Brightline, soon to be Virgin Trains, this week announced the inception of a new Travel Advisor Program that will allow agents access to a dedicated booking portal. The site is designed to incentivize travel agents to book Florida’s leading transportation solution, while delivering elevated services and offerings to clients.
Brightline’s Travel Agent Program provides a generous 20% commission to registered travel agents when booking reservations on Brightline.com. Further, travel professionals have access to the lowest published fares, access to manage reservations and self-service ticket changes, as well as monthly reporting provided by a dedicated Brightline Account Manager.
“Valued travel advisors are adopting the ease in which Brightline can connect clients from the legendary resorts of Palm Beach to downtown Miami and the ‘Cruise Capital of the World,’” said Marcia Lowther, senior vice president of sales for Brightline. “Agent partners can now enjoy an advanced, easy-to-use online tool — and recommend our carefree option for holidays, milestone celebrations, special events, and more.”
The new Travel Agent Program also supports the company's Train-To-Port Packages, which bundle offerings together, allowing guests to park their car, check in, and check their luggage at Brightline stations before boarding the cruise at all three South Florida ports. The Train-To-Port Packages also include Lyft Ride credits and a mimosa onboard.
Brightline is the only privately owned, operated, and maintained rail system in the U.S. in more than 100 years, currently connecting downtown Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach. All of the pet-friendly stations and trains are equipped with high-speed WiFi, power and USB outlets at every seat, as well as bicycle and luggage storage.
Construction connecting South Florida to Orlando is currently underway, and service is expected to begin in 2022.
