Wendy Wu raises agent commission

Wendy Wu is increasing the commission it pays to agents by 0.5% from January 2018 to help offset the ban on passing on card fees.

It is also giving 15% commission for all online agents bookings made in October.

"Trade support is vital to Wendy Wu which is why we're taking this move to increase commissions during October for online bookings," said global sales director John Warr.

On the decision to increase commissions from January, he added: "We know that agents work in a competitive environment and so whilst the EU's Payment Services Directive 2 is good news for consumers the impact on agents, who can no longer pass on card fees to customers, will be considerable. Agents are our livelihood and so it's imperative that they are protected by us from this new legislation and can run their businesses profitably."

In addition, Wendy Wu is offering business class upgrades, including the current business class upgrade with Cathay Pacific (£199 per person, one way), on selected departures to China, Japan and Southeast Asia in 2018 when booked before October 31 2017.
