ETS Tours has launched a 2023 faith-based cruises program along with a training webinar for travel advisors on how to effectively sell these diverse travel experiences throughout the Mediterranean, Alaska, Canada, North America, the Caribbean, Mexico, the Holy Land, and beyond. In addition, the company is offering a special commission incentive on select 2023 cruises.

ETS Tours is helping travel advisors boost their income with a commission structure that typically offers 15 percent commission and one free tour conductor space for every 10 paid guests. Plus, the company is now offering 20 percent commission on select 2023 standard cruises booked now through July 31st (no free tour-conductor spaces and other restrictions apply).

Every ETS Tours cruise includes the whole package—cruise, airfare, transfers, select shore excursions, expert local guides, and more. Uniquely, ETS Tours also features hospitality staff onboard the ship to assist with welcoming guests, acclimating to the vessel, and helping with needs that may arise throughout the cruise.

“Faith-based travel is known to be one of the fastest sectors to bounce back in tough times—making it the optimal time for travel advisors to learn how to tap into this extremely lucrative segment of travel,” said James Ridgway, CEO of ETS Tours, in a press statement. “Equally as important for many of today’s travelers, when it comes to cruises, the fact that we take care of every detail and feature hospitality staff onboard to virtually ‘hold their hands’ every step of the way throughout their travels makes booking faith-based cruise experiences even more appealing to today’s travelers and gives them extra peace of mind that they can book and travel now.”

ETS’ cruises include special activities and seminars by leaders, many considered prominent in their fields, such as clergy, motivational speakers, comedians, authors, musicians, scholars, and more. In addition, for the Oberammergau Passion Play that was delayed in 2020, ETS has chartered several AMAWaterways river cruise ships in preparation. These journeys highlight the Christian heritage of Europe and take guests to the Bavarian village for its world-famous production.

“Truly, there’s no better way to build fellowship than through meaningful journeys to sacred places around the globe—and that translates effectively into long-term relationships and loyal clients that will typically book their travels with you again and again,” said Ridgway, in press materials.

ETS Tours has also launched a webinar-based training program to help travel advisors tap into this $50–$100 billion industry. The next installment of its webinar series will be held on Wednesday, April 20, 2022, at 3 p.m. EST where ETS Tours will launch its 2023 cruise products and give travel advisors the opportunity to learn from representatives from Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, and AMAWaterways.
