GROUPS - Our key to successful group travel
Let our Bucket List Concierge™ Team plan your dream vacation now!
Most people enjoy vacationing with a group of friends, but few would care to become the group leader saddled with the responsibility to manage all of the details and payments. Leave all the research, bookings, flight arrangements and payment processing to us. In some cases we’ll even escort your group.
We’ll be happy to meet with you and your friends to map out your holiday. We’ll find for you the best group rates and benefits and take care of all of the details.
You left as friends….we want you to return as friends
Every ocean and river cruise line and escorted tour company handles group “travel free” credits and group discounts and amenities differently.
Generally, when a minimum number of travelers are booked, a credit is given at final payment on the tour leader’s booking equal to either the base rate [charges less port charges and taxes] of the lowest cabin category booked, or the average cabin category booked or the most popular cabin category booked.
As your group agent, besides looking for the best “free travel” credit, we also ask cruise lines and tour companies for their best offers on a basket of amenities for our groups including reduced cabin rates, free or air credits, open bar, free gratuities, WIFI, shore excursion credit per port, specialty dinners, photo packages, parties, shipboard credit, reduced single rates or donations back to the organization.
