Connecting ABC’s travel agency partners with HVN’s collection of over 200,000 professional managed residences
BOCA RATON, Fla. (March 10, 2021)- ABC Global Services is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with HVN, a leading B2B booking platform, connecting ABC and CCRA’s travel agency partners worldwide to HVN’s collection of professionally managed private residences, villas, homes, and other one-of-a-kind accommodations.
The new relationship will enable ABC and CCRA agencies to access a marketplace of more than 200,000 properties and accommodations in addition to the 50,000+ hotels available through the ABC/CCRA Premier Global Hotel Program bookable in the GDS and online booking tools. HVN’s expertly curated collection of properties features unique rental accommodations suitable for both business and leisure travel, including vacation rentals, serviced apartments, private homes, villas, condo residences, cabins, private ranches, ski chalets and overwater bungalows. Unlike other accommodation rental platforms, 100 percent of HVN’s properties are professionally managed, not only ensuring consistent, high-quality stays but also compliance to strict, cleanliness requirements, an essential feature in the time of COVID-19.
ABC’s agency partners can access this content through a dedicated website, where they can sign up, easily search, and book inventory, and earn flexible commissions on each transaction. Agencies also have access to a sophisticated reporting portal where they can track all their agent and traveler activity, commission payments and more.
“I am thrilled that ABC will be able to provide our agency partners access to a unique portfolio of high-demand, high-quality accommodations through this new partnership with HVN,” said Eric Altschul, CEO of ABC Global Services. “These accommodations will help them meet their clients’ needs in the coming critical months as demand recovers as well as provide them with a welcome additional revenue stream.”
“We are excited to grow in partnership with ABC, a well-established and respected company that shares our commitment to innovating in service of the travel professional community,” said Meg Partridge, Chief Product Officer of HVN. “We look forward to working alongside the ABC team to power a new category of havens combining the best of hospitality and home for agencies around the world.
