Travel Leaders Group (www.travelleadersgroup.com) is introducing the latest addition to its suite of hotel programs. It's publicly unveiling its Select Hotel Program, which is reserved exclusively for its top luxury-producing travel agencies and their clients.
The program features 447 of the world’s most prestigious hotel and resort properties, and all participating hotels offer competitive rates along with complimentary breakfasts, special VIP amenities, early check-ins and late check-outs (when available) and room upgrades (upon availability).
The program was soft-launched in tandem with theTravel Leaders Group Worldwide Hotel Program, introduced earlier this year. The group introduced a Stream Prepaid Hotel program in 2011.
“As we began building our suite of hotel programs, we knew that perhaps the most critical, integral crowning jewel we needed was an essential luxury component.," said Barry Liben, CEO, Travel Leaders Group. "Travel Leaders Group’s Select Hotel Program provides our top luxury-oriented agencies – with a proven track record of delivering high-yielding clients – with direct access to over 400 of the world’s most luxurious, premier properties that understand the tremendous value behind the Travel Leaders Group name."
“We’re enormously proud that in recognition of the number of sophisticated guests we’re able to bring to these distinguished hoteliers that every single one of them is offering excellent commissionable rates, complimentary breakfasts, VIP amenities and much more," Liben said.
