Setting Objectives and Budgets

The first step in planning an incentive travel trip is to establish clear objectives and budgetary constraints. Define the purpose of the trip — whether it’s to reward sales targets, boost team morale, or foster employee loyalty. Determine the budget allocation per participant, factoring in all potential costs including accommodation, transportation, meals, activities, and entertainment.
