The Special Needs Group (SNG), which provides wheelchair, scooter, oxygen and other special needs equipment rentals to travelers all over the world, announced today that it would be eliminating all previously non-commissionable fees.

Those fees include one-way and hotel delivery fees, both of which were previously non-commissionable. Both those fees will now be included in its all-inclusive pricing, which had already incorporated any equipment loss/damage coverage,

“Our latest commission move is an acknowledgement of the true value and expertise Professional Travel Advisors contribute to SNG and the travelling public. We have made the necessary systems modifications so that the total transactional price if fully commissionable, with absolutely no commission caps,” SNG CEO and President Andrew J. Garnett said in a statement.

Also today, SNG announced that it has added Celebrity Edge, Harmony of the Seas, and Port of New Orleans to its growing portfolio of destinations that it serves. In total, SNG serves 215 ports and cities in 68 countries.

This month marks SNG’s 12th year anniversary. To celebrate, it is also offering all travel advisors 20 percent commission on all WGS bookings made during the month, regardless of sail date.
