Cruise Planners has launched new travel advisor websites with three different visual treatments to choose from and the ability for easy customization. These website options provide advisors with the flexibility of operating multiple websites, each with their own theme.
Travel advisors can select a contemporary theme, which encompasses all types of travel and includes value, premium, and luxury brands. A second option is a theme focused primarily on land travel such as escorted tours and all-inclusive resorts. The third option is a site focused on premium and luxury travel brands for all types of travel.
These new websites that are faster and more responsive now feature “Inspire Me” and “Where to Next” sections. They also feature travel imagery, a video gallery, special offers, and an easy-to-navigate cruise search.
The new search engine allows clients to favorite various types of travel they are interested in. Cruise Planners travel advisors can use this information to then follow up directly with the client in order help plan their vacation or simply use the insight for future marketing initiatives.
The websites now allow for even more customization within the advisor’s control. A new section named “Top Reasons to use a Cruise Planners Travel Advisor” allows advisors to add their own travel photo and personality to their site.
“My new website beautifully showcases the amazing vacations that I can expertly plan for my clients. It’s an extension of the trusted Cruise Planners brand and shows the value-added benefits that I can provide,” says Michael Consoli, Cruise Planners franchise owner based in Roswell, GA. “I love that I can customize it with my franchise information, specialties, and promote my special groups. The option to easily choose from three different website options is fantastic and allows me to provide a more unique, custom experience for my clients.”
“We know travelers are researching their vacation online, but ultimately booking through a trusted travel advisor,” said Michelle Fee, CEO and founder of Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative. “Our continuous reinvestment into our marketing and technology programs is what sets Cruise Planners apart. Our new websites help inspire a client’s vacation decision and our experienced travel advisors make their vacation dreams a reality.”
