Travelport, the business services provider to the global travel industry, announces that its Travelport Rooms and More™ hotel booking engine, the one-stop hotel shop for travel agents, now includes accommodation offers from the global market leader in online hotel sales Booking.com, which joins a number of other leading content aggregators on the portal, including Agoda, Hotels.com and LateRooms.
With Booking.com on board, Travelport Rooms and More customers now have access to practically all hotels and holiday properties around the world. An additional 115,000 hotels and holiday property offers have been added to the portal, with a further 65,000 to be included later in the year.
Niklas Andreen, GVP Hospitality and Partner Marketing, Travelport, said: “Booking.com is a key player in the European online hotel booking business. We are therefore delighted to be including them in our Travelport Rooms and More™ hotel booking engine.”
Travelport Rooms and More™ is available to all travel agencies in 68 countries, allowing them to book a greater choice of commissionable accommodation and take advantage of the rapidly growing hotel sector. Travelport began a phased rollout of the service in July 2011 and the portal has already undergone significant development and growth and will continue to do so throughout 2012. It is currently available in 6 languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish & Polish), with a total of 675,000 accommodation offers.
Dennis van Noord of Booking.com says of the agreement: “We are pleased with our partnership with Rooms and More and being part of their commitment in meeting customers’ needs. With highly competitive hotel rates, a vast choice of properties and the flexibility to make last minute reservations, we believe our partnership will deliver great value.”
