Tourico Holidays has expanded its partnership with Points, the loyalty currency management company, adding 100,000 hotels worldwide to the Points Travel platform.
Points Travel is a travel e-commerce platform designed specifically for the loyalty industry. It is designed to help loyalty programmes increase their revenues from hotel sales while offering new redemption options to its members.
As a result of the new tie-up with Tourico, travel partners of global loyalty programmes can now offer their members the ability to purchase exclusively-negotiated hotel rates using their points, miles, or a combination of loyalty currency and money.
“Adding Points as a distribution partner is another example of Tourico’s commitment to gaining visibility and brokering more rooms for our hotel suppliers around the world,” said Jason Soss, president of global business development for Tourico. “And with nearly 100,000 new hotels to choose from, loyalty programmes have yet another reason to integrate Points Travel.”
“This expansion of our inventory partnership with Tourico Holidays is the latest example of Points’ ongoing investments in delivering loyalty programme partners access to even more attractive hotel rates – leading to increased earning opportunities and higher-value redemptions for loyalty program members around the world,” said Rob MacLean, CEO Points.
A global wholesaler, Tourico Holidays provides travel inventory to more than 4,900 clients in 100 countries.
