Cruise Commerce is the intermediary between Tour Operators looking for your ships and expertise. Shipping Companies need reliable national or international Tour Operators. We play this game daily. The ship might still be available today, but already in use by your competitor tomorrow.
We know the Tour Operators AND your markets very well. We know business models that can generate profit for you that you may not yet be aware of! The structure of the cruise market, the dynamics and the impact that it has on an Australian partner or Israeli party, for instance, or the specifics of the Russian market. Deals in some markets can be finalized the same year. With other, more complex, markets negotiations may begin two years before the cruises start; so don’t delay – talk today! Interestingly, sometimes partners can seal a program deal in just a couple of months – perhaps fitting perfectly to fill your spare capacity, quickly.
It helps that we know about markets worldwide – that, for example, many trips are sold via the newspaper in England whilst in the USA the loyalty of the traveler to the travel agent plays a very important role. How can you make optimal use of these market characteristics? How do you make the difference? By making use of Cruise Commerce’s services.
Which is best for you – FIT, allocations or partial and full charters? Are all the full charters really full? Would allocations work better? How can your company optimize arrangements to suit your domestic business model? How can you make money with this knowledge?
A good brainstorming session with your Commercial Team generates more than just temporary inspiration. By exchanging ideas about client acquisition, or by discussing a new marketing strategy based on the latest booking trends, we can provide an added value to your commercial strategy. Do you feel the need for stronger guidance to improve your company’s results sustainably?
Let’s be honest: you already have enough to deal with. You are good at what you do, as you have been for years. Cruise Commerce is the fresh new breeze that knows the secrets of the European cruise market. Use us to fight your battles for you, for a one off or on a regular basis.
