Program Details and Information

Cruise.com was established in 1998 and because of its rapid growth and the strong relationships that were quickly formed with our cruise line partners we were able to successfully launch our Host Agency Division that same year, offering our Independent Travel Professional affiliates the high commission levels and exclusive offers only found among companies with high sales volume, strength and stability. From the very beginning, we offered our affiliate members a 100% commission payout, unheard of at that time, and this flagship ‘Gold’ program still exists to this day.  Our slate of programs now provides multiple technology options and price points to provide flexible business solutions for independent contractors utilizing any number of business models. Overview of the program options available:
  • ‘Gold’ program - earn 100% commission.  Cost:  $39/month plus small invoice fee per booking deducted from commission.  (Invoice Fee:  $10 fee on invoices $600 or less; $25 fee on invoices $601 and higher.)
  • ‘Gold Plus’ program - earn 100% commission.  Includes a Hosted Consumer Website branded with your agency’s information with 6 backgrounds to choose from.  Cost:  $209/month plus small invoice fee per booking deducted from commission plus a one-time $350 Set-up Fee for the website.  (Invoice Fee: $10 fee on invoices $600 or less; $25 fee on invoices $601 and higher.)
