Accorhotels names JacTravel Incoming Group Wholesaler of the Year

8 Feb 2016

At Accorhotels' UK’s recent Annual Leisure Awards Evening, JacTravel was named “Incoming Group Wholesaler of the Year”, beating eight other short-listed wholesalers to the top accolade. The award recognises the excellent relationship Accorhotels enjoys with the JacTravel group contracting team, which has resulted in a significant increase in group business with Accorhotels in 2015.

Andrew Guthrie, Director of Customer Delivery and Contracting, JacTravel Groups Division, said: “Our contracting team is delighted to have been recognised in this way by Accorhotels.  It reflects a strong relationship between the central sales team at Accorhotels, JacTravel’s group buying team and certain hotel partners.  These relationships have been built up over the years and they add value for both parties.  At times when hotels are relatively empty and really need business, JacTravel delivers substantial numbers of paying customers - and at times when Accorhotels is busy and JacTravel needs rooms, certain properties keep a guaranteed allocation open for JacTravel’s clients.  I look forward to further strengthening our relationship with Accor so that we can win similar accolades from the company as we build our product portfolio beyond the UK into Europe.   

In 2015, JacTravel placed business worth nearly £2m in approximately 40 Accor UK properties.
