Hilton's centralized travel agency commission program is designed to efficiently track and pay your commissions on behalf of Hilton properties. Hilton only pays bona fide agencies that are registered with an accredited organization such as IATA or TIDS. Other acceptable associations are ARC, TSI, CLIA, ERSP, SATO, and TRUE. Agents must add or quote their membership number when booking. Currently, more than 99% of our hotels participate in the centralized travel agency commission program. Hilton utilizes the services of TACS for the disbursement of funds and the management of inquiries. This combination of technology and centralized processing is unmatched in the hospitality industry.
