CCRA Travel Solutions reports that over 33,000 hotel properties from across the globe are now enrolled in the Worldwide Preferred Hotel Program by CCRA. While the program continues to expand its global footprint in 2014, it currently features hotel partners ranging from boutique properties to renowned chains in 270 countries and 6,550 cities.
The Worldwide Preferred Hotel Program by CCRA provides a platform to connect corporate, leisure and independent travel agents with a growing number of hotels that have agreed to offer preferred rates, with guaranteed commission and last room availability, virtually anywhere in the world. Through CCRA's preferred hotel program, travel agents also benefit from additional hotel partner offers that may include (but are not limited to) higher commissions, exclusive hotel amenities, last minute sales, and special deals on distressed inventory only available through CCRA. Some of the most competitive hotel rates available in the marketplace are offered to agents through CCRA booking channels, including rates that are as much as 25% off the Best Available Rate a consumer may find online.
CCRA also provides travel agents with an online directory to search for the more than 33,000 hotels worldwide enrolled in CCRA's 2014 Hotel Program: http://hoteldirectory.ccra.com/. This complimentary online resource allows travel professionals to search for a hotel by selecting a variety of filter options including destination city, specialty listings (such as all-inclusive, luxury, boutique hotels etc.), hotel chain, star ratings and exclusive amenities offered. Agents may then simply click on a hotel name or photo to access more detailed information, including the agent commission percentage, GDS booking codes, a local map of the hotel's location and more.
