CLIA launches new rewards program with bonus commissions

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australasia has launched a new rewards program where agents can score bonus commissions and rewards.

The Travel Agent Rewards Program will give agents exclusive benefits from eligible bookings with partnering CLIA crusie lines throughout 2021.

The rewards will be available from 21 cruise lines and can be accessed by Aussie and New Zealander agents who renew their memberships or join CLIA for 2021.

CLIA’s regional managing director, Joel Katz, said the program aims to offer additional benefits members during challenging times.

“The new bonus commission and rewards available in 2021 can repay the cost of CLIA membership many times over,” he said.

“This is a significant and tangible benefit from CLIA cruise lines and creates a clear advantage for those who support their professional success with CLIA membership.”

Rewards will be offered on eligible bookings made with participating CLIA cruise lines between 1 January and 31 December 2021.

The rewards total over $1500 in combined indicative value, paid either as extra commission, a rebate or a gift card, depending on the cruise line.

Accessible online via the CLIA Members Hub, the program’s initial participants will include Aurora Expeditions, Azamara, Celebrity, Celestyal Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Cunard, Dream Cruises, Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Paul Gauguin Cruises, P&O Australia, Ponant, Princess Cruises, Riviera Travel River Cruises, Royal Caribbean, Seabourn, Scenic, Silversea Cruises, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, Virgin Voyages, and Windstar Cruises.

“The global pandemic has had a devastating impact on travel agents,” Katz said.

“Together, with all our existing member benefits including our education programs, events and certification program, this additional 2021 benefit will ensure CLIA agents are rewarded as our industry moves into recovery.”
