Our specialist hotel division operates a comprehensive booking service for all domestic and international hotel reservations and guarantees the lowest rate available at the time of making a corporate travel booking.
With a database of over 250,000 hotels (both chains and independent properties) around the world, Applehouse Travel makes booking a hotel room easy. Our consultants who manage business travel programmes have instant access to our hotel database, enabling them to find an appropriately located hotel at the best rate possible to suit every budget.
Similar to our Air Fare Unit, our Hotel Rate Unit uses the Southall Travel Group's buying power to negotiate the lowest rates possible. In addition, staff in our Hotel Rate Unit regularly monitor hotel occupancy levels to obtain even lower rates. Our database is regularly updated with seasonal offers and other promotional rates.
In addition, for clients who use specific business travel hotels or hotel chains on a regular basis, Applehouse can build tailored corporate rate hotel programmes, and in many cases negotiate best rate guarantees. This applies both domestically and abroad.
Booking a hotel room was straightforward at one time. However, with room rates now fluctuating in response to supply and demand and seasonal variations in occupancy, it is becoming increasingly important for companies to have an expert working on their behalf that can be relied upon to secure the best rates possible.
The key factors that give Applehouse an advantage over its competitors are:
By obtaining highly competitive rates on accommodation worldwide with instant confirmations, we keep our clients’ business travel expenses to a minimum.
Our hotel reservation systems compare a minimum of five separate wholesale channels, in addition to our own contracts, giving us access to the best rates possible.
Our hotel comparison site combines inventory from multiple sources, including our own. As a result, we are able to access the last available rooms when cities become heavily booked due to special events, exhibitions or trade fares.
85% of our hotels offer all room types available at the property - such as executive rooms and suites, not just the basic lead-in price for run-of-house rooms.
In most countries, we can source accommodation located throughout the country, not just in capital cities. For example in France, our inventory includes properties in over 50 cities, not only in Paris.
In most cases, we can arrange pre-paid accommodation, providing travellers with vouchers corresponding to the value of the reservation.
