Join The World Leader In Hotel Discount Programs!

Hotel Express International (HEI), founded in 1987, is the world's leading global hotel discount program. We have a distributor network with over 50 national offices and agreements with more than 9,000 hotels in 145 countries worldwide, all giving our members 50% discount off rack rates subject to expected availability. In the US the majority of our hotels offer a minimum 10% discount off their best unrestricted web rates which guarantees our members the lowest prices in the country. We currently have agreements with 5,500 such hotels in the USA, all of which can be booked online. This level of pricing is extremely attractive to our members. During recessionary periods they can benefit from even more choice owing to increased availability of hotel rooms, and our business members actively encourage their traveling executives to use their HEI cards because of their proven cost effectiveness.

Because we make our money from selling memberships and not from reservations, we don't mark up the prices from hotels with commission to ourselves. That keeps our prices for first rate hotels consistently attractive and cost competitive. In addition to hotels we have also secured 10% discount off best web price with National Car Rental and Sixt Car Rental & Limo Service.

"Our company has been a member of Hotel Express since 1990 and currently has 70 cards. Last year we saved about 1 million Swedish Kroner through our Hotel Express membership." - Harrieth Wigström, Ravema AB, Sweden

Hotel Express International memberships are sold and maintained for a modest annual membership fee via licensed distributors, through telemarketing, direct mail, business meetings and special marketing initiatives. With sufficient funding and efforts the right distributors can develop a profitable, long-term business. So popular has the HEI product been with our members that many of them have become distributors themselves!

Our customers are frequent travelers, mostly from small and medium sized companies. The memberships sold by our distributors consist of an embossed, personal Hotel Express card valid for one year, and a hotel directory. Our distributors also provide a free reservation service for travel abroad for their members, using our dedicated software. The quality of service offered results in an exceptionally high renewal rate of 65% to 90%. This level of repeat business makes this a low risk opportunity and is one of the best reasons to join. You really can build up a long term business when you have a stream of satisfied customers coming back for more. Using our cheaper, no reservation service silver card option you can also do deals with large organizations. Many of our distributors work with some of the best known banks, airlines and multinational corporations in the world.

"As we are all aware, the cost of international travel has become increasingly expensive and we are all looking at reducing costs. Since being in business for 30 years I can honestly say that I have encountered few products giving these kinds of returns for my business, resulting in significant savings." - John Flach, Reed Business Information, South Africa

Now launching in the US, a superb, recession-resistant opportunity

For as little as $1,000 plus delivery charges, you could get started as a Hotel Express distributor in the US. A distributor operates as a franchisee who remits royalty fees to HEI based on card sales. We are now launching in the US with three types of distributorship:

  • Nationwide distributor
  • State distributor
  • Authorized distributor
The Nationwide distributor will be an individual or company with sufficient financial capacity to develop our business nationwide. The Nationwide distributor will, having purchased the Exclusive Rights for the country, be responsible for building up the network of State distributors and Authorized distributors across the US, and will enjoy an income resulting from all the sales in the US, from the license fees paid by each State distributor and from all web sales made on the Hotel Express website. Full and thorough training, support, marketing materials and software will be provided by HEI. The cost for the Nationwide License is $100,000.

The Exclusive State distributor will be an individual or company with sufficient financial strength to develop our business in a state and will, having purchased the Exclusive Rights for his/her state, answer to the Nationwide distributor only. The Exclusive State distributor will sign up as many Authorized distributors as possible, generating his/her revenue from these distributors, and will also be able to sell memberships directly nationwide. Adequate training and support will be provided by the Nationwide distributor. Investment varies from state to state and ranges from $20,000 to $40,000.

The Authorized distributor is an individual or company who pays a small fee to purchase a start-up package and license to sell Hotel Express in the US. The Authorized distributor answers to the Exclusive State distributor and represents the main sales force for Hotel Express. The Authorized distributor will not be restricted to territory and will therefore be able to operate from a home office on a nationwide basis, focusing solely on the sale of memberships and receiving a credit for any new hotels he/she signs up to the Hotel Express program. Adequate training and support will be provided by the Exclusive State distributor. Investment starts at just $1,000 plus delivery charges.

Now is the time to take advantage of a franchise opportunity that can deliver success no matter what is happening in the economy.

"Hotel Express is the best investment and the most valuable card every traveler should have in his wallet. Being a journalist requires that decisions are made quickly which does not leave enough time to organize the best accommodation for the best price. From my experience I can simply say how pleasantly surprised I am with the quality and the performance of the HEI personnel. Not only did they send several offers in one day, but also anticipated my needs and preferences - what would be the most suitable accommodation and how would I feel in each hotel. For little money I gained the best deal, both for myself and for the company I work for. Hotel Express, I thank you for all the effort, effectiveness, kindness and the ability to read minds and anticipate one's wishes and preferences!" - Željka Laslavic, Journalist, Weekly business magazine Lider, Zagreb
