Pax Global Media

AmaWaterways kicked off Travel Advisor Appreciation Month on May 4 with a dedicated Webinar Wednesday announcing exclusive perks – including free sailings, ‘Sell 3, Sail Free’ reward cruises, new Seminar on the River dates and gift cards – to thank travel advisors for their unwavering dedication and support over the river cruise line’s 20 year history. 

Continuing throughout the month of May, travel advisors can earn a $20 gift card for each new 2022 FIT booking and earn a reward cruise when they confirm three FIT bookings made between October 1, 2021 – December 31, 2022 for 2022 sailings. 

AmaWaterways will also give away complimentary river cruises with round-trip business class airfare to two lucky travel advisors who attend its popular Webinar Wednesday series during the month of May.

AmaWaterways expresses appreciation to our travel advisor partners all year long, but the month of May is a special time for our teams to share even more love by offering these additional rewards and incentives,” said Kristin Karst, co-founder and executive vice president of AmaWaterways. “As 97 per cent of our sales come from our travel advisors, we also like to use this opportunity to encourage even more travellers to utilize travel advisors by sharing on our social media channels the incredible value they bring to their clients.”

The May 4 Webinar Wednesday was hosted by Kristin Karst and Alex Pinelo, senior vice president of sales at AmaWaterways, who were joined by special guests Zane Kerby, president and chief executive officer, ASTA and Sarah Little, vice president of business development, ASTA

In an effort to provide the brand’s valued travel advisor partners with the opportunity to enjoy a much-deserved getaway, AmaWaterways unveiled a new ‘Sell 3, Sail Free’ incentive, giving travel advisors who book three eligible sailings the opportunity to choose a complimentary 7-night river cruise for two from 20 AmaWaterways departures in 2022. 

Also announced were five new Seminar on the River dates including a July 31, 2022 Danube cruise on board the revolutionary AmaMagna. 

These special cruises will be hosted by AmaWaterways’ dedicated sales team with onboard sessions providing in-depth product knowledge and key sales tips to help travel advisors boost their business.

 “Throughout the past two years, especially, travel advisors have demonstrated an incredible resiliency, professionalism and deep passion for their profession, along with their commitment to their clients’ wellbeing,” said Pinelo. “We are deeply honoured to recognize their hard work and celebrate their loyalty to AmaWaterways with these special offers and rewards.”  

AmaWaterways recently implemented new time-saving tools for travel advisors including enhancements to its online booking engine and a callback feature on its reservation lines. 

Additional reservations and air department agents have also been added to handle the increase in business as international travel continues to rebound.
