Great Hotels of the World removes all booking and credit card fees
Friday 22, July 2011
Great Hotels of the World, the London-based hotel sales and marketing alliance, is delighted to announce that it has removed all booking and credit card fees from its website.
Customers are now able to book online without facing any additional charges associated with their reservation, an offer or limited time sale.
Unlike many other companies who do charge these fees, Great Hotels of the World is confident that this will help to increase the number of reservations made on its site, allowing it to stand apart from its competitors.
Great Hotels of the World also has many new offers available on its website, which can be found at http://www.ghotw.com/offers.aspx, all with the removed booking and handling fees. The hotel sales and marketing alliance also frequently runs 72 hour limited time sales with its member properties. Any reservation made during these special sales will also have the fees removed.
Sonia Giaimo, Leisure Sales Manager for Great Hotels of the World says:
“In the light of market changes, we have decided to remove all booking and credit card fees which we believe will enable us to stand head and shoulders apart from our competitors. In light of the recent criticism surrounding companies who utilise large credit card and booking fees, we have decided to take action and allow customers to feel at greater ease when making a reservation through us.”
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
