Brightline rolls out agent portal, pays 20% commission

Brightline — soon to be Virgin Trains — rolled out a dedicated booking portal for travel agents with access to the lowest fares and a generous 20% commission.

The site is designed to incentivize agents to book the private rail service that currently connects downtown Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Construction connecting South Florida to Orlando is under way, with service expected to begin in 2022.

Train-To-Port Packages

Brightline’s Train-To-Port Packages bundle offerings, allowing clients to park their car, check in and check their luggage at Brightline stations before boarding the cruise at all three South Florida ports. The Train-To-Port Packages also include Lyft ride credits and a mimosa on board.

Further, travel professionals have access to the lowest published fares, access to manage reservations and self-service ticket changes, as well as monthly reporting provided by a dedicated Brightline account manager.

‘Valued travel advisors are adopting the ease in which Brightline can connect clients from the legendary resorts of Palm Beach to downtown Miami and the “Cruise Capital of the World,”’ said Marcia Lowther, SVP sales for Brightline. ‘Agent partners can now enjoy an advanced, easy-to-use online tool and recommend our carefree option for holidays, milestone celebrations, special events and more.’

The latest amenities and accessibility

Brightline stations and rail cars feature the latest amenities. All are equipped with high-speed Wi-Fi, power and USB outlets at every seat as well as luggage storage. Brightline is fully accessible and exceeds ADA compliance standards.
