The act of selling travel isn’t hard. If you have a passion for travel, a sense of fun and adventure, and love to talk to people, closing the deal will be relatively easy. However, developing ideas for exciting promotions and targeted marketing; establishing connections with travel suppliers to achieve best pricing and commissions; and pulling together the tools for today’s electronic media, relationship management and reservation tracking will take a strong partnership with the right people.
You cannot sell travel alone! Cruises, Inc. puts all of those components in one relationship. Together with your passion, we form a partnership that will provide you with the ideas, connections and tools you need to sell travel.
When you begin to sell travel, you may be filled with ideas about who your customer will be and how you will reach out to them. But, you will be competing with very slick marketing campaigns that are driven by companies spending lots of money to get their messages heard. Branding, logos and slogans may be a foreign language to you but they are a vital part of gaining the attention of new customers and reminding old friends to reach out to you for their vacation plans.
Cruises, Inc. has a marketing staff devoted to promoting the travel products that match your target market. They are skilled at creating award winning, attention grabbing, electronic and direct mail marketing campaigns that take your message to your customer in an exhilarating way that makes it even easier for you to sell travel. As a Cruises, Inc. independent contractor, your marketing and promotion campaigns will have the full impact of our skilled marketing staff. What a great partnership!
Connections will also be vital to your ability to sell travel successfully. Your personal connection to your own customer will be job one! While you’re focused on that link, a relationship with Cruises, Inc. is a partnership to build all the other connections you need to provide excellent vacation experiences with best pricing to your clients and best commissions to you.
Cruises, Inc. is a major brand in the World Travel Holdings family and shares the reputation and clout of the world’s largest seller of cruise travel. That clout carries with it top tier commissions, fantastic customer service and best pricing for your clients.
As one of our independent contractors, you will be able to offer all your customers both a best price and a satisfaction guarantee. What a great partnership!
Tools that enable you to sell travel aren’t limited to a telephone and a computer. You’ll also need all kinds of applications, ranging from tracking to sorting, from booking to following up and from communicating to reporting. You’ll need websites, newsletters, booking engines, revenue tracking, price comparisons and the ability to communicate with suppliers, consumers and others in the industry. Even as I write this, there may be something new you’ll need that I haven’t listed. Accessing all this by yourself just isn’t possible anymore. You need the reinforcement of a partner like Cruises, Inc. We spend all our time and our resources to make sure our independent contractors have the most current and most state-of-the-art tools they need to just sell travel.
We make sure our partnership with you provides you with anything and everything you need to sell travel. You are not alone. We do not sell travel. You do. We support you. We just make sure you have the ideas, connections and tools you need to excel at providing the best travel experience possible to the people who trust you with their vacation dreams.
We believe you shouldn’t sell travel without us!
