Cruising Free Overview

A Cruising Free! Independent Agent sells cruise and land vacation travel to their friends, family, business associates, and anyone else who contacts you with a desire to experience either cruise or land vacation travel. The Cruising Free! Independent Agent works from their home (or another preferred place of business) and performs all the tasks necessary to sell cruise and land (tours) travel just as if they were sitting at the office.

There are five (5) very general steps that are involved in selling vacation travel. They are:

  • Perform marketing and advertising using contacts, flyers, business cards, telephone calls, social media, etc. such that prospective clients contact you wishing to purchase vacation travel...even creating groups for more profitability and growing your database from organizations you already belong to like your church, rotary, Elks, book club or other organization.
  • You then use industry specific online tools to find a cruise or land vacation that best suits the customers desire. Note that we provide FREE training for all online tools required.
  • Upon customer agreement, you then formally book the cruise or land package with the appropriate cruise line or tour operator. This can be done by any of the following means:
    • Using online computer based supplier booking tools.
    • Calling the Cruise Line or Tour Operator
    • Contacting our Cruising Free! support department or your Team Leader for guidance to walk you through the steps.
  • After booking the vacation, and throughout the lifecycle of the booking (the time from booking to when the customer actually travels), you will monitor the booking for any issues that may arise, including entering into our accounting system to get paid. Note: Our Customer Care department acts as another "pair of eyes" for basics, such as payment dates or supplier changes, and may communicate reminders to your clients.
  • And finally, when the customer returns from their vacation, you will receive payment from us via check or direct deposit in an amount commensurate with the agent's share of the commissionable amount earned for booking the vacation product. For more on this, please see the section Getting Paid
