February 13, 2009 - At a time when “flat” has become the new “up” for most travel companies, Luxury Link exceeds industry standards with consumer sales on the rise.
Smart Money, Conde Nast Traveler, Business Week, Travel & Leisure, NBC Nightly News and the New York Times have all been talking about Luxury Link’s surprising trend - showing substantial spikes in luxury travel while others have fallen short.
In December 2008, when sales conversion was a challenge for most retailers – travel companies especially – Luxury Link recorded 30% growth from the previous year and the trend is continuing. Thus far in 2009 the number of new buyers on Luxury Link has grown 27% and member hotels and cruise lines have posted 36% more packages on the Luxury Link Web site. (Luxury Link consumers have an average household income of $175,000 and average age of 45.)
The truth is luxury consumers are still traveling. They’re just looking for smarter choices. And with a half million of these affluent buyers coming to Luxury Link each month searching for savvy travel options, the numbers don’t lie.
