How our service helps your recruiting budgets
In addition to team travel, Collegiate Sports Travel, Inc. is also dedicated to assisting your Coaches in scouting and recruiting by offering complimentary or highly discounted rates while still maintaining a high level of quality and service. We understand the importance of recruiting the student athlete and giving your coaches quality hotels and at the same time saving your recruiting budgets
It’s simple….recruiting trips/rooms are a huge part of the budget for every University, “some” more than others. By saying “some”, we’re talking about the Universities that DON”T use Collegiate Sports Travel because if you use us, we will save you money. Our staff of extremely experienced “Sports Specialists” is dedicated to finding and booking the lowest rate possible for your coaches at the very best hotel available. They call us, text us, email us…. whatever is easiest for them. We handle it all….
Each year, we solicit hotels through our major brands – i.e. Marriotts, Hiltons, IHG, Choice. LaQuinta, etc. and ask them to submit recruiting rates from any and all hotels interested in obtaining transient business. In return, we assure them that they will be allowed to bid on any and all teams that are playing in their area…it’s that simple.
We also book Marriott VIP rates if your coaches prefer Marriotts as well as Hilton MVP rates, state government rates, etc.. If a city is full, we will dig and search every hotel available until we find a room for the coach…..
Collegiate Sports Travel will provide the very best in accommodations for your coaching staff using all of our resources including pre-set rates with our partner hotels, Marriott VIP rates, Hilton MVP rates, Choice Sports Travel rates, Wyndham Worldwide recruiting rate and many others. This service is absolutely free to the Universities if we handle your team travel
