AccorHotels is pleased to offer a new group online booking tool, Leisure Online for partners in the tourism industry including travel agencies, tour operators, event organisers and professional meeting planners. This digital solution provides travel professionals with real time availability and best rates guaranteed for leisure group bookings of 15 to 60 people (from 8 to 30 rooms) at more than 750 hotels and resorts worldwide.
Leisure Online, which is user-friendly and designed like a booking engine for the general public, allows bookers to consult single, double and twin room availability in real time, receive automatic access to the best available rate (rates are dynamic net rates and inclusive of breakfast) with an option to instantly confirm.
Accessed via www.accorhotels.com/tourism, the Leisure Online booking tool also enables online users to pre-book directly in the hotel’s system, including additional services such as restaurant bookings and porterage at the click of a button.
AccorHotels Chief Operating Officer, Simon McGrath, points out that “The leisure group market is essential for AccorHotels in Australia. The number of room nights generated by leisure groups in 2015 increased by 12.2% and between 2014 and 2015 revenue generated by this market via our 33 international sales offices increased by 9.4%.”
To celebrate the launch of Leisure Online, AccorHotels Australia is offering travel professionals the chance to win an Apple Watch and other prizes including an accommodation package at Pullman Melbourne on the Park and high tea for two at Sofitel Sydney Wentworth.
