SPECIALISTS, a luxury cruise and tour agency, is poised to
launch a host agency program this summer called Partners in Travel
Luxury Travel Network. Through the program, Cruise Specialists will
invite agents experienced in selling luxury cruises and tours to
become an independent or home-based member of its network. Greg
Nacco, director of Cruise Specialists, said, We are thrilled with
our position in the luxury market and our opportunity moving
forward in the home-based arena. We fully expect the Partners in
Travel Luxury Travel Network to be the best and most sought after
home-based agency program in the industry.
PROGRAM will offer approved independent agents the ability
to work at home while having the advantages of membership in a
luxury cruise agency network similar to Virtuoso. Nacco said
advantages include high commissions, lead referrals, preferred
rates and exclusive amenities for clients. For more information on
the Cruise Specialists operated Partners in Travel Luxury Travel
Network program, visit www.partnersintravel.com.
UPDATE: The Travel Institute said every new enrollment in
its Spas Lifestyle Specialist course will include a one-year
subscription to SELF magazine. The course, written by Marilyn
Green, editorial director of Worldwide Spa Review Magazine, is
priced at $79, which includes the course, test and magazine offer.
