UNIGLOBE Travel International has partnered with The Apartment Service (TAS) to cater to business and holiday travellers seeking alternatives to hotel accommodations.
UNIGLOBE Apartment Services provides short and long-term accommodations for itineraries of one week or more. Says UNIGLOBE president and chief operating officer Martin Charlwood, “Especially when it comes to long-term business trips, many of our customers crave the comforts of home when they travel abroad. With this partnership, travellers who book with UNIGLOBE can now choose from more than one million serviced apartments in more than 160 countries in addition to hotel accommodations.”
All properties come fully furnished with equipped kitchens and access to a washer/dryer. Wi-fi and housekeeping are included. Accommodations can be booked for a minimum of one week up to a year and include a choice of:
- Temporary serviced accommodation
- Extended stay
- Serviced apartments for corporate use
“I am delighted that TAS is now assisting UNIGLOBE with the delivery of extended stay and corporate housing solutions for their business clients”, says Charlie McCrow, CEO of The Apartment Service. “Business trips and assignments away from home are more frequently required than ever before and this option is widely preferred due to the cost savings and extra comfort provided by a larger living space on these longer stays away from home.”
Working globally to serve clients locally across more than 60 countries, UNIGLOBE Travel International leverages current technologies and preferred supplier pricing to save clients time and money on business and leisure travel services. Since 1981, corporate and leisure travellers have depended on the UNIGLOBE brand to deliver services beyond expectations. UNIGLOBE Travel was founded by U. Gary Charlwood, CEO and has its world headquarters in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Annual system-wide sales volume is $5.0+ billion.
