Earlier this month, Holland America Line updated its Travel Agent Appreciation Fares. These special offers, available to travel professionals only on select sailings, allows agents to experience the line’s spacious staterooms, top-notch service and extensive activities available on sailings around the world. Agents must complete the Travel Agent Appreciation Fares Application to qualify for the discounted rates. For example, Travel Agent Appreciation Fares for the 16-day Passage to America itinerary, departing Oct. 24, 2016 aboard the Koningsdam, starts at $749 in an Interior cabin for agents; regular rates start at $799 pp.
The Travel Agent Appreciation Fares initiative was launched last year as part of Holland America Line’s PartnerSHIPS agent support program, which also includes the Group Amenities Program (GAP), offering group benefits such as the option to earn a tour conductor with 10 paid guests as opposed to the standard 15; the ability to earn override commission more easily; and a dedicated assistance team.
