Travel agents bookings booking any Euro Villas, Ltd. property through June 30, 2013, will receive 12 percent commission, instead of the agency’s regular 8 percent commission.
Euro Villas Ltd., a marketing and reservations firm for short-term rentals of villas, apartments and houseboats in Europe, is also offering agents the opportunity to experience these accommodations at a discounted rate. Travel agent discounts range from 25 to 50 percent, depending upon the season and location. Most rentals are for a minimum of one week.
For example, a villa in Tuscany, accommodating up to 10 people, normally rents for $4,500 per week in the summer high season. The agent rate is $2,700 per week. Agents may invite family, friends or even clients to join them. Accommodations may be rented on a “self-catering basis” or fully-serviced.
Euro Villas Ltd. represents more than 800 properties throughout the continent.
