Preferred Tour Operators
The PTO category of membership is unique and exclusive within HCI. We carefully select each PTO to ensure that they represent diverse products that our HCI bank club members will find attractive to purchase. HCI's PTOs understand the unique needs and expectations of our bank clubs and are very motivated to provide the highest level of service to our members. And, if you have 15 passengers travel with our PTOs, your club director membership dues will be waived.
If you are a tour operator who is interested in becoming an HCI Preferred Tour Operator, please reach out to Tina Goeske. We are always open to partnering with companies that offer unique travel experiences to our members.

That is success for Hospitality Tours!
