New trade initiatives from Hurtigruten Expeditions

Hurtigruten Expeditions (HX) has rolled out a series of trade initiatives, including an Antarctica giveaway, increased commissions and a B2B help desk.

The initiatives, which were launched in honour of Travel Advisor Appreciation Day on May 1, aim to equip agents with the tools and resources necessary to excel in the rapidly growing expedition cruising sector.

A new Antarctica Giveaway, which will run throughout May, is offering travel advisors the chance to win an expedition. To enter, they simply need to join the new ‘HX Travel Partners, Americas’ Facebook page and register with its agent portal voyage. For every Antarctica cabin booked, agents will receive an additional 3 entries.

The cruise operation has also introduced an increased commission of 25% on all Antarctica bookings. Bookings must be made until August 31 for sailings scheduled from October 2024 to December 31 2025.

A B2B Help Desk is slated for May 6, too. The new phone line will be operational from 6am to 8pm PST from Monday to Friday. Advisors can find personalised support and offline assistance at 1-866-312-6781.

Other initiatives include a ‘Sell 5, Sail Free’ B2B incentive for bookings made until December 31 for trips in 2024 and 2025. Advisors can earn a complimentary voyage of up to 14 days, excluding itineraries with Machu Picchu.

Plus, the second season of the HXplore webinar series will launch on May 29. Agents can find an in-depth exploration of the expedition experience. 

Sheralyn Berry, General Manager for HX in the Americas, said: “We’re thrilled to unveil these new initiatives for our esteemed members of the trade as we approach Travel Advisor Appreciation Day. 

“At HX, we deeply value the tireless efforts and dedication of our partners and we’re committed to providing support to help them succeed.”
