Interview TTG Italia: Hotelier Vip, the community that makes hospitality professionals travel for free

  • Hotelier Vip

Free vacation also for the family, transferable to employees and business associates. Possibility of accommodation in Hotels, B&Bs, Resorts, Residences, Farmhouses and Holiday Homes.

"With our portal for the exchange of free stays reserved for hospitality professionals, we first and foremost wanted to create a community that would encourage the meeting of colleagues operating in every corner of the world. All this by offering opportunities to stay in facilities of the most varied types and the possibility of sharing different professional experiences." What Elena Coribello, COO and Founder of Hotelier VIP, talks about is to all intents and purposes a vacation-study opportunity reserved for owners of hospitality facilities who, taking advantage of the trip, get to know other professionals in the hôtellerie, pooling the skills they have acquired over time.

"Joining the exchange program," he adds, "also allows members to travel free of charge around the world, guests in selected facilities provided by other hoteliers.

How exactly does the Hotelier VIP community work?

To join the community, the prerequisite is to be an accommodation owner and submit an application through the Hotelier VIP site. When our team has verified that the facility meets all the necessary requirements, you will get the access keys for membership.

What's next?

Once admitted, the new member will have to provide the community with one to three weeks of usable stay at their facility. The Hotelier VIP team will then award him or her with an HVPoint Exchange Power commensurate with the facility's reputation, the size and type of the accommodation, and the roster of services offered.

With the score acquired, the member will in turn be able to book free stays at the facilities of other community members.

I would like to point out that these stays are available not only to the member along with any family members or friends, but also to his business partners or his own employees, as a benefit. To do this, it will be sufficient to apply for a Guest Certificate to be shown to the host facility.

Are there constraints with respect to seasonality?

Absolutely not. By connecting different areas of the world, the portal allows availability to be given at any time of the year so that each guest can assess the dates of stay according to his or her work and personal needs.

What if those who wish to book have not reached the number of HVPoints needed to stay at their chosen facility?

They will be able to purchase additional HVPoints at a cost of 1.00 euro per point and up to a maximum of 200 points.

What are the benefits for hosts?

Those who host a colleague receive 200 Special HVPoints as a reward, which, unlike HVPoints, do not expire. And, in addition, he or she will have the HVPoints from the stay enjoyed by the host turned into more SHVPs without expiration.

What happens if you wish to stay in periods other than those indicated or if you need to change the dates booked?

To stay in a period other than the one indicated in the catalog, you can send a request to Hotelier VIP, which, in turn, will check the requested availability. Date changes, on the other hand, are freely made, subject of course to checking that other members have not previously booked the same slot.

Is there a membership fee to join the community?

Membership is totally free of charge while, as a reimbursement for administrative and management expenses, there is an Exchange Fee of 195 euros to be paid upon confirmation of the reservation of the stay. So, when you are ready to leave.
