Holland America Line is offering 2% bonus commission on Alaska cruises booked by the end of the year.

The extra agent remuneration applies to 2021 departures booked by December 31.

The deal is part of a month-long Alaska trade promotion at a time when cruises are at a standstill due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Destination webinars and videos will be provided for the trade as part of the ‘We Are Alaska’ month.

UK and Ireland sales director Wendy Lahmich said: “We want to give our travel partners more confidence to sell Alaska as a destination, therefore to help them on their journey we are offering an extra 2% bonus commission on any HAL 2021 Alaska cruise or land and sea journey booked until 31 December 2020.

“For instance, on an 18-night holiday for two that includes a 7-night Alaska cruise, three nights in a Wilderness Lodge at Denali National Park and a tour of the stunning Yukon territory, that could mean an extra bonus of more than £200.”

 HAL UK and Ireland managing director Lynn Narraway added: “At a time when most of us are working from home, this is the ideal opportunity for travel professionals to become Alaska experts themselves by joining our webinars, taking our HAL Academy Alaska specialist course, experiencing ‘The Great Land’ through beautiful video and noting our own expert tips and fun facts.”
