Agents can win £200 towards a team night out with Celebrity Cruises’ new campaign, devoted to all-inclusive sales.
Spring offers for summer cruises include free drinks packages worth over £500, $300 onboard spend, free Wi-Fi and free gratuities. Clients can combine all of these if they book a Suite Class package. For the chance to win the cash, agents simply need to upload an all-inclusive themed photo of their team to the Celebrity Travel Agents Facebook page. Winning teams will be picked at the end of March and another at the end of April.
Claire Stirrup, director of sales, UK & Ireland, Celebrity Cruises said:
“It’s important for us to make sure we equip our trade partners with great offers ahead of the lead up to summer. As many people are now booking their 2017 summer holiday, we wanted to make sure our front line agents are armed with top tips and all the information they need in one place with the new selling guide. As always, we are keen to reward our agents for their continuous support and also to encourage them to make even more Celebrity Cruises’ bookings through incentives. Our UK & Ireland sales team will be out and about supporting and having fun with our valued partners in the lead up to summer, and we’re looking forward to seeing our agents’ ‘all-inclusive’ team photos on our Celebrity Travel Agents Facebook page.”
The new selling guide is being delivered to agents across the UK and Ireland and includes details on the different types of drinks packages available for free as part of the campaign, tips from the cruise line’s dedicated trainer, Leon Hand, on how to sell Suite Class. The guide also includes information on how agents can benefit from onboard sales as part of Celebrity Cruises’ Future Cruises programme.
Those agents that are signed up to Celebrity Cruises’ rewards scheme can earn up to 1,000 Celebrity Rewards points (£10) for every booking as part of the new campaign. Rewards points can be converted into luxury gifts, such as designer handbags, jewellery, tech gadgets, or agents can even exchange their earnings for cash.
