Amadeus travel agencies can now book over 4,000 additional hotels from hotel.de and HotelAG (Hotel Accommodation Group). Amadeus has taken the total number of hotels bookable in Amadeus to over 61,000.
hotel.de offers Amadeus 2,000 new hotels. HotelAG provides Amadeus with over 2,000 hotels in Europe, including Spain, Portugal, Greece, Italy, France and Germany, offering competitive rates for every taste and budget.
Heinz Raufer, Chairman of hotel.de states, “Travel agencies are increasingly specialising, handling more complicated bookings and offering more varied services. This content integration is an opportunity for us to benefit from each other. From our perspective, our hotels benefit from an additional distribution channel, where more than 75,000 travel agencies now have access to their inventory in 215 markets worldwide.”
The new hotels are available to off- and online travel agencies connected to Amadeus, including Opodo, and to corporate travellers via Amadeus e-Travel Management (Aergo). “Amadeus is continuously looking for opportunities to enrich its hotel content, as is highlighted by these two key hotel additions in our system,” comments Antoine Medawar, General Manager, Amadeus Hospitality. “We will continue to help travel agencies secure a profitable revenue stream by providing them with more essential hotel content.”
Travel agencies will be able to view photos of the 4,000 hotels, with rich text descriptions of the facilities, and have access to the hotels’ rates. The hotels will be available in Dynamic Access - the highest level of connectivity to the Amadeus system, offering real-time information and rates in both Multi- and Single Property Displays. Currently, over 75% of all bookings in Amadeus hotel reservation are made on Dynamic Access.
