Travel Leaders Group and American Express are launching a new travel benefit program to select Gold Card members in the United States and expanding opportunities for all card members to redeem loyalty points.

The news was revealed to media at the Travel Leaders Group EDGE Conference, which is taking place in Las Vegas this week.

Under the program, Travel Leaders Group is introducing “The Travel Collection by Travel Leaders Group, a special benefit for Gold Card Members.”

This exclusive, invite-only event focused on the luxury travel market brings together world-class travel agency owners and managers with the most opulent, luxury suppliers to cultivate collaboration, share insights, and help carve a path into the future of luxury travel.

It works like this, according to officials: U.S. Consumer Gold and Business Gold Card members can gain access to The Travel Collection by calling a Travel Leaders Group travel agent. The Travel Collection will provide discount offers on international and domestic flights, value-added benefits at select lodging establishments, shipboard credits on cruises and discounts on escorted and vacation packages.

An important component of the program is that Travel Leaders Group travel agents will be able to book select American Express travel services, and also redeem Membership Rewards points on behalf of their clients, and earn a commission doing so.

A select number of travel agents are beta-testing the program right now; it is expected to be launched to additional Travel Leaders Group travel agents later this year.
