italktravel became the second agency group, after TravelManagers, to enter an opulent relationship with online packaged deals site, Luxury Escapes, this week.

The agency group and online site signed an exclusive retail travel partnership agreement, that’ll make italktravel Agents the only retail consultants with the ability to sell and make a commission on Luxury Escapes’ travel packages.

italktravel’s General Manager of Sales, Jonathan Nelson, said the arrangement will allow consumers to book online luxury package, while still receiving the “value and service of a travel consultant”.

Luxury Escapes’ Head of Strategic Partnerships, Darran Keil, said he sees “great growth opportunity” through the partnership, and an opportunity to attract customers who prefer to buy travel in a retail travel environment.

“The opportunity to offer Luxury Escapes customers the choice to book through an experienced Travel Agent in a storefront environment is an added benefit to our growing travel community.”
