APT offers incentive during plan a cruise month
Cruise and tour operator APT has launched an incentive designed to encourage travel agents to book its European and Asian river cruises during CLIA UK & Ireland’s Plan a Cruise Month.
In recognition of its 90th anniversary APT is offering UK agents the chance to win £90 worth of Love2Shop Vouchers.
They should book clients on any river cruise during Plan a Cruise Month to go into the draw to be one of four winners.
Commenting on the incentive, APT’s national sales manager, Jessica Shelton-Agar, said: “Plan a Cruise Month is an excellent industry initiative that sees all operators coming together to promote this exciting travel format.”
“We are pleased to be able to offer this incentive. We’ve got some incredible deals running through the month so securing sales should be easy. Plus our on-road sales team will be on hand across the UK, helping agents to secure bookings throughout the month,” she added.
APT’s special offers include savings on European river cruises. For example couples who book APT’s classic 15-day Magnificent Europe Luxury river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest will save up to £4,600 per couple. This offer applies to a number of departures between March and October 2018 for APT’s most popular cruise, meaning prices currently start from £2,795 per person twin share.
The cruise takes in 15 of central Europe’s towns, villages and cities. In addition to APT’s three exclusive Signature Experiences – a visit to Germany’s Namedy Castle, a cocktail reception and private concert at Vienna’s City Palace, and a private rail journey on board the Majestic Imperator – the price also includes home-to-airport private transfers, return flights, all onboard meals and drinks plus sightseeing, tipping and onboard entertainment.
In Asia, the company is offering the chance to ‘Fly Free in Premium Economy’ when you book a Luxury river cruise to Vietnam and Cambodia:
This offer is one of a number of special Asia promotions currently available during Plan a Cruise Month and is valid on APT’s most popular itinerary, the Luxury fully inclusive 15-day Vietnam and Cambodia Highlights sailing between Siem Reap and Saigon aboard the AmaLotus.
Highlights include the chance to enjoy a glass of sparkling wine while taking in the sunset over Angkor Wat and a Luxury Mekong river cruise aboard the recently refurbished AmaLotus, as well as special culinary highlights designed by APT’s Brand Ambassador, celebrity chef Luke Nguyen.
Priced from £3,695 (30 August 2018) per person twin share, the journey takes in all the key highlights of the region with guests having the chance to explore Angkor, Kampong Chhnang, Kampong Tralach, Koh Chen, Oudong and Phnom Penh (Cambodia) and Tan Chau, Sa Dec, Cai Be and Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) where guests disembark.
The operator includes its home-to-airport private transfers in addition to return flights, all meals and drinks on board the AmaLotus plus all sightseeing and on board entertainment.
Offers are subject to availability. Prices are valid for new bookings made by 31 October 2017.
