Please provide the information requested below to become a Certified Accommodations Vendor for Hawaiian Island Enterprises, LLC. HIE is booking thousands of ocean and island trips annually for Hawaii inbound tourists, and we are a respected and trusted leader in the Industry. We want to share our global network and allow our customers to make their Accommodations Reservations with you. Here is a list of our operating websites where your Accommodations Listing will be offered to our customers.
How Does It Work (Accommodations Bookings)
Our corporate website (www.GOHIE.com) specializes in Trip Planning Services for families and groups, while our other websites focus primarily on providing and booking Hawaii’s Ocean and Island Activities. As you can probably imagine, this is the main reason that we need your membership and listing. Our customers want a turn-key Trip Planning solution, start to finish, which must include Accommodations bookings.
On our websites, our customers have the option to plan and book their own Hawaiian Vacations, or they can choose to call and speak with one of our live customer service representatives. HIE will NEVER upsell or charge any additional booking fees to our customer, and your Accommodations Pricing must match exactly the prices that you are offering to customers who book with you directly.Accommodations Bookings
We prefer to send an email to your “centralized” Reservations Email address to make all our bookings, however, if it is required we are more than happy to also make our reservations by way of facsimile or even a phone call. You will be charging our customers credit card for the Accommodations reservations, and for their stay. The customers will arrive with a HIE Reservation Voucher that has your companies provided confirmation number and reservation information on it.
