Quick Answers to Questions We've Been Asked
When/how is commission paid? We have an aggressive commission program. You receive your commission shortly after your client's vacation begins.
Is the commission the same for all travel agents, or is it based on yearly performance? We have many of our travel agent partners who are bringing more and more of their esteemed clients to Story Land & Sea® and we are working to create a tiered structure to reward those clients.
How far in advance should we try and book our clients? The earlier the better is our motto as most of our small group tours of only 16 travelers sell out. Final balance is due at 90 days prior to departure.
Do you have an incentive for group travel? How many people constitutes a group? Yes! Get 8 people in a branded tour and earn a free position for your clients. 8 guests constitutes a group.
If there a reduced rate for Travel Agents? Absolutely. Travel Agents receive special, massively-reduced rates on our tours. We also periodically feature FAM trips and love when agents travel with us.
Does Story run specials for bookings made outside of say 6 months? 9 months? Yes, we have many promotions throughout the year. The earlier the booking, the more savings your clients will enjoy.
Deposits are refundable? Yes, up until 90 days prior to trip departure date.
