We understand you have a choice when it comes to who you do business with. The best thing we can say is try us once and see what you think. We are confident our superior service, quick turnarounds, generous commissions and fantastic holidays will ensure that you will use us again and again. But if you still need more convincing, here are 5 reasons to give us a go.

We Are the Experts

Polar Routes only sells expedition cruises. Our knowledge is second-to-none and based on our own first-hand experience. It also means we are able to offer a wide range of products, sometimes not available anywhere else.

Truly Tailor-Made

Every cruise we offer is individual to your client and based on what suits them best, including the places they want to see and the things that are important to them. We work with more than 20 different operators and won’t shoehorn your client into a set itinerary because it’s easier for us.

We offer a wide range of accommodation from more basic expedition ships to luxury vessels which are more akin to floating 5* hotels. Getting what your client wants doesn’t have to cost the Earth. After their initial quotation, they are free to make as many changes as they like, until they are 100% happy.

Our Fantastic Polar Specialists

Our Polar Specialists really are the heart of our business and each one joins us based on rigorous criteria. You will have a single point of contact throughout your experience with us. All of our Polar Specialists are ready to go the extra mile for you, including making recommendations for your client’s time away and arranging special touches for when they are travelling.

First-Class Service

Travelling independently does not mean your clients are on their own. When they arrive into each country they will be met by one of our friendly, English-speaking guides who will make sure their arrival runs smoothly. We inspect all of the ships and products in our core programme to ensure there will only be nice surprises to greet your clients. Our programme of tours and excursions have been hand-selected to ensure they make a great value, a worthwhile addition to the holiday. All of our transport arrangements will be with an experienced driver, in a well-maintained vehicle.

We Care

Polar Routes was founded by directors Jessica Dennison and Martin Johnson. We have grown from nothing into a successful business, which is still growing today. We understand how vital it is to care for our clients and agent partners, as referrals and repeat business are vital to our success. This means we will always go the extra mile to deliver a holiday that exceeds your client’s expectations. See what our previous clients think about us on the independent review site, Trustpilot. We hope this gives you the confidence to entrust your client’s travel plans to us.
