Lowcostbeds to Speed Up Online Access

Lowcostbeds to Speed Up Online Access

Lowcostbeds plans to speed up access to its properties for online agents in the next few weeks by introducing an improved version of its XML gateway.

Paul Riches, Group Director of Sales, said that the group has already more than doubled its long-haul sales through the trade in the past 12 months. The company now has around 100,000 hotels in its portfolio, including more than 20,000 long-haul properties. Lowcostbeds recently expanded into more long-haul destinations, with particular focus on the Caribbean, Far East and Australia, the USA and Middle East.

“We have been steadily building our long-haul business over the last few years through the trade, and now see the opportunity to really accelerate this growth,” said David Weatherson, Long-haul Product and Purchasing Manager. “We are not as well known for long-haul destinations as short-haul, but we aim to change that perception over the forthcoming months.”

New destinations include Kenya, Gambia, the Maldives, Mauritius and South America, with many new hotels sourced from international chains such as Centara, Hilton and Barcel.

“With our improved technology, we are now able to offer a much greater range of long-haul hotels than ever before,” added Paul Riches.
