Silversea has designed two defined group types and a bespoke group programme providing competitive benefits for travel partners and their clients, with guidance and support from its in-house group team.
First is the Affinity Group Program, where travel partners that book six suites or more for a group travelling on the same voyage, will enjoy benefits such as savings of up to 15 per cent, up to US$300 shipboard credit per suite, 90 days price protection, no upfront deposit for group creation, advanced access to specialty dining reservations, complimentary cocktail party upon request, 15 per cent commission on advantage status sailings, and Silversea Cruises Fare Guarantee which applies to Door-to-Door and Combination Fares.
The second is the Promotional Group Program, which is designed for travel partners looking to increase their earnings, generate a dedicated marketing campaign with more shelf life, or package up a particular sailing with their USPs.
Benefits include 90 days price protection, five per cent bonus commission on group bookings held at least 12 months before departure, 15 per cent minimum base commission on all advantage status sailings, no deposits required for group creation, up to US$300 shipboard credit per suite, advanced access to specialty dining, cocktail parties, and
Silversea Cruises Fare Guarantee which applies to Door-to-Door and Combination Fares.
Adam Radwanski, managing director, Asia Pacific, Silversea, said: “Through our enhanced groups programme, we offer our travel partners a range of powerful resources to foster deeper connections with their clients, presenting an unmatched value proposition that can significantly contribute to securing larger bookings.
“The programme is straightforward to establish and manage, presenting a compelling opportunity for travel agents to boost their revenue, particularly for those under time constraints.”
