Hotel Travel Agent Programs

By | May 19, 2017

In recent years, as more and more hotels are interested in dealing directly with travel agents we decided to set up a page specifically catering to hotel travel agent programs. The programs have been growing with educations, training and best of all travel agent benefits. This list isn’t meant to be comprehensive but please let us know if we are missing a hotel travel agent program that you think should be listed. As hotel trade programs constantly evolve we may be missing some information, just pass it along if we are. Our reviews are meant to be objective. We are not in anyway compensated for these travel agent program reviews. There

There are a wide range of travel agent hotel incentive, loyalty and rewards programs out there. The trade offs can be that for a small hotel travel agents might have more leverage in negotiating top-tier incentives, if they can bring the business. Large hotel programs typically offer more training but can be one size fits all to travel agencies.
