CheapoAir.com taps into hotel content

CheapoAir.com Cheap Airfare and
Budget Travel Web Site has signed a distribution
agreement with TouricoHolidays.com, one of the largest hotel portals in the
world. CheapoAir.com.com will utilize Tourico’s hotel properties to create
hotel and air dynamic packages to sell to its more than 1 million online
customer base. TouricoHolidays.com has one of the most diverse
hotel-negotiated rate portfolios in the world.

  CheapoAir.com and its technology partner, Fareportal, will integrate
Tourico’s XML feed of hotel properties database into Fareportal’s
proprietary booking engine. This XML feed will allow real time data and
2-step booking capability. Fareportal has access to more than 80,000 hotels
through Sabre Travel Network and Amadeus Global Distribution System.
Tourico’s hotel inventory will be additional content on CheapoAir.com’s web
site.
  Katie Schwartz, Vice President of Marketing at CheapoAir.com had this
to say—“By adding Tourico’s hotel inventory, CheapoAir.com will have one
of the most competitive hotel pricing options available to its more than 1
million client base of online travel buyers. CheapoAir.com will be able to
leverage these specially negotiated rates and combine them with its own
exclusive airfares to offer discounted travel packages.”
  “CheapoAir.com brings an excellent distribution channel for the more
than 11,000 hotel properties in Tourico’s network,” said Jason Soss, Senior
Vice President, Consumer and Affiliates. “With the integration of Travel
Holdings hotel inventory for distribution of dynamic packages on its web
site, it’s confirmation of the quality and value of CheapoAir.com and our
partnership.”
