Scenic Group USA celebrates travel advisor appreciation month with new partners in travel campaign, bonus commissions and free cruise giveaway. Yes, you read right—you might be sailing off on a luxury river or ocean cruise.
Scenic Group USA is launching a new trade-focused campaign, Partners in Travel, as well as celebrating the contribution of travel advisors with bonus commissions and giveaways of free luxury river and ocean cruises (air included).
“We are immensely grateful for the hard work and dedication our travel partners have shown our two brands during both the toughest of years and our more recent strong recovery,” offered Ken Muskat, managing director, Scenic Group USA, in a press release statement. “As we grow our brand awareness in the U.S. market, we wanted to create a campaign built for our travel advisors that encompasses our relationship with them and to help them grow their business together. Our Partners in Travel campaign seeks to reaffirm our commitment to the travel advisor community and what better time to launch then during Travel Advisor Appreciation Month.”
Advisors can learn more about Partners in Travel by visiting Partners in Travel.
As part of the month-long celebration, new deposited bookings made between May 1 and May 31, 2023, will earn travel advisors an additional $100 commission per cabin for river cruises and $250 for ocean cruises. For every booking, they will also receive one entry in the Win a Free Cruise contest with one winner and their guest enjoying an Emerald Cruises luxury Danube Delights sailing on July 8, 2023, between Regensburg and Budapest; and another winner and guest stepping onto the ultra-luxury Scenic Eclipse II in Portland, Maine on Oct. 13, 2023, for an 11-night cruise to the Atlantic Isles and Caribbean. Airfare included. The winners will be chosen at random from all the entries, so the more bookings, the more chances.
For travel advisors focused on group bookings on the rivers, Scenic and Emerald Cruises have both doubled their per person savings offers to $400 and $250 per person, respectively and is applicable for new group agreements on all 2023 and 2024 European and 2023-May 2025 Southeast Asia river cruises. New ocean group agreements offer participating guests, savings of $250 on Scenic and $200 on Emerald Cruises.
