In a bid to increase business through the trade, Amadeus River Cruises has pledged to offer a series of special net rate deals on a number of its most popular cruises throughout 2015.

The company's UK director, Stuart Perl, said: "The river cruise market has been one of the success stories of the travel industry in the last few years, experiencing phenomenal year-on-year growth. We believe the trade has a vital role to play in this sector of the business and we are committed to supporting agents, to ensure that they are equipped with the tools to meet their customers’ requirements."

To launch its trade campaign, the operator has issued a special net rate of £675 per person on its eight-day Tulip Cruise departing April 4-11 on the 150-passenger Amadeus Brilliant, which takes in Keukenhof Flower Gardens on a cruise to Amsterdam, Volendam, Arnhem, Middleburg, Ghent, Antwerp, Kinderdijk and Utretch.

The company is also offering net rates on its excursion packages, where there’s the option of booking individual excursions with prices starting from £30 for a city tour, or selecting from one of three tailor-made tour programmes, with net prices ranging from £135 to £350.

Net prices for the excursions packages allow agents to increase margin and save the client 15% if booked prior to departure.

Included in the cruise price are transfers between Schiphol Airport or Amsterdam Central train station; seven-night, full-board cruise accommodation in an outside stateroom; wines, beer and soft drinks with dinner; Wi-Fi throughout; a Cocktail reception and welcome dinner; a captain’s dinner; all entertainment on board; complimentary bicycles on board; a Dutch folklore show; and two days in Amsterdam.
