Travelport, a leading provider of critical transaction processing solutions and data for the global travel industry, today announces that Quickbeds.com has joined its industry-leading hotel booking engine, Travelport Rooms and More™. The implementation of hotel content from Quickbeds.com will provide an additional 4,200 Australian-based hotel offerings to the already extensive Travelport Rooms and More database.
Quickbeds.com (a division of Flight Centre Ltd) is the 21st supplier to be implemented in Travelport Rooms and More since the engine was launched in 2011. The engine was introduced by Travelport to help travel agents improve the efficiency of searching for hotel content across numerous websites and aggregators. It searches multiple sources on behalf of the user and returns an easy-to-read list of accommodation choices that optimises content choice and potential commission revenue earned. The commission on Travelport Rooms and More is on par or better than current solutions and is paid directly via Travelport as a single consolidated payment, simplifying the reconciliation process.
Niklas Andréen, GVP Hospitality and Partner Marketing, Travelport, says, “Enhancing our hospitality offering is one of Travelport’s core strategic focuses. We are delighted to welcome Quickbeds.com on board as a partner, adding extensive Australian hotel offerings which are often difficult to find. This partnership is an exciting development in the growth of Travelport Rooms and More as we continue to expand.”
Quickbeds.com Wholesale Brand Leader, John Feenaghty, says “Distributing our hotel content through Travelport Rooms and More is an important move for the B2B area of Quickbeds.com, as it significantly extends access to our portal for travel agents worldwide to search and connect with our large network of Australian hotels, motels and serviced apartments.”
Travelport Rooms and More is now available to travel agencies in over 70 countries. The portal has undergone significant enhancements since its launch and will continue to do so throughout 2013. It is currently available in six languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Polish.
