Signature Travel Network has launched its new consumer-facing hotel booking engine. The platform, an initiative created in partnership with Freedom Travel Technologies, includes all of Signature’s over-1,000 preferred hotel and resort partners. This will allow an agency’s clients to book their own travel through consultants’ websites while still guaranteeing the amenities and commission.
Consumers booking their hotel stay at one of Signature’s partner hotels and resorts around the world will receive benefits such as: breakfast for two daily, a dining or resort credit, spa credits, complimentary round of golf, airport transfers, in-room gifts and welcome amenities, VIP welcome and more.
The need for Signature Travel Network’s hotel booking engine derived from the trend of consumers booking travel online themselves through third-party affiliates. With this new tool, consumers have access to all the information while still working with the consultants to receive the additional benefits and be aware of any restrictions outright.
