Classic Collection has launched its one brand, one platform business model, with discounts of up to £75 off early bookings.

Classic Collection Director B2B Si Morris-Green said: “From today we’re giving agents the chance to book with a 100% trade-focussed operator.  Our brand new booking platform has gone live featuring more than 5,000 hotels across 78 destinations in the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe, North Africa, The Emirates, the Indian Ocean and Thailand.”

The launch follows face-to-face events with more than 150 trade partners in Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Belfast, with plans for further events later in the year in Southampton and Bristol.  More than 300 agents also joined a recent webinar preview of the new-look Classic Collection.

Si added: “We’ve been busy meeting our agent partners throughout the UK to share details of how the new world of Classic Collection will look. Agents have reacted well to the fact that we now have more single centre product than ever before on sale 24/7 via an easy-to-use and speedy trade-only portal. 

“Capitalising on the growth in short-haul airline capacity for 2024 our new platform offers a wide choice of airlines from more than 20 UK airports and a selection of resort transfer and luggage options. Commission can be adjusted by the agent during the booking process to help close a booking.

“Our new portal is also the gateway to our tailor-made by Classic Collection sub-site with details of twin-centre, boutique cruise, rail and premium luxury holidays, which can be booked over the phone with our travel experts. We’ve streamlined this area of our product offering to concentrate more on those areas in which we have always excelled.”

Launch discounts of £50 and £75 off summer 24 and summer 25 bookings respectively are on offer until the end of June, with no minimum spend requirement. During June all bookings will be entered into a daily draw for a £50 Classic Collection Black Card reward.

Si added: “I’d like to thank our agent partners for their patience and understanding as we’ve embarked on this exciting new chapter in our company history. Thanks are also owed to the entire team at Classic Collection who have worked tirelessly to deliver our one brand and one platform ahead of schedule.

“More than ever before Classic Collection will support agents to grow their business by acquiring new customers and retaining existing ones.”
