Citing "popular demand," Carnival Cruise Line is bringing back its Amp Up Commission Challenge, which enables travel advisors to qualify for higher commission rates in 2023. Through the program, which was last offered during the 2019 Wave Season, advisors can increase their commissions up to 15% for the full 2023 year based on bookings made from January 1 through March 31, 2023.
Participating agencies will need to make from 20 to 125 bookings during the first quarter of 2023 to qualify for higher commission levels between 11 and 15%, which will be applied to bookings made from April 1 through December 31, 2023.
"This is our first true Wave season in several years, and we know how important this time is for our travel advisors, so we're excited to once again have this incentive program kick off just in time for Wave and to offer the opportunity for travel advisors to grow their business and their commissions," said Adolfo Perez, senior vice president of global sales and trade marketing for Carnival Cruise Line. "When we previously offered the Amp Up program from 2017 to 2019, it was very well-received by the travel advisor community, so we know this will be a great boost for them as they head into the New Year."
To participate, travel advisors must register on GoCCL.com during the opt-in period, which starts immediately and runs until Wednesday, February 15. The program is open to agencies in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada that currently qualify for 10 to 14% commissions.
Only new bookings that are fully deposited or paid in full between January 1 and March 31 are eligible and will count toward the goal.
