Increase your income with ShoreToursGuides.com !
At ShoreTours we believe that partnering with travel agents is extremely important to the joint success of our businesses.
We are aware that you are in daily contact with travelers and cruise lines passengers and that you are in the best position to give them good advice regarding their destinations.
This is why we want to prioritize developing lasting relationships with partners like you.
You already sell cruise tickets with a margin which is not always sufficient.
We suggest that you increase your income by combining excursions with cruises that you already market.
What do we offer?
In addition to the sale of the cruise to your customers, you can also sell excursions from the ports of call visited during the customers cruise. This is not going to take you a lot of extra time but you will be able to increase your margin on the overall sale.
For each excursion sold, you receive a 5% commission.
And we also reward the most dynamic agents!
On a calendar year basis, as soon as you reach € 6,500 of sales on our site we grant you a "Gold bonus" of € 200 and your commission goes up to 9% for all the additional sales that you make until the end of the year.

This will avoid any further possible dispute. Once the tour booking is confirmed you will receive a confirmation where the guide's phone number will appear. This number is for emergency purposes only (problems with meeting the guide at agreed location for example). To contact your guide, just press or click the "contact a guide" buttons. You will find them on relevant pages. Then just ask your guide what you need to know or express your wishes. Our guides generally answer within 24/48 hours.

How are tours prices fixed?In most cases, the price is for the whole group., not per person. This means the tour price will be the same up to the maximum number of persons stated on tour page. However, where admission tickets to attractions are required, or where the number of people implies a vehicle of different capacity, the price may be adjusted when selecting the number of participants on the booking page. Please consult the "What's included" and "What's not included" sections, as well as the guide's comments on the tour page. For further assistance please contact customer support.

When and how do I receive my booking confirmation?As soon as the booking payment process is validated, you will receive a pre-confirmation within a few minutes. Your guide will then confirm availlability for the requested date and you will then receive the booking confirmation within 24/48 hours. Depending on the organization of the excursion you may be required to provide some additional information such as the age of the participants for example.
