SEATTLE, June 2, 2020 – Seabourn, the world’s finest ultra-luxury travel experience, is launching a new special bonus commission offer, reaffirming and strengthening its commitment and dedication to travel advisors worldwide. The brand is extending a special four percent bonus commission on new bookings made on 2021 sailings to Alaska, Europe and Canada/New England.
“Travel advisors have been working tremendously hard around the clock to keep their clients happy over the past few months and have shown time and time again to be incredibly valuable and important to our business,” said Chris Austin, Seabourn’s senior vice president of Global Marketing & Sales. “We can’t thank them enough for their ongoing support, and this new bonus commission is another way to express our appreciation to the travel advisors for their partnership.”
The special bonus commission can be earned when booking any of Seabourn’s current promotions, including the line’s Sensational Suite Savings valid through July 2020, which offers 50% reduced deposits and savings on a selection of suite accommodations and exceptional amenities, including veranda suite upgrades, shipboard credits up to $2,000 per suite, air credits, Internet packages and more.
Furthermore, travel advisors can receive commission sooner by taking advantage of booking their clients on Seabourn’s new 10% Early Bonus Savings promotion, providing an additional 10 percent in savings off the base cruise fare for select voyages when guests pay in full by July 31, 2020.
The four percent bonus commission applies only to new bookings for select 2021 sailings and is not valid on voyages on Seabourn Venture. For more information and terms and conditions, please visit Seabourn's Travel Advisor Center.
“We are delighted to extend this new promotion, which will put commission in the hands of our valued travel advisors following the booking being paid in full,” added Austin.
In addition, travel advisors can share with their clients Seabourn’s enhanced “Book with Confidence” policy, providing travelers with even more flexibility, assurance and options to cancel their booking up to 30 days prior to departure on any new bookings and receive a future cruise credit. The updated policy also includes a new “Best Fare Guarantee” benefit, which will provide guests who booked a Seabourn voyage by July 31, 2020, with the opportunity to request an adjustment in the event fares are lowered for their specific voyage and suite category.
In further support of its travel advisor partners, earlier this season Seabourn also announced that it will honor travel agency current commission levels in 2021, regardless of performance in 2020, and has extended commission protection on paid in full bookings and on Future Cruise Credits for voyages impacted by Seabourn’s pause in global operations, regardless if the guest selects an FCC or a refund
