ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tourico Holidays, the world's fastest growing wholesale travel provider, today announced that it has added 5,000 “Book by the Door” vacation home properties in all the top U.S. ski markets. Tourico becomes the only travel wholesaler to offer ski-centric vacation homes with instant bookings and the ability to bundle the product with car rentals, lift tickets, ski rental equipment, flights and more.
Tourico introduced its “Book by the Door” technology in April 2014, giving travel agents on-location views of the exact vacation home they will be booking. Using the technology, travel suppliers can access high-resolution imagery of individually photographed vacation home properties, a detailed list of features and the specific address of the vacation home where they will be staying.
“Travel suppliers can now sell anything from a 6-bedroom villa in Tahoe to a studio apartment right at the base of Breckenridge – with the confidence that their customers are getting exactly what they want,” said Steve Caron, Vice President of Vacation Rentals for Tourico Holidays. “With real-time, live bookings, clients can also bundle homes with wholesale priced flights, car rentals or even ski equipment and lift tickets. Travel agents are ultimately able to access a vacation home inventory that no other wholesaler in the world can offer - and they can increase their bottom line by creating a dynamic itinerary for their customer.”
Travel suppliers can find Tourico vacation homes in all the major ski locations, including Breckenridge, Aspen, Vail, Lake Tahoe, Mammoth, and Park City. An additional thousand ski-based homes will continue to be rolled out by Tourico throughout 2015 – including in Montana, Utah, Wisconsin, Colorado, California, Wyoming, British Columbia, Vermont, and Oregon.
Tourico Holidays offers the complete ski and snowboard travel package. The company has partnered with ski resorts throughout the United States to sell lift tickets, rental equipment, ski and snowboarding lessons, and other winter-related products - at up to 40 percent off of retail. Travel agents can even have ski and snowboard equipment delivered to customers through the award-winning delivery service, Ski Butlers.
“Travelers no longer have to turn to peer-to-peer sources like Airbnb to find one-of-a-kind homes to stay at – and they don’t have to go to ten different sources to piece together their trip,” said Caron. “Instead, people can turn to professional travel agents, who can provide both unique vacation properties and all the other components to a ski trip – at rock bottom prices.”
