A renewed distribution deal has been struck between Hilton Worldwide and Travelport.
The new Travelport agreement ensures that Hilton’s 4,112 hotels, resorts and timeshare properties will continue to be made available through the technology company’s travel commerce platform to travel agents worldwide.
Hilton Worldwide global sales distribution and services senior vice president Eduardo Schutte said:
“Extending our partnership with Travelport is an important part of our overall distribution strategy and we very much value their extensive worldwide network of travel agency customers as well as the focus and investment they have clearly made in enabling highly efficient hotel distribution to the travel trade.
“Through this agreement, Travelport-connected travel agents across the globe can readily shop and book from a choice of over 680,100, rooms in 92 countries.”
Travelport UK and Ireland managing director Simon Ferguson added: “Hilton is one of the most recognised global brands in the hospitality sector and we are therefore delighted to be not only renewing our partnership with them, but also continuing and deepening our collaboration.
“Offering unrivalled hotel content through our travel commerce platform is a key component of Travelport’s long term ‘beyond air’ strategy and Hilton is a highly valued partner for us in this space.”
