Northstar Travel Media Teams with Travelscream for New Travel Agent Deals Distribution Platform
In a groundbreaking content redistribution model, hotels deliver “Travel Deals” to agents via Northstar’s websites
Secaucus, NJ and Vail, Colo. (July 8, 2009) -- Northstar Travel Media (www.northstartravelmedia.com) has entered into a partnership with Travelscream (www.travelscream.com), to host, brand and market Travelscream's travel professional deals distribution platform to audiences of Travel Weekly, Travel Age West, Hotel and Travel Index, STAR Service Online and Weissmann Reports. Northstar will be the exclusive travel trade publisher within Travelscream's Travel Deals Network.
Through the Travel Weekly Travel Deals program, travel professionals can find deals from leading global travel service providers, share them with clients, book them and earn revenue. Agents will be able to sort search results based on various preferences, including commission levels.
The pioneering technology that enables these bookings utilizes the latest Internet content sharing technologies.
Agents earn standard commissions on bookings and then have the ability to post the deals through their own online channels (on websites and in emails) in a unique revenue-sharing arrangement. All services to agents are provided free-of-charge.
"We know how difficult and time consuming it is for agents to find, book and share timely, authentic travel deals with their clients," said Bob Sullivan, Executive Vice President/Publisher. "With this turnkey solution, Travelscream has made it easy for us to offer a comprehensive travel deals aggregation, distribution and revenue-generating tool to our readers."
To display their travel deals within Travel Weekly's Travel Deals platform, travel service providers first join Travelscream's Travel Deals Network (TDN), a fast, easy and cost-effective way to reach qualified buyers who are researching and booking travel online.
Travelscream's Travel Deals Network is a risk-free Cost Per Click advertising channel designed to stimulate demand, drive direct bookings to the provider's website, and give travel companies an alternative to third-party transaction fees. To promote the Travel Weekly Travel Deals program, Travel Weekly will leverage its relationship with agent audiences in their print, web and email marketing campaigns.
"We are very pleased to partner with Travel Weekly in introducing an industry-leading deals distribution platform that offers immediate revenue benefits to both travel suppliers and agents concurrently," said Travelscream CEO Tom Griffin.
Travel suppliers are encouraged to enter travel offers that contain agent incentives into the Travel Deals Network immediately. For more information, suppliers may contact their Travelscream sales representative or call (970) 476-0440.
