TravelRes, Air Berlin sign partnership

TravelRes is intensifying its existing co-operation with Air Berlin and becoming a premium partner of Germany’s second largest airline.

Next to various placements within the Air Berlin travel environment, for example, logo presenters at Air Berlin ticket and check-in counters, partner billboards on the outside of airplanes, advertisements within the onboard TV programme etc., this premium co-operation comprises an increased online presence in particular. Consequently, TravelRes with its brand logo and booking engine, has now been positioned even more prominently at the spots relevant to booking a hotel under The hotel broker exclusively builds the hotel booking channel on the Air Berlin homepage and is on the spot with its hotel offers in the relevant destination, once the Air Berlin customer has finished his/her flight booking process. In addition to displaying the full TravelRes portfolio for a specific destination, Air Berlin flight bookers are also presented particular hotel offerings at discounted room rates.

Hence Air Berlin customers now have an even better access to TravelRes’ low-cost rates, thus saving on average 30% on their hotel expenses. For each hotel, all available rates (e.g. early-booker, promotional and best-price rates) are displayed, so that the booker can always book the lowest-priced room. Reservations will be delivered simultaneously and securely to the hotel’s computer.

“We are pleased to welcome TravelRes as our strong premium partner. By integrating TravelRes, we manage to offer our air travellers attractive hotel offerings at discount prices.” says Joachim Hunold, CEO of Air Berlin, based in Berlin, Germany.

“With this collaboration TravelRes taps another group of customers with a high degree of online affinity and considerable booking potential across Europe. After all, an air traveller is normally also in need of a hotel accommodation which he can now book easily straight after having concluded his flight booking.” explains Heinz Raufer, C.E.O of AG, TravelRes’ German parent company.
