The Planning Process
All successful corporate and incentive groups require the involvement
of a company travel manager. This professional is responsible for
designing the meetings and events the company desires onboard and
communicating booking details like the payment process, documentation
requirements, and dining requests to all participants.
With Vacations To Go, you will get a highly trained corporate and
incentive group specialist who will be your single point of contact
for the planning and booking process. Your group specialist will even
create a personalized webpage for your group where participants can
get answers to questions about the cruise.
Every corporate and incentive group must sign a contract with the
cruise line that covers the prices, amenities, terms, and conditions
for their group booking. As one of the largest cruise-selling agencies
in the world, we have strong buying power and access to competitive
rates on every ship which enables us to negotiate the best contract
on your behalf.
Businesses may be able to write off corporate cruises as a business
expense. We encourage you to verify this with your tax professional.
