As a reward for routing business on our services and as an incentive to increase this business, Irish Ferries is delighted to offer Irish Travel Agents concessions for travel on our Ireland – Britain and Ireland – France services.
Our Travel Agency Staff concession scheme is designed to encourage agency staff members to support Irish Ferries and to reward agency staff by way of increased levels of concessionary travel depending on the value of business your agency does with Irish Ferries.
The More Business You Give Us, The Better Concession We Give You!
Travel Agencies have been divided into four categories depending on the revenue the agency achieved with Irish Ferries in the previous calendar year.
You will have noted when inputting your Agent reference and Password that your category is shown after your agency name. Then simply refer to the applicable category/route/time of year to see the maximum discount you can expect to gain subject to availability. You will note that the best selling agencies receive the best concessions. So if your Agency is not in the platinum section here’s another reason to switch those bookings to Irish Ferries.
