Eligible Dealers: All General Motors dealerships that are enrolled as a GM Protection Dealer in the USA throughout the program period are eligible.
Eligible Participants: This incentive trip is offered to dealer principals/owners . Winning dealers have the option to designate an alternate attendee (General Manager level or higher) from their dealership to go in their place. Individual participants of the winning dealership must be employees of that winning dealership at the time of travel. A dealership must be enrolled with GM Protection and meet the qualification criteria during the program period to be considered for the travel award.
Termination of Dealer Agreement: Dealerships that terminate their GM Protection enrollment during the program period are not eligible to participate in the program or receive awards.
Dealer Change: The GM Protection Platinum Elite contest program is BAC-based. A new BAC will be treated as a new dealership , even if it is an ownership change, and will be subject to the same rules as any other new dealership.
Dealerships are divided into tiers based on GM tiers
Winners will be notified by Aug. 15, 2024.
In the event of a tie, contract penetration will be used as a tiebreaker, with the higher penetration winning. Penetration will be determined as follows and carried to four decimal places, if necessary:
Total GM Protection contracts sold on new and used vehicles during the program period ÷
Total new retail deliveries during the program period = Contract penetration.
In the event that no dealership meets the minimum qualifiers, the trips will be awarded by GM Protection. GM Protection reserves the right to award additional trips at its own discretion.
