Accor brands join new Travelport rates programme
Sofitel and Pullman now part of company's 'Lowest Public Rate' scheme
Accor’s Sofitel and Pullman brands have joined Travelport’s Lowest Public Rate programme, which offers agents the best possible rate on rooms.
The programme allows agents to see which hotels are part of the scheme when searching – and goes a step further than its Best Available Rate programme, which offers best rates on unrestricted stays.
“Joining Travelport’s Lowest Public Rate Programme is a great step forward for our hotel brands as it lets travel agents know that they are seeing the lowest possible rate, regardless of the booking conditions,” said Accor VP distribution travel agencies / meetings and events Ludovic Dupont.
“We enjoy a strong strategic partnership with Travelport and we are pleased to be able to take advantage of this innovative programme,” Dupont added.
“We are very pleased to welcome two leading hotel brands to our programme in Sofitel and Pullman. This is a win-win partnership that enables our hotel partners to expand their sales opportunities, whilst giving agents confidence that they have secured the lowest rate of the day,” said Travelport’s global head of hospitality suppliers, Keith Harrison.
