A Great Way to Add Commissions to Your Cruises or Vacation Packages

Podcast Number Ninty-five

Are you missing out on extra commissions. Lorene and Barry talk with Barry and Julie Karp of Shoretrips. If you are selling cruises, and your clients are booking their shore trips through the cruise line, you are losing commissions. The cruise lines do not pay you commissions on the shore trips that your clients book through the cruise lines. Shoretrips changes all of that. Your clients can book their shore trips through Shoretrips, the client receives a better value for their vacation dollar AND Shoretrips pays you a commission. Your clients can book a shore trip even if they are not taking a cruise. Shoretrips offers hotel pick up service at hotels in the major port cities. This is an interview that you should not miss if you are interested in your bottom line as a travel agent.

Barry. Just a short note to thanks you for the great podcast. I signed up to a bunch of travel related podcasts when I first got into podcasts and started my own (tips for tarvellers) and yours is the ONLY one that I am still subscribed to after all this time. I listen to every one and enjoy them. The tip on the is great as I am off on a cruise from Barbados, around some islands and then sailing back to UK and am checking out what they offer versus on the ship options. They look great and am sure I will book some. Thanks again. Gary
