Cruise & Maritime Voyages has seen booking levels through travel agents double for September since it introduced a new commission structure.
The cruise line has now extended its 1% extra commission for online bookings until 31 October, for bookings taken on cruises departing from December 2011 to October 2012. Its 25% discount on full fares has also been extended to 31October.
“With clients returning from this year’s cruise holiday and the media focus of National Cruise Week, many agents have been able to take full advantage of our special commission earnings of up to16%,” said Chris Coates, commercial director at CMV. “We are delighted with the increase in trade sales and the positive support we are receiving from travel agents”.
