Crossroads Tours International Holds Prices on its 2014 Escorted Tours & Cruise Packages to Turkey and Greece, Extends 15% Agent Commission

Expanded Selection Of Biblical Tours and Specially Designed Family Packages Among the New Offerings

New York, NY (November 11, 2013) It’s “steady as she goes” for Turkey and Greece tour specialist Crossroads Tours International’s 2014 program. Company CEO Erol Anay has announced that the company will not increase prices on any of its extensive selection of escorted tours and cruise packages for 2014. In addition, Crossroads Tours is extending its introductory offer to travel agents of 15% commission on all land packages to the end of next year.

Commenting about the company’s price freeze and high commission level, Anay said, “Since our transition from DMC to tour operator only began this year, we know we have to be as competitive as possible in terms of our prices and commissions to win travel agents’ trust, and provide them an incentive to recommend our tours. We look forward to continuing to grow our business in the North American market and expanding our relationship with travel agents.”

‘Crossroads’ escorted tours, cruise vacations, and modular independent packages are ideal for first time travelers to Turkey as well as repeat visitors who want to explore a particular region of the country. There are also escorted tours featuring Greece and Greece & Turkey, plus island-hopping cruise packages in Greece.

New Biblical Tours and Special Family Packages

As a result of the increased interest in the Crossroads’ Biblical Tours, the company has added two new packages for 2014: a 10-day “Biblical Turkey” tour and a 15-day tour delving into the Christian heritage and biblical treasures of Turkey and Greece. And recognizing the growing popularity of family and cross-generational travel, Crossroads’ 2014 program will also feature new packages specially designed for adults and accompanying children. The packages will combine visits to must-see historical attractions and cultural experiences with recreational activities and other diversions appealling to children.

New “Create Your Own Tour” Option

Crossroad Tours’ 2014 program will also feature a new, modular “Create Your Own Tour” option.
