Company background

Located in Europe’s most central city, Luxury Travel Networking was founded in 2004 to offer a cost-effective, bespoke, one-stop-shop solution for 5 star hotels and providers of other luxury travel experiences to reach out and connect with qualified buyers. From the onset we chose to focus not just on a single source market, but rather Europe as a whole. To this day, our vision remains to use our vast hotel marketing and sales expertise to generate quality exposure and drive premium rate business to our clients from both the traditionally strong markets like Germany to the newer markets of Russia and beyond.

Acting for our clients from all over the world as sales ambassador, lead generator and guide to the premium segment of the European travel industry, we open the doors to qualified buyers, both for FIT and high-end MICE business. From our base in central Germany, we connect our clients seamlessly to Europe’s very best, from the VIP travel designer in Almaty to the luxury travel concierge in Zürich.

Luxury Travel Networking is proud to have successfully supported the European launch of the global ultra-luxury Capella Hotel Group, the exclusive Cap Estel (Côte d’Azur, France), the Costa Rican boutique resort El Mangroove, the Abama Golf and Spa Resort (Spain), Borgo Egnazia (Italy), as well as the uniquely high-end European river cruising experience, Premium Queen.
