Regent Seven Seas Cruises is launching a UK trade awareness campaign highlighting the earning potential for travel partners when their customers book their next cruise whilst sailing.

The campaign features high-profile executives from the cruise travel trade and the line is also giving away an all-inclusive cruise to one lucky travel partner. When sailing, guests have access to special offers and exclusive savings on a variety of cruises.

If a guest chooses to book onboard, the reservation is automatically passed back to the original travel agent booker to process, who receive the commission without having to do anything further. By simply advising their customers of the benefits of booking onboard, travel agents can therefore increase repeat business and earning potential.

Paul Beale, head of UK sales for the cruise line, said: “The onboard booking programme has been an incredible tool for many of our travel partners to increase their earning potential, with some receiving extra commission without even having to lift a finger. The beauty of the programme is that once the guest is onboard and is actually experiencing the world-class service, luxurious accommodation and true all-inclusiveness that Regent Seven Seas Cruises provide, it’s a very easy sale and probably the easiest commission cheque that a travel agent can ever receive. But don’t take my word for it; I encourage our travel partners to talk to others in the industry who take full advantage of the onboard booking programme.”

Guests making the booking via an onboard cruise consultant will also receive a best price guarantee where, if a better price is released on the sailing a guest has booked, the company will honour the lower price. Additionally, the onboard bookings are combinable with travel agent offers, should the original booking agency wish to offer any additional benefits once the booking is made. Other benefits for the customer include a reduced deposit, plus $100 shipboard credit to enjoy on their current cruise.

The cruise line has launched a trade awareness campaign featuring real testimonials from travel professionals within the industry. Furthermore, the company’s sales team will be visiting selected travel partners with themed collateral and Hotel Chocolat gifts.

The cruise line is also giving away an all-inclusive cruise worth £7,000 on Seven Seas Voyager. For more details and to be in with a chance of winning, travel agents need to visit regentrade.com/win, watch a short video on the benefits of booking onboard and answer one simple question. The competition runs until March 31.
