Through our consortium partnerships, Short's current edition of our Preferred Hotel Rate Program provides comprehensive listings for over 14,000 properties located in 137 participating countries. This program offers the best room rates available on the commercial market, in addition to numerous amenities and services.
Short's also offers an additional 'Luxury Property' discount program with 530 hotels selected to participate based on location, style, and 3-5 star rating. The negotiated rates save clients an average 18% and include discounts up to 47%. The hotels offer a variety of value-added amenities including complimentary breakfast, guaranteed early check-in, and complimentary internet access.
FindIt®, an open search solution that allows travelers to search where they want and still book with their TMC, now includes hotels. When the business traveler finds a hotel at their favorite website, the FindIt® window will pop up. The traveler then enters their email address listed in their TMC profile, and FindIt® will search for that hotel and nearby alternate hotels, applying corporate discounts and travel policy. The traveler receives an email back with bookable rates and clicks to purchase online with their TMC. This one-page check-out applies the corporate travel profile to the reservation including all loyalty numbers, personal credit cards or company ghost cards, when configured.
