US / UK: Vacation rental and home care company, InvitedHome, has partnered with trade-only villa specialist ONEE Luxury Travel to provide travel agents with direct access to rent out around 50 properties, predominantly in Colorado and Utah.
News of the partnership arrived just a day after it was announced that the United States is planning to lift restrictions on fully-vaccinated international travellers from the UK and European Union.
ONEE Luxury Travel product and partnership director Iain Raeper told Travel Gossip: “In these challenging times, access to luxurious properties, which offer the privacy and away-from-it-all comfort that clients are looking for, is more important than ever. These properties from InvitedHome are absolutely top notch – and offer the chance for clients to enjoy some of the most exclusive rental properties in this part of America.
“With the great news about travel to the US, this will open up a fantastic opportunity for agents for high-end ski lodges in Colorado, with a whole host of commissionable extras such as guided mountain experiences, skiing, chefs and snowboarding,” he added.
InvitedHome chief executive James Smith told the same publication: “ONEE makes it easy to work with experienced travel advisors. We’re seeing a growing trend with our top tier guests as more and more look to a travel advisor to facilitate their holidays. This is how the niche luxury travel industry works.”
The new properties will add to ONEE’s existing selection of villas in Europe, UK, Americas and Caribbean, UAE, South Africa, South Pacific, with more set to be added in the Indian Ocean, Asia and Australasia.
