Hotelbeds can now confirm that the 180,000 hotel properties available in its platform globally now have access to over 15,300 B2B travel buying clients – such as tour operators, airline websites, points redemption & loyalty partners, and travel agency groups – in the Americas region, including North, Central, and South America.
Moreover, the region now accounts for around one quarter of the company’s 60,000 B2B travel buyers globally.
B2B travel buying clients are attracted by the quality of Hotelbeds’ portfolio of over 180,000 hotels (with around half of those directly contracted under exclusive terms), 24,000 transfer routes, 18,000 activities, and 500 car rental suppliers.
Collectively the Americas regions represent one of Hotelbeds’ most thriving source markets for its hotel partners – overall taking 2nd place as the largest source region for hotel partners distributing via Hotelbeds.
Lauren Volcheff Atlass, Regional Director of Wholesale Sales Americas at Hotelbeds, commented “Our extensive client portfolio in the Americas source region truly brings incremental value to our hotel partners. We have been laser focused over the last few years on acquiring and growing clients that bring the most benefit to our hotels. We understand that to have the best offering to our clients, we must bring the most value to our suppliers.
“The number of tour operators, retail travel agents, airlines and points redemption partners in our portfolio continues to grow and our hotel partners are already benefiting from these additional buyers, that offer non-domestic and high-value guests that on average pay more, stay for longer, cancel less, spend more in destination and return more frequently.”
“As more buyers come on board, we continue to secure exclusive agreements with many of these airline and point redemption clients either across their business, specific opaque channels or as marketing agreements that feature our partner hotels.”
