To kick start the summer, Voyages of Discovery and its sister company Swan Hellenic have launched a new sales promotion available on all new bookings made between 3 April and 17April 2012. Agents must simply confirm a new Voyages of Discovery ‘Summer 2012 Sale’ or a Swan Hellenic ‘2012 Special guarantee fares’ cruise to earn high street shopping vouchers.
For multiple bookings the amount increases, starting at £10 for one new cruise booking, rising to £25 for the second and £40 for the third . Agents can bank more vouchers for their shopping spree by confirming more bookings as each booking results in another voucher and therefore the more bookings you make the more vouchers you will bank.
