TMR Releases First Cruise Report Card For Travel Agents


Travel Market R
eport has released the first volume in a series of reports on the policies of all the major travel suppliers.  

Starting with the major ocean cruise lines, this first volume of the Cruise Report Card For Travel Agents includes information on 13 cruise companies, from Carnival to Windstar. It lists their policies regarding commissions, fam trips, overbooking, non-commissionable fees and training programs, and pulls all the information into a series of easy-to-read charts.  

In the coming months TMR will follow up with similar reference guides on river cruises, hotels and resorts, and tour operators—all with an eye to helping travel agents better understand the suppliers with whom we all do business.
