Our commitment to guaranteeing weekly commission payments is another way that we continue to show our ongoing support of the travel agent community. We constantly strive to make our agents more profitable while still delivering the best negotiated rates from our hotel inventory suppliers.”

Thanks for making things easier and better for travel agents.”
