Travel Depot, the travel agency we book through, keeps 30% of

the commissions received from their travel vendors and passes,

up to, 70% back to you through the cruise travel club.

The increased booking volume = higher commissions. The 30%

they keep helps cover their fixed expenses. Higher commissions

means more savings to you. Travel Depot is able to provide this

for The Villages Cruise Travel Club, based on the Cruise Club’s

volume of bookings.

The savings you receive on a cruise booking is about the same as a

travel agent would receive working for a travel agency.
