Luxury villa rental and boutique hotel specialist Simpson Travel has announced the launch of a portal for travel advisors, as well as a new digital trade brochure with highlights of the operator’s properties for 2024.
The London-based tour operator offers villa and boutique hotel vacations to a range of Mediterranean destinations. As part of its commitment to the American market, Simpson Travel offers a specialist concierge service for U.S. travelers, with a dedicated local phone number (888-589-4147).
A key feature of the new portal is the option for travel advisors to reserve villas and hotels online and hold them for 24 hours. Advisors will also be able to download and print documentation including travel documents and invoices.
Hannah Naylor-Vane, head of trade sales, Simpson Travel, said “We’re delighted to be launching our new agent portal, which will enhance the experience for travel agents still further. Our 2024 program will be featuring a superb range of handpicked villas in Greece, Turkey, mainland France, Corsica, Mallorca and Italy as well as our selection of boutique adult-only and family-friendly hotels, which will be available for agents to book. We believe that the ability to hold properties for 24 hours—including some of our most sought-after villas—will be of particular benefit for the international market, as well as for home-workers and those working outside core office hours.”
“Our relationship with agents is going from strength to strength and we are committed to building this still further in 2024,” she added.
