Hurtigruten Expeditions Celebrates Travel Advisor Appreciation Week with Galápagos Incentive
Seattle, WA (May 2, 2022) – Hurtigruten Expeditions, the world’s leading expedition cruise company, is supporting the Travel Advisor Appreciation Week, which takes place May 2-6, with a Galápagos sales incentive. Any travel advisor booking three of the cruise liner’s 9-day Galápagos adventure launched earlier this year for travel in 2022 will receive a free trip on the same itinerary to use for themselves for travel on any departure through March 31, 2023. Full details are available on Hurtigruten’s trade portal, agentportal.hurtigruten.com.
“We are extremely thankful for the wonderful support from our travel advisor partners, who generate a significant part of Hurtigruten Americas’ overall business. To better understand their needs, we carried out a survey among advisors last year. Based on the results, we’ve made several improvements since, not only to our portal but also sending more personalized emails, and we’ve partnered with BranchUp to push our social media messages through travel agents’ social media. And as always, we know one of the most appreciated initiatives among our travel advisor partners is the extended sales period that starts before and finishes after they have been open to the general public,” said Jeffrey Oar, President, Hurtigruten Americas.
Hurtigruten’s portal is a one-stop shop where travel advisors can access the brands’ image bank, YouTube links, itinerary pages, group flyers, solo supplement rates, and other campaign-supporting assets and download brochures.
The Galápagos Islands is Hurtigruten Expeditions’ latest destination, and last month, Hurtigruten Group announced a 24.9% minority stake acquisition of its partner Metropolitan Touring. As of 2023, the company will offer four year-round itineraries covering all of the Galápagos. The current 9-day Eastern Loop will be complemented by the slightly shorter Western Loopand the Northern Loop, which can also be combined into an 11-day itinerary. For 2022 itineraries, travel advisors can enjoy a special rate of $2,277 for double occupancy.
Besides launching the Galápagos in 2022, Hurtigruten Expeditions is adding two new destinations this year, Alaska and West Africa. This summer, the company will offer two Alaskan itineraries (available both Northbound and Southbound), a 14-day itinerary between Vancouver and Alaska (and vice versa), and an 18-day cruise that covers the Inside Passage, the Alaskan Peninsula, the Aleutian Islands, and crosses the Bering Sea.
