Travel agents can earn a 10% commission on sailings of the V2V Empress cruise ferry between Victoria and Vancouver, as well as receive a special industry rate for sailing.
Agents are encouraged to try a sailing on board the catamaran ferry for a rate of $55, plus GST. That pays for a one-way sailing between the two cities for the agent and a companion.
To get the industry rates, agents should contact the V2V Vacations call centre no sooner than within 72 hours of departure. They will get a letter and will present that with a valid photo ID and business card at the time of check-in.
V2V Vacations provides a scenic and comfortable experience for travellers who want a personalized, authentic 3.5-hour cruise of the Georgia Strait between Victoria and Vancouver. The V2V Empress has two stylish seating classes, a selection of local cuisine and beverages, free on-board WiFi and access to a rooftop sundeck.
Once booking is completed, they should e-mail the booking number, IATA# and full agency address to V2V. They will receive a commission agreement valid for 2018 and 2019 which needs to be signed and returned before commissions will be paid.
V2V operates daily return sailings for the rest of the season, until Oct. 15. The schedule of daily sailings will resume March 15, 2019. Regular pricing begins at $110 for a one-way sailing in Premium Class seating and $165 for Royal Class seats and service.
