ORLANDO, Fla. – January 21, 2015 – Tourico Holidays, a global leader in wholesale travel brokerage, today announced that it has increased its ‘book by the door’ inventory of vacation homes in key ski, beach and city destinations – providing travel agents with access to the widest selection of elite vacation home properties in the U.S.
Tourico ushered in the ‘book by the door’ vacation home offering in March of 2014, providing resellers with full transparency during the booking process – including real-time pricing and availability. Travel agents can now search and book thousands of new vacation rentals in destinations across the United States – including Lake Tahoe, Orlando, New York City and South Beach – enabling their travelers to experience penthouse living in Manhattan or beach-side relaxation in Florida.
“Travel Agents can now sell villas, cottages, condominiums and chalets at unbeatable prices, and with a margin of up to 20 percent,” said Steve Caron, Vice President of Vacation Rentals for Tourico Holidays. “It’s really a win-win. Travelers stay at a personalized home at prices as low as $38 per night, and agents have another convenient, marketable product at their fingertips.”
The vacation home rental industry is currently estimated at $87 billion and is rapidly growing as leisure travelers look for more unique experiences and better value for their travel dollar. As a leader in the industry, Tourico Holidays plans to add another 10,000 units in the United States alone within the next month.
“With the largest inventory of vacation rental homes in the United States, agents can now offer their customers a more unique – and often more affordable – alternative to a hotel,” said Steve. “By increasing our domestic inventory of ‘book by the door’ rentals, we’re providing travel agents an opportunity to provide greater satisfaction to their customers and sell a product with high margins.”
