If you are electing to go with Shore Excursions Group please advise and ADVAIA will submit the request for them to white label the links with your company logo for shore excursions and Tour Sales. If you elect to go with ShoreTrips, you will need to go to the following link to set up your account with them. ShoreTrips sign up page. Once you complete this, please send us the link. Because you have the two options you will also need to update your SigNet account. The following link will take you to those instructions. Update Shore Excursion Provider. If there are any questions regarding shore excursions, please contact Signature directly.
  10. Signature is now offering flat rate pricing for Pocket Travel Consultant by Axus. In order for this to be available on your web site we will need you to contact Signature and subscribe and pay the applicable fee. Once you have completed this, please request that Signature send ADVAIA a notification by email that you have subscribed to this service.
  11. There are three options available for Signature's Travel Magazines. (1)The Ultimate Experiences Online, (2)The Travel Magazine Online or a link to a (3)Duel Landing Page that has both covers for your visitors to choose which one, or both, that they wish to view.

    You now have the option of featuring at least one of these assets on your website (1, 2 or 3).

    For most members, our recommendation would be to feature the new Dual Landing Page (3).

    If you generally participate in mailing either just The Travel Magazine or just Ultimate Experiences, our recommendation would be for you to just feature the corresponding publication on your website (Option #1 or Option #2).

    Please indicate to ADVAIA which of the 3 options you wish us to have on the new site.
  12. Provide ADVAIA with a list of office locations, phone numbers and hours of operation that will appear in the footer of your site
