Silversea is reaching out to encourage the trade with extra commission on bookings made before the end of February.
The line said it was “reinforcing its commitment to its worldwide community of travel partners” with the offer, which could see agents benefit from a £150 bonus commission for new bookings made on any voyage departing from 1 July to 31 December.
The bonus commission, which will be paid between 30 to 45 days after a booking with a deposit is made, is available until 28 February, and applies to 139 voyages worldwide.
Other initiatives aimed at supporting travel partners already include Silversea’s Marketing Central, with online access to marketing resources and sales tools, the Silversea Academy interactive training platform and Virtual Visits, a short informative video series hosted by Silversea team members globally.
“Our travel partners are extremely important to Silversea, playing a key role for us and our guests,” said Silversea president and chief executive Roberto Martinoli. “We are therefore delighted to offer this added benefit to express our appreciation for their hard work, and make it even more rewarding to partner with us – especially during these challenging times. The bonus commission is a great way for travel professionals to earn extra income during difficult days.”
Under Silversea’s Cruise with Confidence programme, cruises can be cancelled by guests up to 30 days prior to departure with a 100% two-year Future Cruise Credit.
Part of the Royal Caribbean Group, Silversea was among several cruise lines this week to announce a further suspension in sailing.
