Luminous Hotel Program

You are aware already that I am a member of the Virtuoso luxury consortium worldwide, which allows me to book hotels (and cruises, and tours, and customized holidays, etc) for clients worldwide and work with feet-on-the-ground experts. But, I am also a member of a couple of dozen preferred hotel programs. And, that means when I’m booking a holiday for you, and customizing a trip that includes a hotel stay, I can slice and dice the benefits, ensuring I book the hotel for you that maximizes the perks.
Most times, that means that I book a hotel for you through the hotel proprietary program – for example, Four Seasons I book through the exclusive Four Seasons Preferred Partner Program.

Today, I’ll share a little about the Luminous Program.

Based on the volume of sales I have in partnership with Vision and Direct Travel, my host agency and I have access to specific perks at premium and luxury hotels that are part of the luminous program.

As a member of the Marriott International Luminous Program our advisors have access to special benefits and amenities at over 275 hotels worldwide. This is a highly select group of independent travel companies that are invited to take part in the preferred agency program which includes the W Hotels, JW Marriott and The Autograph Collection properties. Plus participating hotels such as Westin, Le Méridien, Renaissance and Tribute Portfolio. This means your reservations at any Luminous hotel around the globe will receive VIP treatment.
