Travel Partners World offers more than 250,000 hotel proposals throughout the world, bookable and confirmable directly online. The lodging database is managed by global distributors (Wholesaler) and by local receptive experts (DMC). The global distributors are dedicated to the online market; they are directly interfaced with our system and they guarantee competitive rates together with ample real time availability. The local receptive operators are destination professionals, to whom it is advisable to turn to, especially for specific requests or particularly demanding clients when it comes to assistance or quality of service. The philosophy of Travel Partners World is that no preselection is applied to proposals from different Providers enabled for sales: the same hotel, therefore, can be shown, in order of price and availability, as many times as there are Providers that propose it, each with its own conditions (price, availability, cancellation fees, assistance, etc.). The affiliated member has complete freedom of choice between the different alternatives, that would otherwise be excluded from a preselection based only on rates.
Doing a “tours” search, it's easy to appreciate the true strength of Travel Partners World! There are in fact more than 1000 tour proposals for sale at the present time, often confirmable directly online. Among these, there are numerous itineraries on a private basis and guaranteed departures to various worldwide destinations. The possibility of easily creating and quoting private and group itineraries online increases profitability and often also reduces booking management time. Tour services are proposed and managed directly by our selected Incoming operators that load their own product into our database and that often, until the arrival of Travel Partners World, didn't distribute their services online. The expertise and professionalism of our Incoming Partners are a guarantee of quality for working serenely and offering a high level of services even to the most demanding client.
Through the Activities and Excursions search engine, one can book many ancillary services, offered either from global Providers or from our Incoming Partners, to enrich and customize your clients' vacations. The offer of services, available for the major tourist destinations worldwide, includes city cards, tickets for theaters, museums, amusement parks and attractions, hop-on-hop-off itineraries, restaurants, guided excursions, group and private guide service and much, much more! Some Providers offer advantageous combo packages, such as the highly appreciated Hot Spot, reservable in many cities of the USA, that include in/out transfers, on a private or group basis, and City Tours with an Italian guide, at very cheap rates!
The product database available online is obviously constantly growing. For all custom service required or services not available online it is possible to send a request, directly through TPW website, that is quickly processed by Travel Partners World and the Providers involved.
The mix among wholesale operators, that guarantees competitive prices with ample availability in real time, and receptive operators, that are real destination experts, allows for the easy-to-manage sale of FIT services directly online, but doesn't exclude the easy management of requests and any ad hoc quotations. The Providers enabled to sell through the platform can help you manage any type of request, from individual to group incentives. Most of the Providers that you find on the search engines, in fact, also offer services for groups and have a department dedicated to managing the MICE division.
In order to always offer better services whoever sells FIT services in Travel Partners World has to collaborate directly online, while in order to better manage the MICE requests and groups we work with specialized Partners, even if they don't sell online. This allows us to always offer more bookable, or at least quotable, online services, for more and more worldwide destinations.
The Internet, the low cost companies and the socio-cultural changes of the most recent decades have profoundly changed the tourist industry, making available to the end client information and tools for creating their own trip by themselves, at rates often cheaper than those offered by the traditional market. These dynamics have more than doubled world travelers from 1995 to today, creating new opportunities for all the industry operators that knew how or will know how to evolve, repositioning themselves in the new market. TPW is the right Partner for taking up this challenge! In fact, we strongly believe in the importance of quality distribution by the agencies and in the specialization of abilities as a single and precious tool, available to Tour Operators. For this reason Travel Partners World makes available to industry operators an online booking platform – business, leisure and MICE – dedicated exclusively to the B2B market, with net prices and without any fee for opening a file, which combines in a single product offer traditional travel services and web rates.
Growing from the point of view of operativity, connectivity and distribution, in order to overcome the crisis of traditional commercial channels, is what Travel Partners World offers to Providers that work and propose services in the TPW database. Collaboration with wholesale Providers that distribute travel services on a global level to many destinations and that produce the majority of hotel proposals for sale on TPW sites, allows our Affiliated Buyers to manage all the requests that need accomodation and ancillary services, from the Budget client to the VIP client. The distinguishing element of Travel Partners World's tourist offer, compared to other portals of online booking, is instead, the sale of travel services of our Incoming Partners.

The incoming Partners' services allow tour operating at any level, because they are in a position to satisfy any particular request, being profound experts of the destinations and the realities in which they operate.

TOURIST SERVICES: it's possible to request activation of one's direct xml codes for all Partners of the platform that permit it. This allows the Affiliates to directly sell Provider products, without a middleman, and to have only one integrated search engine on one's website, where one can see the number of products increase over time, without needing to search various systems!
The greatest profuse effort of Travel Partners World is the research of the best compromise possible between professional competence safeguards and product distribution. The use of TPW technology by our Partners permits the management of a distribution structure that is no longer pyramidal. It follows today's market guidelines, in which all the players can grow, thanks to the web and inter-connectivity that this requires, in proportion to the resources they decide to invest. To facilitate and render the technological tool more productive, all the Affiliates that manage their online sales with Travel Partners World can access, starting December 2013, the TPW Marketplace. Here all the Affiliates that have underwritten a Tour Operator Affiliation, in order to load and sell their tourist services, can display their products. An example? An agency Partner in Edimburgh can decide to activate on their website departure sales for Christmas markets in Europe proposed by a Tour Operator in London.
Buying and selling in a single system is possible only with Travel Partners World!
