TravelBound is offering special savings on pre-and post-cruise stays in some of the most popular cruise ports around the world now through March during Wave Season.
Travel agents can help clients take advantage of savings in select ports while earning an additional 3 percent commission for European bookings, including destinations in both Western and Eastern Europe and Scandinavia (including Iceland); 2 percent more for bookings in Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and 1 percent bonus commission for bookings in the Americas, including Canada and the Caribbean.
TravelBound is also launching a two-part ‘WAVEinar’ education series to provide agents insights and sales tips to make the most of Wave Season for their clients.
Part one of the “How to Book the Perfect Pre- and Post-Cruise Package” WAVEinar will be held Tuesday, January 24 at 3 p.m. EST and will discuss choosing the right hotel for a client’s port of choice. The first presenter will be Alejandro DeJesus, virtual account manager at TravelBound. Travel agents can visit http://travelbound.gta-promotions.com/wave17/ to enroll.
Now through March, TravelBound’s Wave Season campaign will feature values and special offers on different major cruise ports each week. Beginning the week of January 18, travel agents will find special savings for hotels in Rome, Venice, Miami and New York such as 20 percent off a stay of two or more nights at Rome’s Residenza Antica hotel, and 15 percent off stays through 2017 at Venice’s Continental situated in the heart of Cannaregio.
Also available are offers in two of the largest cruise ports stateside, including 25 percent off four nights at the waterfront Intercontinental Miami and 20 percent off stays from April through August 31, 2017, at the Riu Plaza New York Times Square.
Upcoming weeks will include ports such as Barcelona, Athens and Ft. Lauderdale.
TravelBound also provides travel agents with sightseeing recommendations to enhance their clients’ pre- and post-stay experience. Sample sightseeing activities include Walks of Italy’s Cook, Dine and Drink in Rome with a local chef where clients will spend an evening learning how to make pasta in the comfort of the chef’s rooftop studio; and the Everglades Airboat Tour and Biscayne Sightseeing Cruise during which clients will visit the Everglades National Park and get up close views of alligators, turtles, lush vegetation, and more.
No minimum booking value is required; the extra commission is paid once clients have completed travel.
