Uniglobe Travel International, a TMC, has partnered with The Apartment Service (TAS) to cater to travelers seeking alternatives to hotel accommodations. Uniglobe Apartment Services provides short- and long-term accommodations for itineraries of one week or more. Martin Charlwood, Uniglobe’s president and COO, said that especially when it comes to long-term business trips, many customers “crave the comforts of home when they travel abroad.” With this partnership, he said, travelers who book with Uniglobe can now choose from more than one million serviced apartments in more than 160 countries in addition to hotel accommodations. All properties come fully furnished with equipped kitchens and access to a washer/dryer. WiFi and housekeeping are included. Accommodations can be booked for a minimum of one week up to a year and include a choice of temporary serviced accommodation, extended stay, residences, apart-hotels and serviced apartments for corporate use.
