Travel Impressions Partners With Villas Of Distinction

WHY IT RATES: It’s like two All-Star teams merging together to enhance what is already a great product. – Rich Thomaselli, TravelPulse Senior Editor

The Villa Experience by Travel Impressions is re-launching with a greater reach and range of options as well as a brand-new, user-intuitive website as Travel Impressions enters into a partnership with Villas of Distinction®, one of the leading names in international villas. The transition of operations for TI’s villa arm will be a smooth and seamless process with no gaps in service levels or available inventory.

In fact, the booking process will remain exactly the same to further guarantee a hassle-free back-end management changeover. Travel agents will dial into the same line they have always used and will be greeted with “The Villa Experience” by a knowledgeable villa expert. Reservations made prior to the new partnership will also be serviced by Villas of Distinction with a team specializing in TI systems and operations. The generous commission levels travel agents enjoy on villa products also will not change.

Agents are encouraged to visit the newly revamped to get acquainted with Travel Impressions’ enhanced villa product line. “You’ll find the browsing experience much improved, and that inventory now includes exotic destinations like trendy Croatia and exclusive Mauritius for even more exciting options across the globe,” said Jeff Clarke, president of Travel Impressions.

“Along with an enhanced selection and an improved website, travel agents will continue to receive the award-winning customer service that lies at the center of all Travel Impressions bookings,” added Clarke.

Another excellent reason to visit the new site of The Villa Experience immediately and book is a limited time LoyalTI First bonus point offer of 10,000 points per booking for all reservations made in the first two months of this partnership. These points can be redeemed toward a wide variety of rewards from consumer electronics to other merchandise via Travel Impressions’ electronic Folio Reward Catalogs. Any booking made by July 9, 2016 will be eligible for this promotion.

“We have the utmost respect and appreciation for our travel agent partners and are very excited about the opportunity to service Travel Impressions’ agent community,” said Steve Lassman, vice president of villa product and agency relations for Villas of Distinction. “Our teams of Villa Specialists and Concierges are here to assist agents in providing their clients with impeccable service and the planning of a fully-customized villa vacation from start to finish.”
