Reservation Highway was established in 1999 to provide an up to date and efficient accommodation service to meet the needs of large conferences and exhibitions. We established a bespoke on-line booking system which enabled the company to offer a service far in advance of many of its competitors. Having built an extensive portfolio of events we are now a leading company in our field providing a specialised accommodation booking service to the conference and exhibition trade throughout the UK and Worldwide.
Due to a high demand from our clients we have expanded our services to include venue finding. We offer our extensive experience of the various venues to help source the best and most suitable venues for each client, whilst also advising on the availability and supply of accommodation to support the event.
Our team provide a wide range of experience and skills from the hotel, travel and event industries enabling us to offer expert advice and support in all areas.
We are a modern company providing a professional operation with a friendly and approachable manner. The on-line booking platform offers, immediate access 24/7 to hotel availability and rates and our well-manned call centre, which is non-automated, has all calls personally answered by reservation clerks happy to offer advice and assistance.
