Are the big players interested in buying smaller agencies? Well, it depends on who you ask.
MIAMI — Agents who opt-in to Carnival Cruise Line’s 2019 ‘AMP Up Commission Challenge’ have the chance to qualify for higher commission rates, up to 15%, following a booking qualification period Jan. 1 — March 31, 2019.
Agencies who reach set booking goals during this window will earn the increased commissions on new Carnival bookings made April 1 – through December 2019. Agents can register for the program now through Dec. 23, 2018, on GoCCL.com.
“Last year our travel agency partners embraced the AMP Up Commission Challenge and exceeded their goals beyond our expectations, so we brought it back this year to give even more agencies the chance to benefit from this program and earn more commission,” said Adolfo Perez, Carnival’s Senior VP of Sales and Trade Marketing. “Wave is the busiest and most rewarding booking period of the year, and we’re excited to provide our travel partners with additional opportunities to increase their earnings.”
Once registered and confirmed for the 2019 AMP Up Commission Challenge, participating agencies must make from 20 to 125 bookings during the January to March booking period to qualify for higher commission levels between 11 and 15%:
The incentive is available to agencies currently qualifying for 10 to 14% commission.
To participate, an agency owner or authorized representative must go to GoCCL.com to complete the registration form. Once the agency’s information has been verified, an enrollment confirmation email will be sent by Dec. 28. Only new bookings made and fully deposited or paid in full between Jan. 1 — March 31, 2019 will count towards the goal, with the exception of free staterooms, reduced advisor fares and full-ship charters.
Carnival says it’s offering the AMP Up Commission Challenge as part of #thelist, its trade support program. For more information on how to take part in the 2019 AMP Up Commission Challenge, login to GoCCL.com.
