Travel agents and travel advisors are highly valued partners of ours. We welcome cooperation with travel agents and we provide commissions on accommodations.
Our company is the luxury villa company featuring thousands of luxury villas and curated experiences around the world. We offer unique advantages that other companies simply do not. We cultivate destination expertise. We believe in being an expert with intimate knowledge of a destination and the properties that it offers. We have dedicated specialists focused on a specific destination so they can provide the insight to ensure the perfect villa is selected.
We feature the most advanced technology and search platform with live calendars.
Lastly, your clients benefit from our renowned concierge and experiences team so they can plan the ultimate vacation experience.
We will be delighted to reserve a vacation rental for your client. Our villa specialists are available to provide unbiased advice and expertise to find the perfect vacation home for your client.
Reservations can be handled via two booking pathways.
The travel agency provides the email address of the guest. The guest is sent the contract and invoice with the agency on copy. Guest has the option to directly coordinate arrival logistics and vacation planning via our concierge team and online Experiences platform. A commission check is issued at the end of your stay. The benefits of this pathway are multifold: limited financial liability, ease of communication and planning as well as the availability of all our planning tools.
If the agency wishes to contract, bill and handle payment of the reservation directly with the client, the email confirmation and booking documents will be sent directly to the agency for further handling. We remain as an intermediary and support team for your client as needed. The travel agency is responsible for coordinating logistics and vacation planning with the guest and to convey necessary information to our concierge team. With the final payment for the villa, we ask that you retain your commission. While we will provide all the assistance you need, the agency or agent assumes all financial and planning liabilities.
The typical commission is 10% of the rental rate (prior to taxes, fees and/or service charge). The 10% commission applies to the majority of our properties. Select properties may offer less commission ranging from 5 to 7.5%.
Note: In order to be eligible for a commission, the agent must originate the reservation request. Agents are not eligible for a commission if the guest has already initiated the reservation process unless there has been a pre-registration of the guest by the agency or if the guests requests the involvement of the agency at time of booking. No consideration for commission will be considered if the reservation has been initiated.
Welcome aboard and we look forward to assist you and your client on the vacation experience they deserve.
