Top Ten Incentive Trip Destinations for 2024

By The Event Book on January 5th, 2024

The way in which we work has changed meaning that not everyone is always in the office, and it can be a challenge to motivate your team when you do not see them all the time, and even harder to promote a team environment. Incentive trips are a tried and tested method to reward and motivate your teams both before and after the event as your teams will be talking about who is going to be the lucky ones to win a place on the trip. 

  • Reward and Recognition 
  • Employee motivation 
  • Builds Loyalty 
  • Increases communication and productivity
  • Improves creativity and ideation 
  • Great for team morale and bonding
  • An opportunity to get to know your team better 
  • Staff feel more relaxed and at ease 
  • Creates buzz 
  • What is incentive travel and how can it work for your business? 

Incentive travel is getting your team out of the office and rewarding them with a few days away somewhere special that they would not normally go alone. It can also be used for group conferences and AGMs, and board meetings. The event book can arrange everything for you from flights to securing the perfect hotels, complete with fun and informal activities when you get to your destination. We provide you with a fee that covers everything so you and your guests only need to bring your bags and passport! You will only need spending money for those shopping excursions ( if you choose to include one of course). 

What are the benefits of group travel & an incentive program, 

Builds stronger relationships for you and your team and makes your employees feel valued. Reward and recognise your staff. 

It motivates them and the rest of the team, who doesn’t love going on holiday? 

Who is it for? 

Any corporate  company that what’s to motivate their team or treat their clients

We can work with smaller groups from 10 guests, up to 250 guests 

How much does it cost?

That’s entirely up to you as the organiser. Let us know what budget you are working towards and we will work our magic with our suppliers. On average a 3-day trip to a 5-star resort with excursions, meals, and transport starts from around £900 + vat per person 

How do I go about organising this?  

We offer a full consultation service. The Event Book team finds out what’s important to you, what your goals are, and who will be attending the trip. We suggest 3-5 destinations giving you an idea of what kind of activities are available at each location 


Why We Love It

This unique island off the coast of Italy boasts 7,000 years of history ready to be explored. From its architecture to the island scenery, its honey-coloured stone creates an amazing backdrop for any incentive trip.

From luxurious resorts like the Intercontinental Malta to the Westin Dragonara Resort, Malta, there are quite a few locations to review for your guests.

Getting There

Part of the European Union, Malta, is a unique destination that is within easy travel reach for guests travelling from eastern US and Europe. Most airlines servicing major European cities have connecting flights to Malta International Airport.

When to Go

The best time of year to enjoy Malta is April through June when the weather is mostly sunny, and the temperatures are beginning to get warm and guests start heading to the beach. This is also the best time to beat the crowds during tourist season, which lasts from June through September#

There are lots of things to do here too we visited a stunning banana plantation, which was so much fun, I tried banana wine & beer and learned about how bananas are harvested, which was really interesting. You can then have lunch in the middle of the plantation, with lots of banana-based produce, which really Makes for a great experience. Your guests are then given their very own Banana plant to grow at home. We then had the opportunity to visit a horse sanctuary, and hosted a mindfulness session with a horse whisper!
