Carnival Cruise Line will pay UK travel agents commission on future cruise credits applied to new bookings.

The line announced this week that commission would be given to US travel agents and has now confirmed it will do the same for those in the UK.

Iain Baillie, vice president UK and international sales, said: “As part of our Travel Agents Rock promise, we continue to look at ways to enhance earnings and profitability for our travel agent partners who work so very hard in promoting and booking Carnival Cruise Line to their customers.

“We continue to find forward thinking initiatives such as this agent commercial enhancement to demonstrate to the trade our utmost support for their ongoing commitment.”

The change means the line will pay commission on the full value of a cruise in which a passenger uses a future cruise credit to pay for part or all of the sailing.

Previously, the line calculated commission on the price of the cruise after a future cruise credit was applied.

The new commission scheme is designed to add incremental earning opportunities for agents.
