ORBIT DIRECT An extension of the Orbit Plus+ preferred programme

Peak periods for accommodation in central city locations can pose a problem for business travellers and the business they travel for. This is because they often experience significant cost fluctuations as well as availability constraints. This accommodation conundrum got Orbit thinking about what we could do to ensure our clients have surety that they are getting the best available rates as we move throughout the year with peak and low seasons, as well as access to quality providers when accommodation gets tight.

The solution? Orbit Direct Orbit Direct is a service which partners with selected preferred hotels to provide exclusive access. Because these rooms are held for Orbit, our clients can access better rates, and these rates are provided consistently and throughout the year. Orbit Direct will be of particular benefit when accommodation availability is low. Orbit Consultants can book these rooms on our client’s behalf and they are accessible via our online booking tool, Orbit Online.


ORBIT PLUS+ Orbit’s preferred supplier programme

Orbit Plus+ is Orbit World Travel’s preferred supplier programme, giving you access to industry leading rates and exclusive benefits from our key suppliers and industry partners. As one of the largest travel providers in New Zealand, we have the negotiating power to secure the most competitive rates in the market. Orbit Plus+ provides excellent rates and additional benefits across major airlines, top-rated taxi, shuttle and rental car companies, and an extensive range of accommodation providers throughout New Zealand, Australia, and worldwide.

Added value with Orbit Plus+ Many of our hotel partners offer last room availability. This means if the hotel is getting full and charging peak prices for the rooms, Orbit (and our clients) will still be able to access the rate without a price increase should rooms be available at the hotel. • • •

We also know that business travel requirements can change. We have negotiated a short cancellation policy for maximum flexibility. As an Orbit client, you also won’t pay extra for Wi-fi access as it is always included as part of our negotiated rates. Orbit make careful and critical examinations of each property. The properties are vetted at least three times annually and are regularly reviewed and monitored to ensure minimum quality standards, no matter what the star rating is.
