ORLANDO, Fla. (26-July-2013) –accesso,a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lo‑Q plc.(AIM:LOQ), has been named the exclusive ticketing solutions provider for AAA – The Auto Club Group (ACG), the second largest AAA club in North America, providing travel services to approximately 8.8 million members across 11 states and two U.S. territories.
AAA recently launched a brand new online attractions ticketing portal for their members that provides print-at-home delivery options to the Club’s largest Florida attractions partners – Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa and LEGOLAND Florida. Powered by the accesso Passport eCommerce ticketing solution, this single online storefront will allow AAA members to purchase and print discounted tickets to any of the theme parks without having to visit a AAA branch location.
“Providing discounted attraction tickets is one of the greatest value propositions we offer to our AAA members. Accesso’s solution will allow us to deliver print-at-home tickets to our members’ homes 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” Jennifer Butler, AAA Managing Director, Business Development, The Auto Club Group. “The new solution epitomizes AAA’s commitment to provide valuable member savings in the most convenient manner possible.”
“We are very excited about the opportunity to work with the most trusted brand in travel,” said Steve Brown, accesso Chief Operating Officer. “Our online tool will seamlessly step AAA members through the wide range of ticket options and special offers from some of the largest attractions in Central Florida while enhancing the club’s ability to sell and market attraction tickets to its members.”
Butler added that accesso’s ticketing platform will also drive efficiencies at the Club’s branch locations.
“A number of our members still prefer to visit our branches for travel planning assistance, and by incorporating this platform into our branches, our travel counselors will be able to offer enhanced service to our members when they visit us in-person as well,” said Butler.
