Barceló Hotels & Resorts is offering travel affiliates an opportunity to earn significant commissions by selling a host of discount rate programs at many of their hotels and resorts through the remainder of this year.  Whether your customers are looking to vacation in Mexico, the Caribbean, Spain or the Balearic Islands, Barceló Hotels has a product and program to match both their interests and pocketbooks.

Take Mexico, for example. Given the softness in the overall Mexican tourism market, all six of Barceló’s premium all-inclusive resorts are available at 25% off regular room rates.  If, on the other hand, enjoying the high-life in Barcelona, lazing about the sandy beaches of the Costa de Sol or mixing with the jet-set in Majorca is your customer’s ‘sweet spot’, then Barceló can match these experiences with terrific discounts at a property-by-property level.  Playing a sea-side 27-hole golf course in Turkey, marveling at the Pyramids in Egypt, or visiting ancient ruins in Greece is more ‘up their alley’…then Barceló has those experiences covered as well.

Most of the promotional rates we’ve seen apply at a number of Barceló’s 4 and 5 star beach properties situated at these and other classic destinations, with rates starting as low as $150 per night.  Travel affiliates (and travelers) can check-out these and other special deals at Barceló Hotels & Resorts’ promotions site.

Established in Palma de Majorca, Spain more than 75 years ago, today Barceló Group is a vertically integrated travel company.  Included among its worldwide holdings are a hotel division that operate more than 185 hotels (mostly 4-5 star properties) in 16 countries, and a travel division with 505 travel agencies in 23 countries.  Although still a family-owned and operated company, Barceló Hotels & Resorts is ranked as the 24th largest hospitality company in the world.   In addition to its eponymous hotel brand, their hotel portfolio includes Crestline Hotels & Resorts, the Group’s American hotel management company. Crestline operates over 70 hotels in 14 U.S states and the District of Columbia, ranging from luxury urban landmarks to cozy boutique retreats.

Barceló Hotels & Resorts is a big proponent of travel affiliate marketing.  Paying 6% per sale (one of the higher commissions in the hotel industry), Barceló’s affiliate program offers a 30 day cookie duration, and 7- and 30-day EPCs of $460.40 and $279.77, respectively. Their base travel affiliate program is available through ShareASale, their preferred affiliate network in the U.S., or Paid On Results, their European affiliate network of choice.

TravelDividends believes that Barceló Hotels & Resorts could be an attractive addition to many travel affiliates’ hotel, resort or all-inclusive lodging portfolio.  If you haven’t yet assessed the attractiveness of their program, perhaps now is the right time.  If you have prior experience with Barceló Hotels & Resorts, please let us know what you think…we’re very interested in hearing your opinions and views.  Thanks!
