The Travel Village Group is inviting specialist cruise agents to join its network under a “Leads Toolkit” model.
Chief executive Phil Nuttall said he wanted to "offer some hope" to any cruise specialists made redundant and who wished to operate under any Travel Village cruise brand – Cruise Village, Southampton Cruise Centre and RiverCruising.co.uk brands.
"If you have your own database of cruisers, or have an appetite for a challenge to go out and find cruise clients, then our open door policy and history of customer care will give you a solid foundation to build on,” he said.
Sales and commercial manager Richard Cross, formerly of Cunard, will oversee the homeworking division.
Agents will initially receive 25% of the commission on a sale, with the remaining 40% paid six to eight weeks prior to travel.
