To mark the launch of its entry into the UK market, Tauck, the 90-year old, family-owned, high-end tour operator is offering the chance to win a luxury Tauck river cruise for two, as a prize for reading its brochures.
To enter, agents need to answer 20 questions, and register for Tauck’s Agent Rewards programme. Answers to all the questions can be found in three of Tauck’s 2015 UK brochures, “European River Cruising,” “Luxury Worldwide Journeys & Cruises,” and “USA & Canada.”
Agents that answer all questions correctly will be placed in a draw where the winners will be chosen at random.
“We know how busy agents are and how difficult it can be for them to find time to learn about the myriad of products that they have on offer. So at Tauck we wanted to give them the chance to win a great prize without having to spend valuable time away from the counter. The competition is relatively easy to complete, but will provide agents with some fantastic information that should assist them in selling Tauck to their clients,” said Ray Steward, UK & Ireland Country Manager.
“When selling our all-inclusive river cruises, travel agents should bear in mind that they will earn commission on every element of their client’s holiday,” Steward continued. “This is often quite different compared to a cruise organised by a lower cost operator, where customers are typically sold all kinds of optional tours on which agents will earn no commission. Many agents don’t appreciate this because the customer on a lower priced cruise or tour might well spent a similar amount of money once all optional extras are taken into account, but the agents will receive a smaller slice of the cake.”
Tauck will offer a choice of cruises/dates for the prize, which will consist of a cruise-only, 7-night Tauck river cruise (minimum of a Category 3 cabin), transfers to/from the riverboat, and other fees for the competition winner and their guest; subject to availability.
