Travel Bound Enhances Pre- / Post- Cruise Options in New 2012 Brochure

Travel Bound has launched its 2012 Pre- / Post-Cruise Brochure, which is designed to pass along to independent travel clients and lists examples of three-, four- and five-star hotels in a wide variety of port cities, along with sample sightseeing tours and shared and private transfers.

For 2012, Travel Bound has added Charleston, Antwerp, Arles, Basel, Bruges, Bucharest, Porto, Bangkok, Christchurch, Ho Chi Minh City and Wellington to its lineup of port cities. The brochure also offers commissionable sightseeing options, such as bicycle tours, cooking classes, whale-watching, scholar-led walking tours, surfing lessons, horseback riding and sky-diving, as well as customizable private sightseeing in cities like Buenos Aires, Dubrovnik, Marseille, Montevideo, Palermo and Shanghai.

“We’re seeing more and more agents booking pre- and post-cruise hotels, transfers and sightseeing,” notes Tom Buchberger, Travel Bound’s director of sales.  “It’s a smart way for agents to earn extra income – we pay commission on each component booked, even if it is only for one additional hotel night or one sightseeing tour.  Clients have a more relaxing vacation when they arrive a day or two before their cruise departs – or stay for an extra night after the cruise.“

The brochure does not list prices. Agents can visit for up-to-date rates. For groups of 10 or more, Travel Bound offers group travel quotes at 1-800-808-9547 or at [email protected].
