How Does It Work? Here is a typical example: 1. A client books a cruise and asks about a pre- or post-cruise package they can do on their own or wants a private car and guide to sightsee in certain ports. 2. The client’s travel agent will fill out a very simple request form which can be found at http://www.wwexcursions.com/Contact.html 3. WorldWide Excursions will respond to you within one business day with your request status. A tour proposal with net pricing will be sent to you as soon as possible, usually within 3 business days. You can choose how much you wish to mark it up before sending it to your client. 4. Once finalized and accepted, payment is due from the travel agency. A confirmation letter with the client’s itinerary and tour operator emergency contact details will be sent to their agent.
