Fred.\ Expeditions has produced a special guide to selling expeditions for agents. The guide, which is free to agents, includes useful information such as how to identify which kind of customers are potential expedition cruisers and how to encourage repeat business.
The company, which launched last month, offers a selection of polar expedition cruise product from seven well-known expedition cruise operators to act as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for agents. It is currently working with the following expedition operators: G Adventures, Hurtigruten, Lindblad Expeditions, Oceanwide Expeditions, Poseidon Expeditions, Quark Expeditions and Silversea Expeditions.
Geoff Ridgeon, head of cruise at Fred.\, said: “It's important that we support agents in selling expeditions as these can often be complicated itineraries and we have a dedicated team here who can help assist them in packaging expedition cruises so that they are as appealing as possible to their customers. We hope this guide is a start in this journey.”
