Now, Otedis can provide us with distribution on the biggest GDS worldwide at an accessible price pour one to two stars hotels.

It allows us to still manage our properties’ availabilities from a single planning, whatever the distribution channel is.”

The partnership between Optims and Amadeus, allows us to open GDS channel to these hotel categories. There is a strong demand for that type of properties and the growth should be exponential. Otherwise, we are delighted that Bonsaï Hotels renews its confidence in Otedis. It is a pledge of quality, reliability and satisfaction of our customers.”
