Hotel Reservations Network, www.hoteldiscount.com, the Internet`s number one provider of discount hotel accommodations worldwide, and Transmedia Network Inc., the leading provider of transaction-based dining rewards programs under the iDine brand name, today announced a strategic partnership.
As part of the agreement both companies will co-market each other`s web sites providing millions of iDine members and HRN users access to dining rewards and discount hotel accommodations.
iDine members can take advantage of HRN`s deeply discounted hotel rates in more than 83 domestic and international markets and availability of hotel accommodations during sold-out periods at over 2,100 hotels. iDine consumers can book accommodations via the HRN link on the iDine website, www.idineprime.com, in both the Daily Specials and Benefits sections or by calling 800-278-9646. In addition, HRN users can enroll in the iDine dining rewards program via the iDine website and earn dining rewards at up to 7,000 restaurants in 59 US metropolitan areas.
``The teaming of our two companies is a natural association and HRN is pleased to partner with iDine. HRN and iDine provide consumers with the best values for their travel dollars, whether it`s on hotel accommodations or on dining,`` said Bob Diener, President of Hotel Reservations Network. ``This agreement significantly expands HRN`s value priced hotel rooms to millions of new consumers.``
``iDine`s 4,000,000 members travel a great deal, and their lodging and dining decisions are typically made together,`` said Gene Henderson, President and CEO of Transmedia Network Inc. ``The iDine and HRN partnership allows iDine members who are traveling to not only earn dining rewards at participating iDine restaurants, but also take advantage of discounted hotel accommodations.``
