RENT-A-RESORT’s portfolio includes properties and product across Europe, Africa, North America and the Caribbean, Asia, and the Indian Ocean. Top new properties available for 2021 include the ARIA Wellbeing Retreat & SPA in Italy, and the new Club Med Seychelles .
“It’s a challenging time for all in the travel industry but with the luxury sector poised to return first with demand for privacy and exclusivity higher than ever, we believe there’s a clear opportunity for success for RENT-A-RESORT. It’s a privilege to work with Daniel and his team to drive sales and raise the brand’s profile among key stakeholders in the UK market,” said Woodbridge-Cox.
