Our partnership with HICKORY began almost 20 years ago! Having launched their hotel program worldwide throughout our global ATG network, we have utilized HICKORY’s many services over the years. Their negotiation of discounted rates, block space, and relationships with hotel partners has allowed us to provide valuable savings to our clients and gain access to enhanced commissions. With HICKORY’s advanced hotel reporting technology and automated commission recovery, ATG is able to identify areas of improvement in hotel booking leakage and rate utilization.
We have also utilized their air commission program which gives us access to commissions for international reservations.
Our agents have enjoyed numerous international and domestic FAM trip opportunities, allowing them to experience HICKORY preferred vendors. In addition, the preferred vendor webinars allow our agents to educate themselves about the air, car, and hotel vendors available, enabling our agents to be able to sell them to our clients. HICKORY also provides prizes to our agents for participating, which is always a big hit!
We value our partnership with Hickory Global Partners and highly recommend them for any of your needs!
Wyndham Jade has been a member with HICKORY for 10 years and our partnership has continued to grow in that time. The hotel program which is one of the best out there in the travel industry, has not only provided excellent discounted rates and amenities for our Corporate Customers but has also given us leverage when we are submitting RFP's for potential new Corporate Customers. This allows us to show savings and value for our customers.
HICKORY has a wide variety of product offerings and continues to enhance their products and services based on feedback and needs from their member group.
We are not a large enough TMC to have international air agreements and HICKORY y has a wide variety of key airline partner agreements that allow us to take advantage of very lucrative point of sale upfront commissions.
HICKORY provides on-going weekly educational webinars for their TMC partners on hotel groups and other product offerings. The partner manager we have been assigned is terrific to work with and provides us with quarterly reviews on our results.
I would highly recommend Hickory Global Partners to anyone who might be looking for a partner consortium to enhance their travel program.
Our partnership with Hickory Global Partners has provided us with a number travel technology offers that on our own would have taken us months to do the research to determine their viability for our clients. We are a relatively new HICKORY partner but we are already working with our clients in introducing some of these products to our mutual benefit.
The HICKORY hotel program will provide us with another important income stream that would simply not have been available to us without our partnership with HGP.
HICKORY does an excellent job in keeping our agents and agency management educated and up to date on new products and services available with the vendor partners of HICKORY.
Hickory Global Partners partner support is outstanding; very prompt is responding to questions and extremely proactive in making sure we are utilizing every aspect of the HICKORY partnership.
We have the comfort in knowing that the HICKORY management team is continually looking for products and services that not only positively impacts our bottom line but provides important value added offerings to our client base.
