Most Travel Industry codes are for big international brands – it’s difficult to update offers for all small independent hotels as much as we’d like to. Also big chains can offer codes for use online which is what we all prefer – for speed of checking. These chains also have the benefit of ensuring their staff check your travel ID at check-in so no-one is abusing our well deserved discounts (which does happen sadly).
So we’ve been talking to a couple of big online travel agencies. They would love to offer additional discounts to their hotel rates for those that work in the UK Travel Industry. After all – they work in the industry too!
However, there is a worry that this could be abused by those who do not work in the industry, so we would need to create a ‘closed shop’ – probably via those who subscribe to our newsletter list with work email, create a closed Facebook group, or purely promote via ‘closed’ facebook groups like Travel Gossip (well worth joining if you’re UK based)
So, what do you think?
Have a look at the hotel range that Hotels.Com offer for your next trip – would you be attracted to getting additional discounts from a verified members only section of Travel Industry Discounts? Or would you prefer us to focus on big chains?
