CroisiEurope has launched its first-ever travel agent booking incentive to “reward” agents and “help them to grow their businesses”.
Launching today (January 17), the CroisiEurope Sales Challenge runs until December 31 and gives all travel agents in the UK the chance to earn points which can be exchanged for trips ranging from a two-night hotel break in the UK to a safari-cruise in Southern Africa.
To join the challenge, agents should register here.
Agents will automatically receive 250 points when their registration is validated.
Points will be based on turnover: for example, if an agent sells a cruise with a value of £699, they will receive 699 points.
Bonus points will be on offer throughout the challenge which participating agents will be advised about.
Once enough points have been accumulated, agents can exchange them for a trip of their choice as follows:
2,000 points = a voucher for a two-night hotel break in the UK
5,000 points = a weekend cruise to a European destination of their choice
10,000 points = a five- or six-day European river cruise
20,000 points = a seven- or eight-day European river or ocean cruise
25,000 points = an ocean cruise onboard La Belle des Oceans
30,000 points = a Mekong cruise
35,000 points = a safari-cruise in Southern Africa.
John Fair, CroisiEurope’s UK sales director, said: “As the leader in European river cruising, CroisiEurope has always worked closely with the trade and provided generous commissions, training, fam trips and agent rates. However, we feel it is now more important than ever to support our travel agent partners which is why we are launching the CroisiEurope Sales Challenge in order to reward them and help them to grow their businesses. In 2022 we are offering our most expansive programme ever with over 180 itineraries on 55 ships and 16 major rivers, the French canals, coastal routes plus oceans and this provides agents with numerous opportunities to sell our product and earn themselves some points.”
Group sales, charters and any deferred bookings using Refund Credit Notes are not eligible for points.
