Viking Cruises launches agent por­tal

Cruise Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

VIKING Cruises has amped up its sup­port for the trade by launch­ing a travel agent por­tal for Aus­tralian and New Zealand agents, of­fer­ing a range of mar­ket­ing tools.

The por­tal fea­tures ma­te­ri­als cov­er­ing both Viking’s river and ocean prod­uct, in­clud­ing cur­rent of­fers and pro­mo­tions, a range of doc­u­ments for each Viking des­ti­na­tion, an im­age li­brary, ac­cess to we­bi­nars and other train­ing tools and down­load­able mar­ket­ing ma­te­rial such as fly­ers, brochures, press re­leases and Face­book tiles.

Viking Cruises Aus­tralia and New Zealand md Michelle Black said the move was to “bet­ter sup­port our trade net­work and make it eas­ier and quicker than ever for our val­ued agents to mar­ket and sell our river and ocean cruise prod­uct”.

“Ini­tial feed­back from the agent test group has been pos­i­tive as it pro­vides agents with all the in­for­ma­tion they may need, in one re­li­able and ac­ces­si­ble re­source,” she said.

As an in­cen­tive to reg­is­ter for the por­tal, Viking Cruises is giv­ing away an eight-night Chateaux, Rivers & Wine river cruise for two on the 20 Oct 2018 de­par­ture.

To go in the draw, agents must reg­is­ter by 01 Dec.
