Riviera Travel has announced it will make a £150 contribution towards its door-to-door home pickup service for 2023 European river cruise bookings. It applies to all European river cruise itineraries of seven nights or more.
The offer is exclusively available to the trade and is available from July 3-31, on bookings made through Riviera. It can be applied to itineraries including the Seine, Rhone, Rhine, Danube and Douro.
The door-to-door transfer allows guests to go directly from their UK pick-up point to a departure airport or airport hotel, via private car.
It forms part of a wider service exclusively available to Riviera’s river cruise and UK-escorted tour guests, which was launched earlier this year.
The service provides additional optional extras including the choice of more regional airports and alternative airlines, and pre- or post-cruise hotel stays.
Riviera has also re-introduced its peaks trade incentive – all agents making a river cruise or escorted tour booking are automatically entered into a weekly prize draw to win an iPad 128GB pro, worth £899.
A weekly winner will be selected at random across July.
Tom Morgan, Head of Trade for the UK & Ireland at Riviera Travel, said: “The optional extra services we launched have had excellent feedback from agents, and we wanted to introduce an offer which is trade-exclusive to further encourage interest and take-up.
“Home transfers have proved particularly popular, so we’re making a sizable contribution to aid sales and ensure customers get the best possible value-for-money.
“The transfers allow people to sit back and relax before their holiday has even started, and with £150 taken off the price, they really are a win-win for anyone considering taking a river cruise this year.
“And we’re very pleased to announce our iPad incentive is back in July. It proved a real hit during peaks, and we even extended it into March, such was the positive feedback we received from the trade.
“So we’re offering another four iPads across the month as part of our weekly prize draw, and we can’t wait to visit our lucky winners in store.”
