Columbus, OH (December 22, 2010) — Reynolds Travel, a full service travel agent operating in Central Ohio has partnered with ResortGems.com to enable their customers to easily book resort vacations online at over 34,000 hotels and resorts, including over 7,000 listings available directly from timeshare owners. These “Gems” are typically offered to travelers for 30-50% less than prices found anywhere else.
According to ResortGems.com co-founder and CEO Bob Kington, “People looking for a vacation resort want to have a choice of high quality resorts from brands they can trust like Marriott, Wyndham, Hilton and Disney, but they also want the best price available. ResortGems.com offers rentals at all of these resorts, and has over 5,000 listings offered by timeshare owners who aren’t using them. These owners list their rentals at prices that are dramatically lower than the resorts themselves or other online travel sites. We’re excited that Reynolds Travel will be offering our service to their clients.”
Ike Reynolds, owner of Reynolds Travel added, “We’re very pleased to offer our clientele a new opportunity to book vacation rentals and hotels at a very competitive rate, offering another dimension to our new and existing clientele.”
