Shane Cullen spoke with Joanne Peters (Senior Business Development Manager UK & Ireland – Palladium Hotel Group) who shared details on Palladium Pro – a way for agents to book any of their extensive hotels directly with the hotel group. Agents can sign up to get access to all of the Palladium Hotel Group room categories. Agents are able to receive net rates as well as access to room types that may not be available via tour operators.

Joanne shared Palladium Connect is a loyalty programme lined with Palladium Pro. An agent can log any bookings made & get credit for that booking. Agents can earn more credit by completing learning courses. All of these activities accumulate to a total which can be used against agent rates within the hotel group. In other words, train up on the product and earn discounts on your holiday.
