Expedia Affiliate Network has confirmed it will now power its hotel bookings through Japan’s JALAN, one of Japan’s largest hotel reservation websites, operated by Recruit.
In addition to JALAN’s own inventory, JALAN will be adding a selection of Expedia Affiliate Network’s global inventory to its hotel portfolio, bringing the total number of international hotels offered by JALAN to over 80,000.
This new integration also extends the reach of EAN’s hotel booking platform to JALAN’s more than five million monthly visitors.
“We are pleased that JALAN has selected EAN to expand their international hotel inventory, a testimony to the solutions that EAN offers its partners,” said Jens Uwe Parkitny, managing director, Expedia Affiliate Network, Asia Pacific.
“Japanese travellers now have even more access to great inventory, rates, and customer service.”
JALAN is using the new EAN Hotel API v3, which delivers Expedia’s expansive global hotel selection, booking tools and great rates on a private label basis.
“We’re excited to work with Expedia Affiliate Network to enhance the booking experience for JALAN’s customers,” said Kentarou Mori, executive manager, Global Market Development, RECRUIT.
“Their API booking platform offers a huge inventory selection alongside fantastic rates, and JALAN customers will earn 2% loyalty points on all bookings made.”
