Biggest Ever Trade Promotion - and More Commission
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has today launched 'Plane Sailing' - its biggest-ever Trade competition, designed to give travel agents first-hand experience of one of its fantastic new fly-cruises.
'Plane Sailing' coincides with the launch of Fred. Olsen’s first ever dedicated fly-cruise brochure, 'Fred. Olsen Fly-Cruises Worldwide 2017-19.'
Every day from Wednesday, April 5, 2017 to Wednesday, May 3, 2017 inclusive, two lucky travel agents will get the chance to win a fantastic prize – and no registration or booking form is needed.
To enter, all travel agents have to do is to make a booking on any cruise featured in the Fred. Olsen Fly-Cruises Worldwide 2017-19’ brochure. Every booking that qualifies will instantly go into a daily draw.
Among the fabulous prizes on offer in the daily draw are:
Winners will be selected at random and announced daily throughout the competition period, via the Travel Agent Centre.
In addition to the daily draw is a weekly draw, where every seven days one lucky agent will win a cruise holiday of a lifetime – with four chances to win!
Winning agents can choose from a selection of fly-cruise itineraries. The lucky winners will get: accommodation on board and return flights for two people PLUS on board spending credit of £250 per room! Fred. Olsen is also throwing in its ever popular all-inclusive drinks package.
In addition to ‘Plane Sailing’ for travel agents, Fred. Olsen has also reviewed its commission structure on its fly-cruise product.
For all new bookings made from April 5, 2017 onwards, Fred. Olsen will pay commission on the fly-cruise price, raising the commission paid by an average of £75 per person or more! (APD remains non-commissionable). For clarity, this amount will be shown separately on the confirmation invoice.
This commission change follows feedback from Trade partners, and is a way of rewarding agents for promoting and selling Fred. Olsen's most extensive and ambitious fly-cruise programme ever.
Justin Stanton, Sales and Marketing Director said: “This move shows the importance of the trade to Fred. Olsen with the new Fly-Cruise programme.
“We have listened carefully to the views of our key trade partners and ensured that agents who support the programme with ongoing sales and marketing initiatives are rewarded.”
