Carnival Cruise Line is giving travel agencies a new opportunity to earn higher commission percentages in 2018 with its new AMP Up Commission Program. The program offers agencies the ability to increase their commission rate up to 15 percent based on active deposited bookings made from Jan. 1-March 31, 2018. Qualifying agents who reach booking goals during this window will earn increased commissions on new bookings made April 1-Dec. 31, 2018. Registration for the program is open through Nov. 12, 2017 on GoCCL.com.
To qualify for the commission challenge, agents must first register and submit a marketing plan on the AMP Up Commission Program registration site detailing how they intend to meet their commission goal. Once approved, they then need to meet the following booking goals to reach various commission thresholds as part of the program:
- 15 percent commission: 125 bookings
- 14 percent commission: 88 bookings
- 13 percent commission: 63 bookings
- 12 percent commission: 38 bookings
- 11 percent commission: 20 bookings
During the booking period of Jan. 1- March 31, 2018, all new active, fully deposited individual bookings made as well as all berthed group cabins will automatically count towards an agency’s booking goal for the AMP Up Commission Program. At the conclusion of the booking period, agencies will receive an email summary of their goal achievements and increased commission level for April 1-Dec. 31, 2018, if applicable. New FIT and group bookings made from April 1-Dec. 31, 2018 will be eligible for the increased commission level; all berthed group cabins made during this period will earn the commission established at time of the group booking.
Travel agencies in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada currently earning commissions from 10-14 percent are eligible to register for the AMP Up Commission Program. For more information, visit GoCCL.com.
