A new deal between Amadeus and Expedia Affiliate Network will enable agents to book EAN’s rates and availability at more than 350,000 hotels via the GDS.
The integration of business intelligence platforms will ensure each booking is tracked and analysed so agents can make the best decisions for their customers and gain maximum profits and rewards for their business, the companies claim.
Amadeus hotel distribution director Peter Waters said: “Travellers today demand a more personalised offer from travel sellers as they seek unique travel experiences.
“Having as much content as possible to choose from and reliable systems to process the search and booking is key for our customers.
“We are continuously working to make sure we deliver the best results for both these needs.
“Working in new and innovative ways with market leaders like Expedia Affiliate Network is a testament to this.”
Expedia Affiliate Network sales vice president Alfonso Paredes said: “Travel sellers connected to Amadeus will now be able to offer their travellers competitive rates and availabilities at more than 350,000 properties worldwide.
“Amadeus is a trusted technology partner for the travel industry, and we are excited to partner with them to offer cutting-edge technology and enterprise-class support so that Amadeus can deliver more choice to all travellers.”
