SAN JOSE, Calif. , April 3, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- In a time when travelers are craving seamless experiences and personalized journeys, Classic Vacations, the #1 rated global luxury travel company, is proud to unveil its latest innovation- an enhanced multi-destination booking platform that is custom-built to redefine how Travel Advisors design, plan, and book luxury vacations for their clients.

"After all these years, I couldn't be more excited to offer a digital solution designed for, and with, our Travel Advisors. With a new set of features, benefits, and access to our Preferred inventory for the first time, this new booking platform, and our overall digital transformation, is central to our focus on innovation, excellence and adding value to our ecosystem of Advisors, Hotels and Partners," said Melissa Krueger CEO of Classic Vacations.

"Classic is unique in the wholesale space by delivering on the trifecta - we sell beautiful luxury hotels, we provide impeccable white glove service, and we offer great technology." For over 45 years, by helping Advisors deliver outstanding experiences through highly personalized service, trusted partnerships, and curated products, we are proud to continue delivering more for our Advisors in a very meaningful way," said Krueger.

The new booking platform streamlines the booking process, offering convenience, efficiency, and unparalleled flexibility. The platform enables Advisors to search for, courtesy hold, and facilitate multi-city tours, island-hopping adventures, and cross-country expeditions.

Classic has added specialized packaging services for Advisors wishing to add components like air, rail, ground transportation, in destination tours, and more. The packaging service is high-touch and tailored to each Advisor's needs.

Select benefits of Classic's new online booking experience for Travel Advisors:

    --  Multi-Hotel, Multi-Room, Multi-Destination Bookings: All in one
        transaction.
    --  Global Inventory: Access to Classic Preferred and Affiliate hotels with
        real-time rates and inventory.

"Imagine the possibilities this opens for our Advisors.

This platform allows access to all our Preferred partner hotels and villas, plus all other global affiliate inventory together. We will personally help wrap these bookings with our curated packaging service for in-destination tours, activities and more. We know this is game changing, and we are so excited to bring this to our Advisor community," said Amy Logan, Vice President, Solutions, at Classic Vacations.
