Luxury Escapes will launch a new industry booking portal for travel agents around Australia, offering access to commissionable rates for its Limited Time Exclusive offers.
For a number of years, thousands of agents had been purchasing Luxury Escapes limited time packages and selling to customers for zero commission.
But the new move means agents can access not only Luxury Escapes hotel products, but also its bespoke tour and cruise product.
“We’ve always loved the trade and the ability to work with literally thousands of agents across Australia at scale is hugely exciting for us,” said Luxury Escapes CEO Adam Schwab.
“The launch of our new industry portal allows us to give access to agents to our very best product and importantly, pay agents for the incredible work they do helping customers every single day.”
The new Agent Hub is set to launch in March, with Chris Brandon, senior manager agency distribution at Luxury Escapes, saying they have long had huge demand from travel agents wanting to book their packages.
“We appreciate many Australian consumers have existing travel agent relationships and look forward to offering our amazing deals to a wider audience by way of travel agents across the country,” Brandon said.
