Small Luxury Hotels of the World launches preferred agency programme
Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) has launched a new preferred agency programme to bolster its ties with the trade.
A total of 360 hand-picked agencies have been invited to join the withIN programme, with affiliated agents able to enjoy best available rates (10% commission on standard rooms and 15% on suites) and special benefits like room upgrades, early check-in and complimentary Wi-Fi.
WithIN is now bookable via the GDS and the SLH Voice reservations team. A dedicated travel agent website is expected to launch in 2020.
“We strongly believe in investing in our partnership approach to working with the best travel agencies so our relationship with them continues to go from strength to strength,” said Carsten Lima, vice president of sales.
“With the launch of withIN, we are making this partnership approach bigger and better, so that selected travel agencies working with us benefit from even more opportunities to promote and sell our participating SLH hotels regardless of luxury network affiliation”.
Over 230 SLH hotels have joined the programme, including new properties The Celino South Beach in Miami, Ovolo The Valley in Brisbane and Finca Serena in Mallorca (pictured).
Affiliated agencies so far include RASK Travel, Smartflyer and Protravel International.
