The travel distributor has secured additional availability between July and September 2015 and fantastic rates for premium room categories.

Global travel distributor GTA is urging travel agents around the world to inspire clients – the travelling public – to upgrade their accommodation with a new global campaign. GTA has secured additional availability during one of the busiest times of the year and fantastic rates for premium room categories, to help put the best hotel stays within the reach of any traveller’s budget.

Retail and wholesale travel agents who book trips that depart between 1 July and 30 September 2015 can take advantage of free upgrades, stay 4 pay 3 deals or up to 50% savings* in premium category rooms and executive suites in the most popular destinations in the world. 500 offers are available at three- to five-star hotels in more than 30 locations from Amsterdam and Bangkok to Tokyo and Vienna with New York and Paris between. Press, e-marketing and online banner advertising, as well as direct mail and agent incentives will raise awareness among the world’s travel trade.

Martin Jones, Senior Vice President for Global Sourcing and Commercial Management at GTA says: “Over four decades, GTA has been finding accommodation that travellers want to enjoy in the destinations they want to visit. Hotels know they can rely on us to bring them business from established and growing markets and so are willing to give us great deals at one of the busiest times of their year.”

GTA has used its long-standing relationships with the world’s biggest hotel brands – and its power to bring them customers from around the world – to secure exclusive availability for the campaign.

“Agents can take advantage of the great deals that hotels have given us to make their clients’ trips that extra bit special,” adds Flavia Alzetta, GTA’s Senior Vice President for Global Sales & Marketing. “Our online booking sites – Travel Bound, TravelCube and GTA wholesale – give agents access to these unbeatable allotments at competitive prices, coupled with our unrivalled terms and conditions, service and support. It’s a great chance for agents to help travellers have an unforgettable time.”
