Meet Santa in Lapland

Our top festive incentive each year is the chance to visit the big man himself, with amazing bespoke prize trips to meet Father Christmas in Lapland!

From underground grottos and reindeer-pulled sleigh rides to Elf School activities and private dinners with Santa, there’s no better way to bring a smile to your winners’ faces.

If your budget doesn’t quite stretch to Lapland, we’ve previously arranged festive trips to some of Britain’s best grottos, pantomimes and other winter attractions too!

Luxury Christmas Market Breaks

Europe is home to the world’s most magical Christmas markets, making it the perfect destination for a December incentive!

Whether it’s traditional favourites such as Vienna, Bruges and Hamburg to lesser known destinations like Zagreb and Trondheim, there’s nothing like a Christmas market to get your winners feeling festive.

We’ve got great December deals on luxury hotels, private tour guides to show guests the best winter sights, and a wealth of restaurant recommendations for hearty Christmas fare. Just pick a destination and we’ll get cracking!

New York at Christmas is one of the most magical prize destinations in the world.

Festive Break in London

With Mary Poppins Returns due out in cinemas this December, what could be better than a joyful jaunt to London?

From afternoon tea with Father Christmas at Hamleys to ice skating at Somerset House, from pantomime at the Palladium to personal shopping on Oxford Street, London offers everything you could possibly want in a destination for your Christmas prizes.

Christmas incentive trips don’t need to break the bank; a budget-stretching weekend break in London is always one of our most popular festive prizes.
