Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) January 27, 2015
LeisureLink is pleased to announce its membership and support of The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA). LeisureLink has already seen great success in working with properties across the Caribbean islands, and is now partnering with CHTA to educate its members on how to maximize their exposure on online channels, improve the efficiency of their own booking channels and grow revenue through yield and revenue management. LeisureLink’s platform provides cost-effective and easy-to-use solutions that help property managers drive bookings from online distribution channels.
“Properties in the Caribbean need the broad exposure and distribution that the major OTA’s and travel sellers provide, but managing all of those channels can be prohibitively complex and expensive,” stated Jim Barsch, Chief Operating Officer of LeisureLink. “We help properties grow bookings through a diverse set of distribution channels without the added cost of managing them internally with additional staff. We are extremely excited about sharing our vision with The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association and its membership.”
LeisureLink looks forward to helping CHTA members gain control of their distribution challenges having already seen success with many Caribbean clients including the following:
Anthony Knowles, General Manager at Paradise Island Beach Club in the Bahamas has expressed his satisfaction with LeisureLink. “LeisureLink produces results! One account for all of the OTA's, gone are the days of double bookings - it has literally saved my business! I enjoyed a 186% increase in rental revenues! This is really incredible! I am reaching markets I only dreamed of contacting."
“There has been a tremendous benefit and pleasure working with LeisureLink. Just to know that there is a group that is looking out for you all around the world is very commendable. Like a big brother or sister, LeisureLink has been very efficient, reliable and extremely helpful to the Allamanda Beach Club Anguilla,” stated Ernie Hodge-Carty, Reservations Manager.
Salt Lake City-based LeisureLink offers vacation property suppliers the opportunity to distribute their inventory to top online travel agencies like Expedia, Booking.com, VacationRoost, and Orbitz; all major global distribution system players; and the top travel tour operators.
