Scenic Group Extends Advance Pay Commission Through 2023

Scenic Group USA unveiled its “Advance Pay Commission Program” on July 1, 2022; the program will now be extended through all of 2023. The benefit offers the company’s travel advisors a chance to enjoy early receipt of their commissions.

“Doing right by our valued travel partners is what we strive to do at The Scenic Group,” said Ann Chamberlin, VP Sales, Scenic Group USA. “That includes paying commissions as soon as possible, and through our ‘Advance Pay Commission Program’ this means within 21 days of final payment being received for travel agencies enrolled in the program. It’s an easy win-win as guests receive additional savings and travel advisors get their commissions much earlier. There are no departure caveats and it’s applicable on both Scenic Luxury Cruises and Emerald Cruises river and ocean products.”

Agency owners, whether independent or host, can participate in the “Advance Commission Program” by registering with Scenic Group USA (, after which they will receive an enrollment confirmation within five business days. Eligible bookings must be on sailings with departures at least six months out from booking date. Commissions are paid within 21 days of receiving full payment, which must be made at least six months before departure. This incentive also benefits clients, as they will be eligible for pay-in-full savings offered by both Scenic and Emerald Cruises. Travel advisors can reach out to their Scenic Group regional sales directors with questions or for assistance.

Scenic Group includes Emerald Cruises, Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours, and Mayflower Cruises & Tours.
