The hotel you want may be sold out — for everyone except you.
As an American Express Travel Representative, a certain number of hotel rooms are reserved for us, even in sold-out situations. As an American Express Travel Representative, we are frequently able to secure rooms for business clients in a hotel which is showing sold out, often at a daily rate that is $50 to $70 less than the corporate rate appearing in reservation system.
As an American Express Travel Representative, we have access to pre-negotiated international business discounts on major airlines. Contracts with these airlines provide significant business discounts in multiple classes of service. Hess Travel’s veteran consultants know the ropes, including knowing the best sources of non-traditional supply for international business air fares. Consolidators often can provide very significant savings, but it is critical to know who reliable and trusted suppliers are. Our long-standing relationships provide these critical assurances.
