Got groups? If the answer is “yes,” AmaWaterways has a great deal for you, and it’s an industry first: for a limited time, all new group contracts for ten or more guests signed with deposits paid between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, 2022, for travel on select dates on Europe and Mekong River cruises in 2023 and 2024 will earn Tour Conductor (TC) Credits on airfares and land packages, in addition to the river cruise TC Credit.
You can earn unlimited TC Credits based on one TC for every nine full-paying clients reserved in each of three trip components—river cruise, airfare and pre- and post-cruise land packages. Those earned TC Credits can be applied to the tenth guest or group leader, or the value of the TCs can be taken as a discount shared by all guests in the group or as an additional commission. The net value of the TC Credits earned is based on the average price paid on each component with the value of the airfare TC Credit capped based on the class of service. The earned airfare and land package credit(s) will be awarded as applicable after the group is paid in full, no less than 90 days prior to departure.
“Like us, travel advisors are entrepreneurs and we always strive to come up with new innovative group offers and marketing support to grow their river cruise business and reward them for entrusting their groups to us,” said Kristin Karst, co-founder and executive vice president of AmaWaterways, in a press statement. “With only 150 guests on board, attentive service and the choice of up to 23 tours included, it is easy to personalize our 7-night river cruises experience for groups and by offering Tour Conductor Credits for airfares and land packages, as well as the river cruise portion, we want to demonstrate how rewarding it is to let AmaWaterways be their one stop trusted shop for all their groups’ travel needs.”
But wait, there’s more! The cruise line has set it up so you can also earn great commissions on cruise, land, air and insurance when you reserve all of your group needs with AmaWaterways. Plus, many of the departure dates offer Enhanced Group Benefits that mean larger savings and a choice of special onboard amenities for your clients.
And it doesn’t stop there. Booking groups with AmaWaterways also includes a dedicated group coordinator to assist with promotional materials and special requests, and the company arranges private motorcoach transportation for groups of 35 or more guests. For Custom Groups of 20 guests or more, the company can propose a list of optional special interest tours that are commissionable at 10 percent.
