Silversea Rewarding Its Travel Partners
In celebration of the travel advisor community, Silversea Cruises has introduced a new incentive for Travel Partner Appreciation Month.
When travel advisors make a new confirmed booking on any expedition cruise during the months of May and June, they will automatically be entered into a weekly prize draw for a chance to win a gift card. One winner will be selected for each week in May and June.
Massimo Brancaleoni, Silversea’s Senior Vice President of Global Sales, said: “Travel Partner Appreciation Month is a special time for us to show our appreciation and reward our travel advisor partners for their loyalty and efforts. Though it kicks off in May, our incentives continue through June, marking our continuous appreciation for our travel partners and the important role they have played in our success for nearly three decades. This appreciation campaign focuses on our expedition cruises, which provide clients with uniquely immersive travel experiences that can lead to repeat business and, due to the higher per diem fares of our expedition voyages, enable travel advisors to earn more in commission.”
In addition, with the introduction of kicker commissions in early 2023, Silversea’s travel advisors have even more opportunities to earn. The cruise line is offering an extra 1% kicker commission on all expedition cruises, an extra 1% kicker commission on all new-to-brand guests, and an extra 1% kicker commission an all new-to-repeat guests (guests who book for a second time with Silversea through the same agency).
This gives travel advisors the opportunity to increase their commission by up to two extra commission points. This is Silversea’s way of recognizing and rewarding the trade — its most important sales channel.
Concurrent with Travel Partner Appreciation Month, Silversea is offering exceptional value to travel advisors’ clients with its limited-time Suite Upgrades promotion for new bookings made by May 31, 2023. Available with door-to-door all-Inclusive fares on select voyages departing before May 31, 2024, the offer provides the following:
- Up to a two-category suite upgrade on select voyages, for selected suite categories
- USD 1,000 shipboard credit per suite
Plus, Silversea’s door-to-door all-inclusive fares feature a refundable, reduced 15% deposit and price guarantee, as well as private executive transfers between home and airport, international flights and Business Class upgrades, and in-country air and hotels when required by the itinerary, as well as airport transfers and luggage handling.
Guests may use their USD 1,000 per suite shipboard credit for spa treatments, specialty restaurants, premium wines and spirits, optional shore excursions—including curated S.A.L.T. experiences to immerse travelers even deeper into each destination and its culture—onboard boutique purchases, laundry services, and more.
