TORONTO — Members of FRHI Hotels & Resorts’ Famous Agents program already enjoy a comprehensive education and rewards system, but now they’re set to experience an industry-leading range of new redemption options, says the compny.
FRHI, the operator of Raffles Hotels & Resorts, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts, has launched a new online shopping mall, offering participating travel agents a choice of thousands of goods from top retailers across the globe. The enhanced reward offerings reflect a range and depth of redemption opportunities for agents that are unrivalled in the hospitality industry, says FRHI.
“Our travel agent partners worldwide are some of our strongest advocates, and now we’re pleased to recognize their support with an even greater range of reward options,” said Jeff Senior, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, FRHI. “The opportunity to shop thousands of high quality goods at our online mall offers agents a level of personalization in the redemption experience that is unmatched in our industry right now.”
Every time Famous Agents send their clients to an FRHI property or resort, they earn valuable points which can be redeemed for complimentary room nights at all Raffles, Fairmont and Swissôtel properties globally. As well, agents can take advantage of other rewards, which now include an expanded range of retail gift cards and merchandise.
Famous Agents worldwide can browse items from luxury handbags and jewelry, to high-end electronics and house wares from top brands like Coach, Tiffany & Co. and Bose. The participating retailers and range of available products vary by region, with over 50 different country catalogues available. As extra motivation, members can create ‘wish lists’ and monitor their current points balance, to determine how close they are to redeeming their desired items.
