CALABASAS — AmaWaterways has launched a new Referral Savings Offer with the dual purpose of thanking the company’s loyal customers, while generating new leads for its valued travel advisor partners.
Valid until March 31, 2021, past guests can direct friends and family members to book their first AmaWaterways cruise with a travel advisor using their personal referral code, earning themselves up to Cdn$500 in savings on their next river cruise.
By using the referral code, the recipient also gets $100 savings on their first river cruise.
And as an added reward, travel advisors earn an immediate $100 bonus commission per stateroom on all new bookings deposited before Jan. 3, 2021.
“Our travel advisor partners are our extended sales and marketing arm, and this brand-new offer was designed to help generate lucrative new leads while rewarding their highly satisfied clients who have become some of our most loyal past guests and brand ambassadors,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways.
Karst added: “We believe the time is right to re-ignite the travel spark and hope that this show of appreciation inspires our guests to share the gift of travel with those who they are longing to reconnect with once it is safe to do so.”
Upon receiving the dedicated referral code by email from AmaWaterways, past guests may refer an unlimited number of friends and family, accruing $100 per stateroom savings for future river cruise vacations. They can apply up to $300 of their savings toward each 7- and 10-night future cruise or $500 toward 11- and 14-night cruises.
Karst says AmaWaterways continues to stand behind its travel advisor partners, giving them the support, resources and innovative tools they need.
Earlier this year, the leading river cruise line debuted, via its Travel Advisor Portal, two virtual Marketing Suitcases, full of customizable content and social media posts designed to inspire clients. The company has also uploaded more than 70 shareable videos to its YouTube channel, hosted 2,500 virtual events including weekly Webinar Wednesday product training, dedicated social media marketing webinars and virtual Sip & Sail Cocktail Hours for advisors and their clients.
