Travel agents looking for a host agency should know that Cruises Inc. is offering 90 percent off the sign-up fee (that's $49) through December 15 for agents who generated $15,000 or more in commissions within the past year. The standard sign-up fee is $495.
Complementing the discount, Cruises Inc. is rolling out a new virtual training program, which agents can quickly get up to speed on. Cruises Inc. also does not charge agents a monthly affiliation fee. A background check is required of all agents, which Cruises Inc. pays for.
