Avanti Destinations has launched a new microsite aimed at making it easier for travel agents to book pre- and post-cruise vacation options in Europe, Asia and Central and South America.

“The pre- and post-cruise options offered by tour operators provide agents and their clients a far wider range – and better pricing, as well as higher commissions – than those they can book directly with cruise lines,” said Harry Dalgaard, Avanti’s president and founder, in a written release. Avanti sells exclusively through travel agents.

Dalgaard also said that Avanti can tailor the pre- and post-cruise extensions to individual client needs, such as by incorporating transfers, sightseeing and local restaurants.

Travel Industry Exchange

The #1 Industry Event for Specialization | Oct. 9-11, 2018

Travel Industry Exchange is the leading one-to-one event featuring a product-focused conference, networking and entertainment. Top agents vie for coveted hosted positions to leverage valuable supplier content that will help improve personal growth and increase overall sales.

Avanti also sells commissionable net airfares that take advantage of stopovers and open-jaw flights.
