The model for obtaining additional services by subscription, which is widespread in digital services and banking, first appeared in domestic tourism. Vodokhod launched the first service in the history of the cruise market in Russia, which allows you to travel along rivers and receive privileges not only for cruises, but also for other services under special conditions from program partners. We figured out what was what.
DISCOUNT FOR SUBSCRIPTION CRUISES: FROM 8% TO 30%
The program will be most beneficial for regular guests on river boats. One of the biggest benefits of the Vodokhod.Pro subscription, which Vodokhod launched this season, will be premium discounts on the company's tourism products.
New customers immediately after activating the subscription will receive a 3% discount on all cruises , and after the first round of any duration, it will automatically increase to 8%. The number of tours at a discount within the framework of the subscription program is not limited.
By subscribing, tourists also get access to closed sales of cruises and tours from the Vodokhod company, where discounts reach up to 30%. And in the absence of free cabins for the desired flights, the owners of the subscription will always be in priority on the “Waiting List”, the first to receive the necessary information and, accordingly, will have time to make a purchase before others.
For those who are already a client company and is registered in the Vodohod.Bonus loyalty program, special conditions are also provided. When subscribing, the current regular customer discount, which varies from 5 to 6% for different customers, is automatically increased to 8%.
At the same time, the Vodokhod.Pro subscription discount can be combined with other company discounts, such as early booking, promotional codes, etc. True, there are exceptions – a group discount, discounts for certain categories of citizens, etc., so you need to find out these points in advance.
Moreover, the participants of the Vodokhod.Bonus program, thanks to the subscription, will receive more bonus points – 3.5% of the tour fares and increased accrual of bonus points for promotional tours (under the terms of each specific promotion) – up to 10%. Also, during the subscription period, customers are protected from points burning and status reduction.
