Fred. Olsen has launched its latest sales campaign offering three deals – ‘Three cruises for the price of two’, ‘Free tips and tipples’ and ‘Up to £100 per person cashback’.
The promotion runs until 2 March 2016 and has been designed to attract single cruise bookers, multiple cruise purchasers and both new-to-cruise and new-to-Fred. Olsen bookings.
Three cruises for the price of two
Guests who book three cruises at the same time with the same lead name across all voyages can benefit from the ‘Three Cruises for the Price of Two’ offer. The offer is valid on all 2016/17 itineraries excluding Black Watch’s W1610 ‘Arctic Explorer’ cruise. The cheapest voyage will be free of charge. This offer is not combinable with the ‘Free Tips and Tipples’ offer but is combinable with the ‘Up to £100 per person cashback’ offer.
Free tips and tipples
Fred. Olsen is also offering a ‘Free Tips and Tipples’ upgrade on cruises between five and 35 nights. This deal includes selected house wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks on-board, and Fred. Olsen will also pay guests’ gratuities. This offer excludes Black Watch‘s W1610 ‘Arctic Explorer’ cruise and ‘Grand Voyage’ sectors. The offer is not combinable with the ‘Three Cruises for the Price of Two’ offer but is combinable with the ‘Up to £100 per person cashback’ offer.
Up to £100 per person cashback
Fred. Olsen is offering up to £100 per person cashback on 20 selected cruises in 2016, when booked before 31 January 2016. The cashback is given as an on-board account credit for use during the cruise, and is non-transferable. Any unused spending credit may be claimed as cash on board at the end of the cruise. This offer is combinable with both the offers above.
Nathan Philpot, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “Research has shown that 53 percent of cruisers take more than one cruise holiday per year. Therefore, with our great-value offer of ‘Three Cruises for the Price of Two’, our loyal guests can plan ahead for 2016/17 by booking all of their holidays, knowing that they are making excellent savings. Our ‘Free Tips & Tipples’ upgrade also gives guests complete peace of mind, safe in the knowledge that almost everything is covered in the price of their holiday.”
Fred. Olsen has also enhanced its ‘Enjoyment Promise’. Guests sailing on their first-ever cruise can now book their next holiday while on the ship for a £1 per person deposit, which will be added to their on-board account. ‘Fred.’s Enjoyment Promise’ was launched in December 2013 as a means to give new guests the reassurance that, should they find that a cruise is not for them within the first 48 hours of the voyage, Fred. Olsen will arrange and pay for their flight back to the UK, plus refund the cost of their cruise.
In the 2016/17 cruise season, Fred. Olsen will set sail to over 200 destinations worldwide from ten convenient, regional departure ports – Dover, Southampton, Harwich, Tilbury, Falmouth (a new addition), Belfast, Liverpool, Greenock (Glasgow), Rosyth (Edinburgh) and Newcastle.
