Scenic Group has announced that U.S.-based travel agents will earn an extra 25,000 rewards points for every new booking made through February 28. The promotion applies to each of its three brands, Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours, Emerald Waterways and Scenic Eclipse.
Launched in 2018, Scenic Group’s rewards program grants one point for every two dollars spent. This excludes air components, taxes and non-commissionable products which form part of the booking. It also does not include any surcharge or service fees on payments made by credit card, charge card, or other non-cash forms of payment. The current bonus points promotion is in addition to whatever points agents earn from their bookings.
After their first booking, travel agents receive a welcome email from Scenic or Emerald Waterways Rewards with a password reset link and a unique Rewards Member ID. This ID must appear on all future bookings for agents to earn points. Travel agents can access their accounts at www.scenicrewards.com or www.emeraldwaterwaysrewards.com, where they may review their points status and browse the catalogue of products that they can redeem their points. This includes appliances, fitness and outdoor equipment, electronics, jewelry and fashion items, gift cards and food and wine items. Emerald Waterways Rewards points are transferrable to Scenic Rewards accounts, but not the other way around.
Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours offer five-star river cruises in Europe, southeast Asia, Russia and Egypt. This year it will launch the 228-guest Scenic Eclipse, with a sister ship expected to arrive in 2020. Its sister brand Emerald Waterways will begin sailing its eighth ship, the Emerald Harmony, in 2019.
