Costa Cruises North America is honoring travel partners with an incredible show of appreciation during a “September Sellabration.” Travel advisors can qualify to win giveaways worth more than $40,000 by booking their clients on a Costa cruise. Costa is encouraging agents to make as many bookings throughout the month of September for more chances to win cruises or gift cards.
Labor Day kicks off the month of appreciation with a weekly drawing for two quad balcony cabins that will be awarded to one advisor per week, randomly selected from deposited bookings made during the previous week. A total of eight quad cabins, valued at approximately $36,000, are slated to be awarded during the month. Agents can invite up to seven friends and family members to join them on a seven-day Costa adventure departing from Barcelona, Spain; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Istanbul, Turkey; or Rome, Italy.
“These past two years have been a roller coaster for the cruise industry, and our ‘September Sellabration’ giveaways recognize the value we place on our travel advisor partners and how grateful we are for their support,” said Scott Knutson, vice president of sales and trade marketing for Costa Cruises North America. “There is no better way for agents to share their passion for travel with friends and family than by taking them on a cruise. A small group of eight is an incredible way to experience Costa.”
In addition to the cabins, the September Sellabration continues with daily giveaways — seven days a week — of a $100 American Express gift card, randomly selected from deposited bookings made the week prior.
As part of the September Sellabration initiative, travel partners can attend a new series of Costa sales webinars in September, October and November to enhance their knowledge of the brand and learn what’s new. Advisors can sign up to attend a webinar in their area here https://booking.costaextra.com/CostaClick/en-US/Pages/Login.aspx.
Additionally, all agents can join the new Costa Travel Advisors Facebook group. To join the group, advisors can visit the Costa North America Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/ciaocostadvisors.
