The Link Club has its own dedicated website: www.thelinkclub.com, where offers will be accessible to members only. With individual and corporate memberships available, The Link Club rewards everyone who places a booking with any of the participating residences featured in Ascott’s worldwide portfolio of more than 25,000 serviced units in 66 key cities and 22 countries across Asia, Europe and the Gulf, in three complementary brands: Ascott, Somerset and Citadines. As the world’s largest provider of serviced apartments, Ascott International can guarantee bookers a wide choice of residences for all requirements and budgets from the ultimate five-star luxury apartment with Ascott and a comfortable Somerset residence with leisure facilities (the ideal base for executives travelling the family) to a well located city centre studio with Citadines Apart’Hotels offering exceptional value for money.
The Link Club has selected an impressive group of preferred partners whose pledged support offers bespoke packages and rewards year round. The preferred partners are Elemis, Smartbox, Shymalay Ayurveda Spa, Jascots Wine Merchant, One for all Gift Card, Great British Heritage, Gordon Yates and Laurent Perrier. Each partner will also have a hyperlink on The Link Club’s website (www.thelinkclub.com) to its own site.
The system is simple: in return for their business, Link Club members accrue points that can be redeemed at any point during the 12-month period after they have been acquired. Rewards are both creative and attractive and have been tailored on two levels, one for individual and the other for corporate members. The Link Club also provides members, working in similar capacities, with an exclusive networking facility allowing them to communicate and exchange ideas.
Regional General Manager UK, Rebecca Hollants van Loocke, said: ‘We have been looking for a way in which to reward our many loyal bookers here in the UK. The enormous success The Link Club in Asia since its launch a couple of years ago has persuaded us to adopt the same format, tailored to suit the British market.’
Application for membership is open to all bookers from secretaries and PAs to human resources or training managers. Corporate membership is also available for individuals whose company does not allow individual rewards.
The launch event will be held at Ascott London Mayfair on Thursday September 10 from 6-9pm and every individual who has placed or plans to place business with Ascott International may apply.
