Scenic Group is now offering an Advance Commission Program, guaranteeing commissions for travel advisors only 21 days after their clients pay in full at least six months prior to departure on all bookings made now through the end of the year on any Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours and Emerald Cruises ocean or river cruise.
Travel advisors must be registered with Scenic Group USA to receive their advanced commission. Clients who pay in full six months or more before their departure date will also receive pay-in-full savings from Emerald and Scenic.
“We are immensely grateful for the hard work and perseverance our travel partners have shown during two of the toughest years the travel industry has ever seen,” offered Ann Chamberlin, VP Sales, Scenic Group USA. “In an effort to thank them for their loyalty and reward their ongoing sales efforts as travel makes a comeback, we’ve launched this program to help ensure they will have money in their pockets faster.”
The Advance Commission Program is open to all U.S.-based travel advisors and is limited to bookings made in United States dollars only. How cancellations are dealt with may differ. If the cruise line cancels a sailing, they will try to accommodate the guest on an alternate date. If the client cancels, or they don’t want to shift to a different date, the cruise line will either refund the agency, minus the commission, and then the agent pays the guest. Or, the agency pays back the commission and line issues a full refund to the client, depending on how the fare was paid.
