WESTON, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--A new travel partner for the lodging industry, TourSales.com, brings untapped ancillary revenue to hotel companies through commissionable, online bookings of day tours and activities.
“Hotel guests historically purchase tours directly through the complimentary services of their hotels or through other online providers.”
Hotel guests can now book day tours and activities through hotel-branded websites which integrate the ecommerce booking engine of TourSales.com. Guests can book tours and activities prior to arriving in their destination, allowing hotels to capture revenue before guests purchase elsewhere upon arrival.
TourSales.com’s vast collection of 2,500 popular and special interest tours can also be marketed to guests during their hotel stays through reservations agents, concierges, or any other designated hotel department. Hotels earn commissions that are among the highest in the industry: For each booking, TourSales.com pays top commissions -- between 10 and 15 percent based on volume.
The new Florida-based tour company was founded by Mike Bonner and Brad Miller, co-founders of Shore Excursions Group in 2009, now the largest shore excursions company in the world. Their combined 40 years of experience in the cruise industry and global tour operations allows them to cement established relationships with ground operators worldwide.
TourSales.com offers a key to unlocking revenue sources beyond hotel room rates. “Our sophisticated technology and successful partner model offer the lodging industry an untapped share of the $28 billion tours and activities market,” explains Brad Miller. “Hotel guests historically purchase tours directly through the complimentary services of their hotels or through other online providers.”
Hotel companies are assured that guests receive a high-quality product comparable to their own brands. TourSales.com vets each land operator by conducting a quality assurance program that includes extensive research and reviews from consumers, resulting in a wide array of tours with exceptional value in worldwide destinations.
Tours are delivered by local experts in each destination with decades of experience. TourSales.com responds to special interest trends by focusing on four tour types: Exclusive Tours, offering a smaller and more personalized experience; Scenic Tours for up-close access to spectacular environments; Cultural Tours for experiences of local customs, and Active Tours that appeal to adventuresome vacationers. In addition, hotel guests benefit from TourSales.com’s 24-hour support and a full money-back guarantee.
