Provide client-specific negotiated rates

to boost bookings

Drive brand awareness, reach untapped markets and generate volume reservations by participating in corporate, TMC (travel management companies) and consortia hotel programmes and providing client-specific negotiated rates.

Leverage the potential of RFP’s to drive new business to your hotel. Travel managers use Request for Proposals (RFP’s) to identify the hotels they want to work with, decide if the hotels meet the criteria and negotiate rates. The Elegant Hotel Collection identifies relevant opportunities for your hotel and works with travel managers to ensure your property is included in RFP invitations.

Flexible payment options

Programme Fees or

Pay on Performance

Some RFPs require fees for participation, and whilst the cost of participation in hotel programmes generally works out to be a very small % of the revenue generated, we know some hotels find it hard to get budget approval for fees that have to be paid in advance.

The Elegant Hotel Collection has established alliances with nearly all global consortia to remove the annual fee for participation for those hotels keen to eliminate risk. Hotels can instead participate in consortia programmes on a “Pay On Performance” basis. Simply pay an enhanced commission when consortia reservations are generated.

What You Should Know About the RFP Process

Consortia and Travel Management Companies (TMCs) manage a significant percentage of room nights for the hotel industry and are a source of many RFPs;
The peak RFP season is from July to September for the following year’s participation. If you miss any deadlines, many programmes offer late participation options;
Group travel RFPs are generally sent throughout the year as, and when, there is demand;
Some require fees for participation, but the cost of participation in hotel programmes generally works out to be a very small % of the revenue generated;
Most RFPs are sent by e-mail or posted on RFP specific tools, like the Elegant Content Tool. Full training and support are provided;
Once an RFP is received, your hotel needs to submit the information requested, in the format that is required and within the deadlines that are set;
The client then reviews the information you submit to assess if you meet the programme’s criteria and decide if your application will be accepted or rejected;
If your application is approved, we will help you to load the agreed client-specific negotiated rates on the appropriate channels for distribution.
