WAYN.com partners with Hostelworld

20th Sep 2007

WAYN.com (Where Are You Now?), has signed an agreement with Hostelworld.com.

The agreement will provide WAYN’s 9 million members, when they are planning their future trips, with the ability to search for and book hostel & budget accommodation in over 165 countries. WAYN Members will also get to see who’s been, who’s going and who wants to go to the same places as them, and share experiences with others.

This deal paves the way for WAYN.com to beef up its travel service offerings, having recently signed an agreement with lastminute.com to integrate hotels content and booking into its soon to be re-launched travel platform. Hostelworld.com, part of Web Reservations International (WRI) are the world leaders in hostel and budget accommodation having amassed over 8 years of online booking experience and content generation.

Co-founder and Co-CEO of WAYN.com, Peter Ward remarked ‘This partnership means that our members will not only find it even easier to share their recommendations on the best places to stay when they travel, with their friends and others, but it also means that they will have access to an excellent range of accommodation to choose from at all budget levels, with prices starting from only £5 per night. We’re really excited to be working with such a well recognized and trusted brand, which comes highly recommended amongst travelers and tourists alike.’

Ray Nolan, CEO and Founder of Hostelworld.com, said ‘We’re really happy to be working with WAYN.com and see this as a great opportunity for us to provide a rich user base of informed travelers with the best possible range of choice when it comes to booking their hostel or budget accommodation arrangements online. We’re looking forward to launching this new offering with the WAYN.com team in the coming weeks!’


The ‘WAYN Hostelworld’ content and booking facility will be available for WAYN members to benefit from in early November in all countries.
