A new website designed to help agents book ferries has been developed by AFerry.co.uk.
The AFerryAgent.com trade site cover 80 operators and more than 1,200 routes across Europe.
Agents can earn commission on ferry bookings on a range of sailings which include the Greek islands, across the Mediterranean to the Balearics, Corsica, Sardinia and North Africa or Dover to Calais.
The site offers instant live availability, deals and immediate confirmations.
A one-stop price comparison facility enables agents to access the best rates and most convenient crossings for their clients.
Special offers and deals are fed through the site which is available 24 hours a day, avoiding calls to ferry companies.
A spokesman said: “Aferry.co.uk realised that agents shy away from ferries as there are so many different companies with a myriad of prices and panoply of different reservation systems – where to start?
“The one booking system is used for all the companies so agents can reserve online and confirm reservations immediately and all reservations are commissionable.”
