What are Hotel Negotiated Rates?
Negotiated Hotel Rates are exactly
like the sound. Also known as Preferred Rates, which are some of the best hotel
rates that exist! Preferred is a term used in the GDS to describe rates
negotiated by a hotel company with a specific client. Negotiated Rates are
special hotel rates given to us by the hotel vendors because of our superior
relationships and track history record with them. The hotel vendors guarantee us
that our Negotiated Rates are lower than any public distribution channel.
Our clients are guaranteed “last room availability”, that allow us to
secure your reservations even if the hotel is reaching full capacity. Some of
our clients have specific hotel vendors they want to use and feel these are the
best hotel rates because of the consistency they bring to them. These Preferred
low hotel rates are permanent in our hotel database and are also offered on
weekends and holidays.
The average vacation will save a few hundred dollars from what they would
normally have to pay if they were booking on their own through any other
distribution channel. You will be provided with a “walk policy” agreement that
the hotel vendors offer, and if needed will provide alternate accommodations for
at least equal or same value if the hotel is completely sold out. Views of these
low hotel rates in the GDS are restricted to the public, and the rate may be
booked only after entry of either an agent or client identification code.
Generally these special hotel rates require a one night stay deposit to hold
your reservation and you have anywhere from 24 to 72 hours to cancel. These low
hotel rates are significantly reduced from anything the general public has
access to. These special hotel rates are responsible for the growth of our
company and our loyal customer retention rate. Upon arrival at the check in
counter, the hotel will see that you have a Negotiated Rate with your
reservation. In some cases the hotel vendors may upgrade your room upon arrival
for no extra charge. With all these advantages towards the client, you can see
why some our clients favor these as the best hotel rates we offer.
