Small Luxury Hotels of the World has added a section
to its website dedicated to travel agents. To promote the
new section, SLH has rolled out a global competition that will provide
travel agents with an opportunity to win up to 50 room nights at any one
of the brand’s worldwide properties.
“We recognise that travel agents are critical to
the success of the brand and so it’s really important that we
continue to identify and implement new initiatives, like a
dedicated website, that provide agents with the tools to sell the
SLH brand as effectively and seamlessly as possible,” said Paul
Kerr, Chief Executive Officer of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
The importance of travel agents to the SLH brand
is demonstrated by the fact that over 70% of reservations made
through Small Luxury Hotels of the World’s booking channels are
made by agents using the dedicated GDS code ‘LX’ for LuXury.
Each week until mid-April, Small Luxury Hotels
of the World is offering travel agents the opportunity to win one
of 10 five-night stays at any one of its worldwide properties.
With over 480 of the world’s finest small
independent hotels, spanning more than 70 countries, this presents
travel agents with quite a spectacular choice. Whether it is
trekking through the rainforests of Costa Rica, experiencing an
atmospheric jungle lodge on the edge of India’s oldest national
park or discovering the delights of a city sanctuary, the options
All that travel agents are required to do in order to
be in with a chance of winning one of the five- right stays is log

chances of winning. One lucky winner will be selected each week.
