Crystal Cruises is giving travel agents more time and more cruise product on which to earn travel rewards. The line is extending its popular “Sell Three, Sail Free” agent incentive into 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Travel professionals only have to sell three staterooms in a calendar year to enjoy a complimentary ultra-luxury cruise within that year for themselves and a guest.“Over and over, we’ve heard from agents that their most luxurious and coveted benefit is a free Crystal cruise,” says Eric Graves, Crystal's vice president, field sales.
The cruise reward applies to any voyage, except the World Cruise and its segments, based on Sell 3 inventory, and is confirmed 30-90 days prior to sailing.
Staterooms sold must be double occupancy, and agents are limited to one reward berth every two years. Guests of qualifying agents must share the winning agent’s stateroom.
In 2011 and to date in 2012, Crystal’s “Sell Three, Sail Free” program has awarded free cruises to more than 600 travel agents.
Crystal has detailed its itineraries into 2015, earlier than ever before. "From 2012 to 2015, agents have four different years of Crystal cruises to sell, which gives them quite a nice amount of time as trusted advisors to help plan their clients’ on-going worldwide travel," Graves said.
