The Water Taxi of Fort Lauderdale has begun paying
commissions to agents who book clients online.
"We have invested quite a bit in our online
program, and based on the number of inquiries that we receive from travel
agents across the country, we believe that this program will be a huge
success,” company principal Mike McGurl said in a statement.
Agents can earn $3 for each discount ticket booked,
$5 for a standard ticket and $10 for a three-day pass.
Providing daylong, hop-on/hop-off access to 18 stops
along the Intracoastal Waterway between Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood, the
water taxi serves as both a transit option and a tourist attraction. It passes
by Fort Lauderdale's Las Olas Riverfront, the Port Everglades cruise port and
numerous $10 million-plus homes of celebrities and captains of industry.
Under Water Taxi of Florida's new travel agent
resellers program, agents can enter a passcode at www.watertaxi.com then purchase and deliver tickets for clients. Commission checks will
be paid monthly.
