Jules Verne offers Nile cruise to agents as brochure launched

Jules Verne is offering agents the chance to win a cruise along the Nile as the escorted tour specialist promotes its new Egypt brochure.

Agents will be entered into a prize draw if they make a Jules Verne Egypt booking by October 31 and submit their booking reference and name via email to agents@vjv.co.uk.

The incentive, which is the biggest since the operator opened up to the trade in January, has been timed to celebrate a brochure featuring five new tours.

Jules Verne business and communications manager Abbey Renshaw said: “Our agent partners have been very supportive of Jules Verne since we launched to the trade earlier this year and as a thank you we are excited to give away a Nile cruise for two, including flights, to agents who book an Egypt tour with us over the next two months.”

The new tours are Lake Nasser & The Nile, Classic Week on the Nile, The Timeless Nile by Royal Steamer, Gems of Cairo and Leisurely Luxor.

The additions follow a 78% increase in Jules Verne bookings to Egypt over the past two years, according to the small group escorted tour specialist.

Renshaw said: “When I meet agents up and down the country, we often talk about the unique offering of Egypt for their customers.

“Feedback also tells us that customers perceived Egypt as a bucket list and ‘otherworldly’ destination with something new to discover around every corner, yet they are always pleasantly surprised it is only a short flight away.

“This timeless attraction to Egypt is why we’re excited to bring five new tours to our existing offering in Egypt and along the Nile, including tours on Lake Nasser which is the icing on the cake.”

The brochure also has features including an introduction to the local experts, details of Jules Verne’s sustainability journey, recommendations on the best things to do and see, and a deep-dive into Nile cruise vessel SS Misr.
