Tourico Holidays, the world’s fastest growing wholesale travel brokerage company, today shared first-half data for 2016 revealing the company is on pace to broker more than 1.2 million hotel room nights through its airline partners in 2016 – a 50% increase since 2014.
Tourico currently works with more than 10 major airline carriers throughout the world, providing them with access to valuable hotel inventory that can be packaged and sold with flights, as well as other travel offerings.
“For the past 10 years, we’ve been able to help our airline partners open valuable new revenue streams by allowing them to bundle flights and hotels for virtually any destination in the world,” said Jason Soss, President of Global Business Development for Tourico Holidays. “So far in 2016, our airline clients are selling nearly 100,000 hotel room nights per month.”
Tourico Holidays’ airline partners – which serve over 700 destinations across six continents – are not only provided access to Tourico’s global hotel inventory, but also to a wide selection of cruises, car rentals, activities and more. The company currently offers access to over 120,000 hotels in over 4,500 cities, more than 25,000 vacation homes, 10,000 activities and transfers, and 25,000 car rental pick-up locations worldwide. Tourico also provides “ExclusiveDeals” – or pre-purchased hotel room blocks – that guarantee clients discounted rates of up to 60% off of retail.
Tourico Holidays also powers airline point redemption programs, allowing members to redeem rewards points on non-flight travel products. Additionally, the company provides travel products for employee benefit programs, enabling airline employees – who generally fly for free – to book other aspects of a trip.
“As a high-volume wholesale travel broker, Tourico Holidays has the unique ability to quickly provide suppliers with an incredible selection of travel product that can supplement their core business,” Soss said. “If a supplier is looking to diversify their offering, Tourico can do it for them at the flip of a switch.”
