Vacation.com Conference: Hotel Elite and World Connect Programs Launched

Hotel Elite, Vacation.com’s newest hotel program, featuring contracted space with negotiated rates and higher commissions, was introduced by Vacation.com during its 10th Annual Conference in Las Vegas. The new program can generate commissions of 13 to 15 percent for agents and expands sales opportunities in the luxury vacation market.

"Affluent customers are the best clients as they tend to remain loyal to an agent who serves them well," said  Steve Tracas, president and CEO of Vacation.com. “Hotel Elite is designed to stack the cards in our members’ favor by exceeding client expectations, while increasing the agent’s commission as well.”

Travelers booked through Hotel Elite will receive an enhanced experience at approximately 100 of the world’s most luxurious properties including room upgrades, free breakfast, early/late check-in when available and local offices in nearly every major city to assist vacationers.

All properties in the Hotel Elite luxury portfolio can be booked centrally through Vacation.com preferred supplier Travel Bound at 800-316-3136. A complete listing of the four and five star properties is available on the Hotel Elite portal on AgentNet.

Vacation.com also launched its new World Connect program, designed to create commissionable, personally tailored experiences for clients via one toll-free number without having to contact multiple overseas companies. World Connect offers concierge level support in 40 destination cities. Vacation.com members can use World Connect by calling 800-316-3136.
