Scenic & Emerald Waterways has launched a series of giveaways and competitions.

From 1-31 July 2018, there is a focus on river cruises in France. To celebrate the upcoming Tour de France, held from 7-29 July, regional sales managers will be on their bikes visiting travel agents, as well as giving away bottles of champagne and French food hampers to their agent of the week.

These can be won by making a booking, running a successful event, promoting Scenic & Emerald Waterways and being a passionate ambassador for the two brands.

At the end of the month, the agent in each region – North, Central and South – who has made the most France bookings across both brands will win their own bike.

There will also be double River Rewards & More points on every France booking made. Points can be redeemed against gifts, including designer perfume, gadgets, and an 8-day river cruise for two.

Dawn Quinn, Head of Sales UK for both brands, said: “We are very excited to launch our summer campaign, starting with a France focus this month to coincide with the Tour de France. Agents are incredibly important to Scenic & Emerald Waterways and so we are always looking for ways to thank them for their endless support.

“Our river cruises in France are second to none, with Scenic 5-star all-inclusive river cruising on the Rhone, Seine, and in Bordeaux, including renovated ships with a Salt Lounge and Scenic Culinaire cooking school.”

There will also be weekly competitions on Scenic & Emerald Waterways’ Totally Trade Facebook and @ScenicEmerald Twitter accounts, and the River View weekly email, where agents can win some  prizes for answering themed questions.
