USNews content. Each season comes with 7+ months of digital media. At 10 cents unit, companies see a far greater response rate than direct mail costing 10x as much. Every year for 28 years, consumers have grown our market penetration. Accountability and passion to assist are our hallmarks. WGV is the deepest market penetration in travel. Billing can take place upon completion of the media hence, self-funding.
