Cruise Holidays surges to 60
THE home-based cruise specialist network trading under the Cruise Holidays brand has reported a strong 2015, with double-digit sales growth and more than 60 members across the country.
Les Farrar, managing director of parent company Your Travel & Cruise Pty Ltd, has also announced a new partnership with Travel Training Australia which offers agents access to exclusive training modules.
The training program includes content on how to build agent businesses plus other services such as an airfares help desk and an Agent Connect program which allows consultants to collaborate and share information.
“By partnering with a dedicated training company we bring a level of expertise and professionalism into our development program to make it the best of its kind within the home based sector,” he said.
“Whilst recruiting new agents is important, the nurturing of our existing agents is just as crucial, and supports our philosophy of being a ‘host agency’ working behind the scenes to help our individual agents’ businesses”. Cruise Holidays launched in Australia almost four years ago ( CW 01 Mar 2012), with Queensland-based CruiseMart becoming Australia’s first master franchisor of the US-based brand.
