ID Travel Group has celebrated 40 years of luxury travel excellence and the launch of the new, 2024 Travelers Collection Brochure among hotel partners and top travel advisors at its annual gala event in New York City. In addition to the new brochure, the luxury tour operator also announced a travel advisor commission increase, now up to 17%, in support of the advisor community.

“None of this would be possible without a team of hundreds that are totally committed to our ethos, travel advisors, resorts and destinations that believe in our mission,” said Maurice Bonham-Carter, CEO of the ID Travel Group. “ID Travel Group is the essential “bridge” that brings us all together – travellers rely on the best travel advisors to plan stunning vacations, advisors rely on the ID Travel Group to make it happen, and our hotel partners rely on ID to deliver the very best guests,” Bonham-Carter added.
Laurie Palumbo, Partner & COO commented, “We are so very proud to be recognised as the Authority for Luxury Travel and we will continue to develop this business selling exclusively to travel advisors because we have always believed in YOU,” Palumbo she told attendees. “The ID difference is our passion and our belief in personalised service. Thank you for sharing in our vision.”
