Sometimes your next big adventure is only a short drive away. Hit the open road to explore America’s natural wonders and wide-open spaces, along with the local shops and restaurants that form the fabric of the community.
Best Western® Hotels & Resorts and American Tours International (ATI) are partnering to promote the American road trip holiday to travel professionals across the United States. Building road trip packages that feature some of Best Western’s most popular properties in iconic locations, ATI empowers travel professionals to capitalize on the current road trip travel trend that will continue into this fall and through 2021. ATI’s Drive America platform has been developed to allow travel professionals to easily book one of 120+ road trip packages or to design their customers’ road trip from scratch. By utilizing ATI’s Drive America platform, travel professionals can access Best Western’s lowest available rates for their customers while receiving substantial commissions.
Best Western is perfectly positioned as a brand to inspire travel professionals to seize the road trip trend, and not only due to its own storied history of establishing roadside accommodations. Recognizing that many of today’s travelers are opting for short-haul getaways and road trips, Best Western launched its Hit The Road campaign. As part of this campaign, travelers will rediscover their love for travel and enjoy a safe stay at Best Western-branded hotels.
This time of year, many of us are looking to reconnect with our families, visit areas with beautiful fall foliage, or just take some time away for ourselves. Best Western is proud to make traveling this autumn easy as well as clean and safe. As part of Best Western’s ongoing commitment to keeping travelers safe and healthy during these challenging times, we have expanded on our industry-leading cleaning standards with the launch of the new We Care CleanSM program.
This Autumn, Best Western and ATI want to inspire and empower travel professionals to help their customers discover nearby hotels ready to welcome them with updated breakfast offerings, enhanced cleaning practices, flexible cancellation policies, and other special offers that are all available on ATI’s Drive America platform. Travel professionals can book one of Best Western’s recommended road trips or put together their customer’s very own road trip staying at Best Western properties along the way!
