Adventure Canada has unveiled new measures to better protect travel advisors, increasing agent commission protection to a minimum $250 USD per traveller while eliminating processing fees on sales.
"Travel has been one of the hardest hit industries during the pandemic and yet travel advisors continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape with dedication, care and effort to keep tour operators running," the company, which specializes in small-ship expedition travel in the Canadian Arctic and Greenland, said on Thursday (April 29).
Over the past year, the tour operator worked closely with its valued agents to "determine the best ways to provide support during this time of recovery and in this new age of travel," the company said.
“Our partners mean the world to us"
Through those conversations, a new Travel Agent Booking Terms and Conditions mandate was created.
“Our partners mean the world to us,” said Matthew James Swan, Director of Business Development at Adventure Canada. “The immense value of working with travel advisors shines brightly through their wealth of knowledge, connections, and experience and we are committed to recognizing their efforts, especially during these challenging times.”
Adventure Canada said it is "grateful to their travel agent network for the continued support and inspiration" and is committed to being a tour operator that "listens, learns and is open to change."
