NEWS TTG TOP 50 TRAVEL AGENCIES


MEET THE SPONSORS


The sponsors of TTG Top 50 Travel Agencies 2020 on why they back the event and hopes for the year


CATEGORY: NORTHERN IRELAND Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV), Ryan Carroll


Why are you sponsoring TTG Top 50 2020? With 80% of CMV’s bookings coming from the trade, we highly value our travel agent support. Therefore, we decided to sponsor TTG Top 50 to give CMV the opportunity to be involved in recognising and rewarding top agents.


Three key messages for agents in 2020:


1


For many years, CMV has offered a warm


welcome to our Irish guests with a wide range of no-fly cruising holidays from Ireland (Dublin and Cobh), which have grown in popularity.


2


For 2020, we are extending the CMV


experience with summer cruises from Belfast in Northern Ireland, onboard the Magellan. This mid- sized ship offers a wide range of facilities, spacious lounges and expansive deck areas while retaining a more intimate atmosphere. Our more traditional cruise experience is a popular alternative to the mega resort-style ships built today. Included in the fares are full-board accommodation, afternoon


teas, late-night snacks, daytime activities, self- service tea/coffee (6am to midnight), porterage of luggage from port to cabin and port taxes.

There’s an eight-night cruise departing Belfast


on 24 June 2020, sailing to the Isles of Scilly, Guernsey and along the River Seine to Rouen. This is followed on 2 July 2020 with a nine-night voyage to the Norwegian Fjords calling at Bergen, Flam, Eidfjord and Greenock for Glasgow and Edinburgh. Plus, there’s a two-night weekend mini-cruise. These cruises are on offer with savings of up to 50%. Two-night mini-cruise fares start from £139pp based on two adults sharing an inner cabin.

Sponsor: Newmarket and A-Rosa River Cruises, Newmarket’s Stuart Cowell


Why are you sponsoring Top 50 2020? Newmarket Holidays and A-Rosa River Cruises are delighted to announce that we have joined forces to sponsor TTG’s prestigious Top 50 Travel Agencies programme once again. These awards capture the imagination of both the agents and the operators. Delving into what is needed – and ultimately what works – for agents on “the frontline” is critical for both A-Rosa and Newmarket. This is why A-Rosa River Cruises launched its own UK trade team in 2019 and Newmarket has expanded its sales team to six. I can’t wait to meet the nominees in London and host them at the ceremony in April.


Three key messages for agents in 2020:


1


A-Rosa’s fabulous new ship A-Rosa Alva, which


launched last year on the Douro river, will welcome UK guests for the first time in 2020. The Douro in Portugal is one of Europe’s most scenic waterways and a river cruise is the perfect way to explore the region. With this, and all our other


itineraries, Newmarket Holidays offer a choice of departures from 15 airports.


2


With our Premium Inclusive packages,


your clients need not worry about budgeting onboard, as all premium spirits, beers and soft drinks are included. Guests also get to enjoy gourmet buffets with flexible dining times, plus use of the ship’s spa facilities.


3


To celebrate the new River Cruise brochure,


full of A-Rosa products, Newmarket Holidays is offering £25 per booking to agents on all river bookings made up to 29 February through our call centre or on Newmarket’s bookable agent portal.
