Today, Meliá Hotels International announced the launch of a new portal for travel agents, MELIÁ PRO. Featuring an easy to use booking engine, highly competitive rates and up to 16% commission on all bookings, MELIÁ PRO is an exclusive resource center specifically designed to increase business for the company’s travel partners. The portal will house a new loyalty platform, MELIÁ PRO Rewards, offering exclusive rates and benefits for agents at any of the company’s portfolio of over 350 hotels worldwide.
“Through the MELIÁ PRO portal, Meliá Hotels International further strengthens its commitment to the success of our travel partners,” said Juergen Stuetz, VP of Sales The Americas. “By working hand in hand with travel professionals, MHI has experienced exponential growth and the key to continuing this accomplishment is by innovating the way we connect with our partners.”
Simple, efficient and comprehensive, MELIÁ PRO provides agents with the company’s best available rates guaranteed. Registration is straightforward and must be completed by the agency manager at www.meliapro.com. In addition to the traditional commissionable retail rate option, a key benefit available within the portal is a net rate option enabling agents to collect gross payment from clients with a net remittance allowing agents to collect immediate commission.
Another key attribute of the travel agent portal is MELIÁ PRO Rewards, the new travel professional loyalty program which has replaced Más Amigos. All current Más Amigos member points will automatically transferred to the new program upon registration. Travel professionals can maximize points earned by booking through MELIÁ PRO. Members will benefit from exclusive rates at all properties for personal travel, including a 25% discount on any available rate.
Later this year, MELIÁ PRO will launch a development and e-learning tool featuring the latest information on all of the Meliá brands: Gran Meliá, Meliá Hotels & Resorts, Paradisus Resorts, ME by Meliá, Innside by Meliá, Tryp by Wyndham and Sol Hotels.
