A new travel agent partner, TourSales.com, brings additional revenue to travel agents through commissionable bookings of day tours and activities to independent, non-escorted travelers.
The new Florida-based company, which focuses solely on day tours and activities, was founded by Mike Bonner and Brad Miller, also co-founders of Shore Excursions Group, now the largest shore excursion company in the world.
By partnering with TourSales.com, travel agents can earn commissions that are among the highest in the industry – between 10 and 15 percent based on volume – with minimal time investment. Travel agents already familiar with Shore Excursions Group are assured that vacationers receive a high-quality tour experience. TourSales.com vets each land operator with a quality assurance program that includes extensive research and detailed reviews, resulting in a wide array of tours with exceptional value. Tours are delivered by local experts in each destination with decades of experience.
In addition, travel agents’ customers benefit from 24-hour support and a full money-back guarantee.
TourSales.com’s extensive experience in the cruise industry and global tour operations allows them to leverage established relationships with ground operators for the new company, resulting in a vast collection of 2,500 popular and special interest tours in destinations throughout the world.
“We have a global footprint, and a large, healthy, vibrant source of providers,” said Mike Bonner.
“Our sophisticated technology and successful partner model brings travel agents new income from the $28 billion tours and activities market,” added Brad Miller.
In addition to offering general interest tours, TourSales.com responds to special interests focusing on four tour types: Exclusive Tours, offering a smaller and more personalized experience; Scenic Tours for up-close access to spectacular environments; Cultural Tours for experiences of local customs, and Active Tours that appeal to adventuresome vacationers.
