Hurtigruten, the expedition cruise line that operates in Antarctica, Greenland, the Arctic’s Spitsbergen region and Norway, rolled out its newly designed online booking engine for retailers.
The site enables real-time booking and cabin availability so retailers can give clients immediate answers and confirmations.
Agents must register to use the site, and the sign-up process invites them to become Certified Hurtigruten Specialists, who are eligible for added benefits, support and commissions.
The site offers a video tutorial, a downloadable user guide, FAQs and 24/7 customer support. Choosing a departure date on a specific sailing opens a window showing the ship, available cabins/suites and pricing. Selecting the cabin or suite category/price leads to a new page that asks for client information, special requests and whether air is needed.
Optional excursions also can be booked through the site engine.
Sailings currently available for booking through the engine include Norway and Explorer products.
For additional information on the booking website or its process, agents can email [email protected]. The company’s consumer site is www.hurtigruten.us, and its phone number is (800) 323-7436.
