ABA Partners With Hotelplanner.com

Posted on December 11, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A new alliance between the American Bus Association and HotelPlanner.com, a provider of online services to the global group sales market, will make HotelPlanner’s guaranteed lowest rates available to all ABA operators, customers and affiliates through a customized platform, aba.hotelplanner.com.

ABA’s member hotels enjoy benefits such as ABA Marketplace and exclusive access to the largest motorcoach and tour operator companies in North America. These benefits will extend further through HotelPlanner and ABA’s shared platform. Member hotels will be recognized with an “ABA Preferred” logo on their hotel offers through this group hotel booking page available on buses.org.

“Partnering with HotelPlanner.com positions our member hotels with increased exposure and additional services they can [use] to book more business,” said ABA president and CEO Peter Pantuso in a statement. “With premier programs such as ABA Marketplace, GroupConnect.com, the OMCA/ABA Tour Operator Summit, Destination Magazine’s Lodging Guide and now HotelPlanner.com, our members will benefit tremendously from having multiple platforms to maximize their hotel bookings.”
