Scenic Group Extends Advance Pay Commissions Programby Dori Saltzman /
Scenic Group USA is extending its Advance Pay Commissions Program, which was originally set to expire at the end of this year. The program now runs through the end of 2023.
Under the program, registered advisors who book their clients on any Scenic river cruise, Scenic Eclipse yacht cruise, and Emerald river and ocean yacht sailings with a departure at least six months out, receive their commission within 21 days after the booking is paid in full.
“Doing right by our valued travel partners is what we strive to do at the Scenic Group," said Ann Chamberlin, vice president of sales at Scenic Group, USA. "That includes paying commissions as soon as possible… It’s an easy win-win as guests receive additional savings and travel advisors get their commissions much earlier. There are no departure caveats and it’s applicable on both Scenic Luxury Cruises and Emerald Cruises river and ocean products.”
"I can't begin to tell you how great it has been to finally receive commission up front from a supplier as soon as my clients pay in full vs waiting until after they sail months or a year later," said Toni Lanotte-Day of Toni Tours. “The immediate reward of receiving my hard-earned commission within three weeks of making and paying the booking has been a real shot in the arm and my bank account."
To participate, agency owners (whether independent or host) must register with Scenic Group USA, after which they’ll receive an enrollment confirmation within five business days.
