“We are excited to add our 22 Road Lodge properties to GDS, making life easier and more streamlined for travel agents. We look forward to a boost in bookings as we optimise these GDS channels with our travel trade partners in mind,” says Lindiwe Sangweni-Siddo, chief operating officer at CLHG.
In addition, the group reminds IATA-registered travel agents and travel management companies that it continues to pay 10% commission on bookings for all CLHG brands – Fairview Hotel, Courtyard Hotel, City Lodge Hotel, Town Lodge and Road Lodge.
Zuki Jantjies, divisional director of sales and marketing at CLHG, adds, “We have always had a strong relationship with the travel management industry and paying commissions, a practice that has long been part of CLHG business culture, is an important part of that.
