Travel Weeklys Home-based Agent E-letter: May 29, 2006

CRUISE 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.

THE 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.
