Booking.com inks deal with beach site

Booking.com is joining forces with Onbeach.com, a new web site with information about thousands of beaches in Europe and the Caribbean. Onbeach.com offers visitors the possibility to find their perfect beach. Thanks to the cooperation with Booking.com visitors can immediately look at and book the hotels in the vicinity. From small Bed & Breakfasts to luxury five star hotels: everything is possible.

Gerben van Dam, founder of Onbeach.com, says: “Booking a beach holiday is not always easy. Usually people spend most of their time at the beach, but know little about it. This can lead to disappointments. Onbeach.com wants to give people the opportunity to find a nice beach and book a hotel to go with it. To simplify this process, we’ve paired reliable information on beaches with the Booking.com coastal hotels. Our cooperation with Booking.com makes perfect sense. Because of the large number of hotels in Booking.com’s database, Booking.com can offer our visitors relevant hotels. Moreover, the reservation system of Booking.com supports different languages through the same system, and that’s pretty unique. “

Sabrina Harmon, Account Manager Distribution with Booking.com: “It’s a pleasure to back Onbeach.com with our hotel supply. Onbeach.com has charted all the beaches of Western-Europe. Via preferences like tranquility, family, sports or food & drink, visitors can find the perfect beach and because of this cooperation also a fitting coastal hotel.”

Booking.com reports an organic growth of 82% and the site of the company receives over 20 million visitors per month. With 19 million room nights sold in 2007 the company is Europe’s market leader.
