Partner hotels RfQ:
Partner Hotels are included in a request for quoting specific to the area where a member club or association want to tour. The hotel submits their bid to the UKSDA. In turn the UKSDA analyse the offers.

Each element of the tour is considered, planned and costed. A final programme is prepared and submitted to the club. 

The hotel booking:
When the tour programme is agreed the club will confirm the booking directly with the preferred partner hotel.

Discounts, commissions, fees:
On behalf of the member the UKSDA negotiate with the partner hotel the options available to provide the best levels of service at the best possible price. 

Revenue Stream
On average a Partner Hotel receives an additional £72,000 of sales revenue through the partner programme.
