With SPL Villas, Advantage Holidays & Cruise has introduced new villa-inclusive packages

The internal tour operator of the Advantage Travel Partnership, Advantage Holidays & Cruise, has introduced a new line of “Villa Holiday” products for its members. Advantage members will now have access to 1,500 villa rentals in more than 100 locations throughout Europe and Florida thanks to a new partnership with SPL Villas. According to Advantage, this move reflects the continued demand for multigenerational family and group travel bookings.

With recent feedback indicating a growing need for additional access to villa and flight-inclusive holidays at a time when options for agents without their own ATOL licencing are still limited, members will benefit from being able to package villa rentals with flights and ancillary ground arrangements as part of a fully ATOL-protected package.

Customers will also have access to regional travel alternatives from 34 UK airports, customizable lengths starting at three nights or longer, and a flat-rate deposit of £250 per person with favourable balance payment terms of just 42 days before departure for European vacations.

Advantage Holidays & Cruise will offer a bonus incentive of £50 per booking on all new bookings up until August 31, 2023, to support the launch of this new concept. The knowledgeable Advantage Holidays & Cruise contact centre staff will also be available to members for assistance with new bookings, a process that can frequently be time-consuming on Villa Holidays due to the amount of guests that typically travel.

Members have unique access to the gratis Advantage package, which has competitive commission and the option to control margins on every booking. The new Villa Holiday packages are no exception and provide members with excellent earning potential.

In order to fulfil consumer demand and leverage all sales and earning potential, Lee Ainsworth, Head of Operations, continued, “Through Advantage Holidays & Cruise we continue to pivot and align ourselves with the requirements of our members, ensuring we supply the products they require. After the introduction of Fly-Stay & Cruise at The Advantage Cruise Conference in October 2022, the launch of Villa Holiday packages represents the beginning of our second phase of product development, with additional expansion plans being created in conjunction with our members.

“Our new partnership with Advantage Holidays & Cruise further demonstrates the value we place on trade distribution, something that has been part of our strategy since our launch,” stated Edward Frampton-Fell, Managing Director of SPL Villas. We are eager to deepen our ties with Advantage members and expand the range of fully inclusive vacation packages available to the public and the travel industry.

We’re thrilled to be offering this wonderful variety of villa rentals through our association with SPL Villas, said Mark Pullen, Trading & Operations Manager. Our call centre staff members have a combined total of over 140 years of expertise in the travel industry, and they are eager to assist our members in offering their clients these superbly priced Villa Holidays.

The largest association of independent travel agents in Britain, The Advantage Travel Partnership, has an internal tour operator brand called Advantage Holidays & Cruise.
