Sydney, 9 September 2019, Rezdy, the world’s leading independent booking and distribution platform for tour and activity operators, is excited to announce a new partnership with premium global travel company, Luxury Escapes.
The partnership will provide operators the opportunity to get their product in front of a premium audience looking for first class experiences. From Luxury Escapes’ perspective, a partnership with Rezdy will enable them to build relationships with thousands of Rezdy’s operators in more than 100 countries to further build out their extensive range of global itineraries.
Luxury Escapes has more than 3 million members across the globe that seek unique or exclusive travel experiences. Beyond that, its’ active ‘refer a friend’ program demonstrates the value of operators connecting with this partner not just now, but also for booking growth in the future.
An exciting first for many operators is Luxury Escapes’ ‘pay by points’ option on their Australian site with Qantas Points as an accepted payment method.
“We’re constantly adding new distribution opportunities for operators using Rezdy’s B2B Marketplace, and our partnership with Luxury Escapes is a great example of this. In each case, we aim to make the connection process as simple and effective as possible so operators can get back to doing what they love. Rezdy’s independence allows us to have unbiased conversations with multiple distribution partners, from global OTAs through to local agents, hotel concierges and tourist information centres. That approach has enabled us to create the sector’s largest distribution marketplace, something we’re very proud of” said Chris Atkin, Rezdy CEO.
“Experiences marks another step forward in Luxury Escapes’ goal to create more revenue generating opportunities for our travel partners while providing customers with a more complete holiday experience – it’s a win/win.” said Luxury Escapes CEO Cameron Holland.
“With over 50% of our members naming ‘unique, personally curated experiences’ as the number one travel trend they were excited about, we knew we had a specific opportunity to build a product to deliver these once-in-a-lifetime experiences” Cameron continues. “By creating a smarter way for travellers to immerse themselves in their destinations, we’re recognising that luxury is increasingly about personalisation and the opportunity to travel in a way that works for you.”
