Commitment to the Travel Agency Community
Since the founding of International Lodging Corporation in 1983, we have always maintained our commitment to the travel agency community. Long before the internet, when overseas communication was conducted by telex, we sought to provide an easy method of reserving quality hotels in Spain and Portugal, while ensuring that your hard-earned commission would be paid promptly, and in US Dollars.
Our staff is well trained and knowledgeable about Spain and Portugal, and can assist you in putting together a customized trip that meets your client’s needs. From designing the right itinerary, to selecting the right hotel, to adding the perfect private tour, we are here to help make your job easier.
The lessons learned from our more than three decades of experience have gone into building a website, blog, and e-Newsletters so that they can become a valuable tool for you. We have put a variety of information about Spain, Portugal and our hotels at your fingertips, including Travel Tips, City Information, Sites to See, Suggested Itineraries, and Private Tours. These tools are provided to help you build the perfect trip for your client.
We carefully select the hotels we represent to ensure that they offer you and your clients a range of values, without compromising on quality. Our long-standing relationships with hotels ensure that your clients will receive the proper care during their stay. We also make sure that the hotels are “travel agent friendly” and honor their commitment to the processing and paying of commissions promptly, so that we can pay your commissions promptly. If you book a hotel reservation through us and your client stays at the hotel, we can assure you that you will receive your commission.
ILC pays commissions to travel agents on all hotel reservations, property rentals, private tours, and transportation services. Commission is issued by us and paid in US Dollars by check, after the client’s departure. You never have to make an international call or speak a foreign language, since any question regarding a pending commission is directed to us and not the hotel. If you book reservations at more than one hotel you will receive one consolidated check for the entire booking.
Remember, making a reservation through us is easy. Hotels simply require a credit card for guarantee and the client pays the hotel when they check out. It’s that simple.
Travel Agent ID
A valid IATA, TIDS, TSI, or CLIA number is required in order to receive a commission. An in-house IATA can be requested if you do not have an IATA, TIDS, TSI, or CLIA number, and is subject to our approval process. In-house IATAs will only be granted to travel agents located in the United States or Canada. Commission checks are always made payable to the travel agency, and never to an individual.
