Wyndham International now makes it possible for travelers to plan more of their vacation than ever before by booking tours and attractions directly on the Wyndham.com site (www.wyndham.com).
Through a partnership with Viator, Inc., a global provider of destination content, technology and distribution services, Wyndham enables travelers to purchase tickets to New Orleans` French Quarter, Los Angeles` Universal Studios and Boston`s famous haunts - among other attractions - before arriving at their destination.
“This is one more example of how Wyndham is committed to using cutting-edge technology to customize guest experiences,” said Dave Johnson, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Wyndham International. “By allowing travelers to plan and book more of their trip at home on Wyndham.com, they can relax and enjoy their vacation from start to finish.”
From Albuquerque to Washington, D.C., Wyndham offers booking for tours and attractions in more than 29 cities nationwide. To purchase sightseeing tickets on Wyndham.com, guests simply visit www.wyndham.com, click on the property of interest and look for the `Tours & Attractions` link on the left side of the page.* This link leads to a page outlining a city`s most popular tourist activities, whether it be a wine country tour, river rafting adventure or dinner/dance cruise. Guests view an activity description, tour duration and price, plus links for additional information and booking options.
Once tickets are purchased, guests receive an online voucher that contains the reservation date and final price for their chosen activity. The voucher serves as their ticket and confirmation, and should be presented at the destination`s ticket office. Travelers are not required to book a Wyndham hotel stay in order to purchase a sightseeing tour through Wyndham.com.
“Our relationship with Wyndham is unique in that it allows Viator to reach business and leisure travelers in one place,” said Rod Cuthbert, CEO of Viator. “This service enables travelers to become more familiar with their destination while avoiding the frustration of long lines and sold-out events.”
