Virgin Voyages has increased its commission level to 16 per cent permanently.
In a statement the line said: “This is not a limited-time offer. It’s something you can count on, in addition to earning on everything and no NCFs. That’s right; no portion of the base voyage fare is set aside, designated, deducted, or excluded from figuring into your earnings.
“We’ll also keep you soaking up the sums as you continue to earn 10% commission on everything sold before your Sailor sails, with the exception of taxes and fees. So, when you put in the work of helping your clients customize their epic experiences by adding extras like onboard credit, shore excursions, hotel stays, voyage protection, spa treatments, and premium WiFi, you’ll be rewarded for that work. You even earn commission on selling a Bar Tab, which is our answer to a drinks package. You know we got you.”
“Our First Mates are a true extension of our team, and with a deep and long history of making our industry a success for so many years, we recognise how important their role is,” said Tom McAlpin, President and CEO for Virgin Voyages. “We have listened to our First Mates and they have told us what they need in order to be successful during this time. In turn, we are investing in our relationship by increasing our commission structure to 16 percent and honouring their role as essential pillars of the travel community.”
