FASTBOOKING, an online solutions provider for the hospitality industry, has reached an agreement to distribute its client properties via Travelport’s recently-launched hotel booking platform, Travelport Rooms and More.
An improved version of existing online leisure portal Travelport Leisure, Travelport Rooms and More allows agents to compare deals and commissions across aggregators – thanks to meta-search technology from Sprice.com, which was acquired by Travelport in May last year (TTG Asia e-Daily, June 29).
FastBooking said in a press statement that the partnership would “boost the visibility of its client hotels among the 65,000 connected travel agency customers in the worldwide Travelport network and create more high-value opportunities”.
Alain Hirschfeld, marketing director, business development for FastBooking, added: “Our goal is to increase our hotels’ online business with travel agencies worldwide and to consolidate our position in this high-potential segment.”
Other aggregators that have joined the Travelport Rooms and More bandwagon include Agoda, Kuoni Connect, LateRooms.com, Transhotel, Ctrip, Zuji, Cleartrip and TUI Cars.
