Welcome to TIDD and the world of Industry Discounts...
The original paper version of the Travel Industry Discount Directory (TIDD) first appeared back in 1998 when I was a Qantas Duty Manager at Cairns Airport. I was often asked by Qantas staff arriving in Cairns for their holidays if I knew of any hotels that gave an industry discount. This first paper version listed about 20 hotels in Cairns, however It wasn't long before I was getting requests for other destinations and so followed the Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne. The internet was still in its early days and in February 1999 I created a basic website replicating the pamphlet. Move ahead 20 years and TIDD is still going strong with listings for over 6,500 hotels worldwide. After 28 years service I retired from QF in 2013, but I still love to travel and I enjoy running TIDD just as much as I did back in 1999.
Today's version of TIDD allows you to easily browse hotel travel industry rates by destination, compare the various hotel industry rates and then make a booking, either by making an industry rate booking direct using special pre-loaded codes in the hotel's own reservation booking engine, or with some of the smaller hotels by emailing the hotel direct using the TIDD booking form.
Please note that the TIDD website is purely an information service. All contact information for the relevant hotel is supplied. All bookings are made direct with the hotel using the hotel's direct link booking engine, or the "Book/Enquire Now" link within each listing - see disclaimer.
If I can be of any assistance at anytime please do not hesitate to contact me.
