Hilton Joins Galileo’s Best Rate Programme

Hilton International has joined Galileo’s Best Available Rate programme, providing all Galileo-connected travel agents with access to their best available unrestricted rates.
The addition of Hilton International to the programme brings the number of participating hotel brands to over 40, and adds 200 additional hotels in 70 countries.

Best Available Rates are currently loaded and available for booking through Galileo. Signed participants in the Galileo Best Available Rate programme represent nearly 38% of Galileo’s hotel booking traffic worldwide and the GDS expects more chains to join in the near future.

“We are very happy for Hilton International to participate in Galileo’s Best Available Rate program,” said Tim Davis, Senior Vice President Distribution and E-commerce, Hilton International. “Galileo Best Available Rate (BAR) is an excellent means of building trust with the guest in today’s cluttered marketplace so they have the confidence to book. We announced in September a set of terms and objectives for our distribution deals and we are delighted to be able to work with Galileo to achieve these objectives within these parameters.”
