Wikipedia describes travel incentives as:
“a reward subset of an incentive program, recognition program or a loyalty program, which is a business tool designed to change consumer behavior to improve profit, cash flow, employee engagement and customer engagement. It has been described as business travel that is designed to motivate or trigger action, as a reward for these actions from employees or business partners. This fosters loyalty and encourages the best talent for an organization.” Travel incentive. (2015, December 23). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia.

To that we add that travel incentives can be a powerful team building tool and an excellent way to retain a motivated and high-producing sales force.
