Collette recently unveiled a plan to ensure that travel consultants continue to receive commission regardless of whether a client cancels a trip. In addition to providing a full refund to the client if he or she cancels the tour for covered reasons, the Travel Protection Plan guarantees that travel consultants still receive full commission on the gross amount their client paid for the trip. Travelers who purchase the protection plan will also receive on-tour coverage for delays, medical issues and lost bags, among other protections.
“At Collette, we believe that agents’ most critical asset is their time and we believe it’s our responsibility to protect this resource,” said Dan Sullivan IV, director of sales for Collette. “Agents spend a lot of valuable time educating travelers and planning their next tour, but we know that unexpected instances in travelers’ lives can suddenly force them to cancel their trip. By protecting agents’ commissions, Collette’s Travel Protection plan gives both travelers and agents the peace of mind they deserve.”
