For more than 20 years, Bedsonline has supported travel advisors with domestic and international hotel booking, transfers, tours and activities through its partnership with AAA (American Automobile Association) and CAA (Canadian Automobile Association) and now, that’s set to continue for another three years thanks to a new preferential deal.
“We have been working closely with AAA & CAA for years and our bond is stronger than ever,” said Tommy Ryder, Regional Manager Sales in Americas at Hotelbeds, the parent company of Bedsonline. He continued: “Maintaining this kind of relationship for more than two decades is rare, but we are honoured that AAA & CAA continues to count on our partnership and to build on our excellent relationship.“
Thanks to this latest agreement, Bedsonline will now have an even closer relationship with AAA and CAA meaning it will continue to deliver a range of marketing and promotional activities and compensation programmes to all 115 CAA branches in Canada and 920 AAA branches in the United States, which represent more than 3,000 travel advisors.
These programmes offer clients enhanced AAA service and travel rewards plus other benefits to all the members. In addition, the programmes offer a very personal level of travel experience to leisure and luxury travel advisors.
Paula Twidale, Senior Vice President of Travel at AAA said: “We are pleased with our long standing relationship with Bedsonline, since they offer an array of products, enabling our AAA agents to provide diverse, quality travel experiences globally for our members.”
