Starting now, all advisors who graduate with their CRA, CTC, or CTIE certifications in 2022 can earn a $50 bonus commission on new AmaWaterways bookings.
Diane Horan, the director of strategic partner networks with AmaWaterways who holds the CTC designation herself, said the move was made in order to recognize advisors who have made the investment in their own careers.
“Certification from The Travel Institute has propelled many travel advisors’ forward giving certified advisors the knowledge, know-how, and confidence they need to best advise their clients. We want to recognize those advisors for making this investment in their careers and striving to be their best for our mutual guests by giving them something extra to recognize this achievement,” she said.
The bonus applies to any new booking for travel in 2022 and 2023 and can be combined with other promotions. The bookings have to be made within 90 days of the certification date and advisors must register the commission and then email AmaWaterways with their date of certification and booking number.
Guida Botelho, CTIE, director of training for The Travel Institute, said that the new bonus commission decreases the cost of certification by approximately 10%.
“We applaud AmaWaterways, the leader in luxury European river cruising, for their efforts to support, recognize and reward travel professionals who go above and beyond to achieve a higher level of professionalism, career success, and satisfaction via certification. Together with our graduates, they are creating truly amazing travel experiences,” she said.
