MIAMI — Ahead of the 2020 Wave Season, Carnival Cruise Line has brought back its popular AMP Up Commission Challenge for the third straight year.
As of Oct. 14 travel agents can register to earn higher commissions of 11-15% based on the number of bookings they make between Jan. 1 and March 30, 2020.
To participate, travel agencies must register during the opt-in period between Oct. 14 and Nov. 30, 2019. Once registered and confirmed, agents who make 20-125 bookings during the three-month booking period will qualify for higher commission levels on sales for the rest of the year, from April 1 through Dec. 31, 2020.
An agency owner or authorized representative must complete a simple registration form on GoCCL.com. Qualifying agencies will receive an enrollment confirmation email by Dec. 6, 2019. New bookings that are fully deposited or paid in full between Jan. 1 and March 31, 2020 count toward the goal, with the exception of free cabins, reduced agent fares or full-ship charters.
Agencies that currently qualify for 10% to 14% commissions are eligible to participate.
The commission levels and required sales thresholds are as follows:
• 15% commission, 125 bookings
• 14% commission, 88 bookings
• 13% commission, 63 bookings
• 12% commission, 38 bookings
• 11% commission, 20 bookings
“Feedback from partners who participated in the AMP Up Commission Challenge the past two years has been overwhelmingly positive because it gives them an opportunity to boost their income,” said Adolfo Perez, Carnival’s senior vice president global sales and trade marketing. “The beauty of this program is that after ‘amping up’ sales during Wave season, they’ll increase their commission level for the rest of the year. Any program that helps our travel partners earn more is a win-win and at Carnival we remain committed to all travel advisors so they can keep succeeding.”
