The Travel Institute and AmaWaterways have partnered to offer advisors a bonus commission in the form of a $50, prepaid digital Visa Prepaid Card if they graduate from one of the institute's courses this year and book an AmaWaterways river cruise within 90 days.
Those who graduate from the Certified Travel Associate, Certified Travel Counselor or Certified Travel Industry Executive programs in 2022 are eligible. The river cruise must be booked and deposited within 90 days of their certification.
The bonus commission is retroactive to Jan. 1; earlier graduates will have 90 days from the program's announcement May 10 to book a river cruise.

"Certification from the Travel Institute has propelled many travel advisors forward giving certified advisors the knowledge, know-how and confidence they need to best advise their clients," Diane Horan, director of strategic partner networks with AmaWaterways, said in a release. "We want to recognize those advisors for making this investment in their careers and striving to be their best for our mutual guests by giving them something extra to recognize this achievement."
To get their bonus commission, advisors should register online, then email AmaWaterways with the date of their certification and the passenger's full name and booking number.
