Travelport Triples its Rooms and More Hotel Content

Over 340,000 hotels are now available on the Travelport Rooms and More hotel booking engine, with Hotelzon and Tourico Holidays having recently signed up to supply content. The number of hotel properties has more than tripled since the tool was launched last summer. Over 700,000 supplier offers are now available on more than 340,000 unique hotel properties.

Travelport Rooms and More combines meta search functionality from Sprice.com, which was acquired by Travelport in May 2010, with Travelport’s core B2B expertise, to deliver a completely integrated hotel booking platform. It is now available in over 70 countries and six languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Polish).

Niklas Andreen, GVP Hospitality and Partner Marketing, Travelport, said: “The case for developing Travelport Rooms and More was a strong one as it complements our GDS hotel offering and benefits everyone in the supply chain. Importantly, it negates the need for leisure travel agents to search for hotel offers on multiple websites, instead allowing them to access and book commissionable accommodation offers through one quick and easy process. With agents in over 70 countries now using it, we are also offering leisure hotel suppliers an additional platform through which to market their content.”

Hotelzon and Tourico Holidays join 14 other leading hotel content suppliers on the portal, including Booking.com, Agoda, Hotels.com and LateRooms. The tool also contains Travelport’s extensive GDS hotel content (available to Travelport GDS subscribers only).

Hotelzon, an online B2B hotel booking technology provider, has added more than 100,000 additional hotel property offers. With 37,000 exclusive hotels that cannot be found via other distribution channels, Hotelzon offers a comprehensive European inventory.

Tourico Holidays, a Travel Holdings Inc company, is a leading global travel brokerage company headquartered in Orlando, Florida. The company’s core asset is its worldwide hotel network exceeding 37,000 individual properties across 4,500 destinations.

Jani Kaskinen, Chief Executive of Hotelzon, said: “We are delighted to be expanding our existing relationship with Travelport by joining Rooms and More and reaching out to a wider corporate and leisure audience, making our competitive rates and exclusive properties available to more travel agents across the globe.”

Jason Soss, President – Global Business Development of Tourico Holidays, said: “Rooms and More makes hotel bookings much easier for travel agents, eliminating the need for them to visit multiple booking sites, so this partnership is beneficial for all parties. We look forward to adding our extensive portfolio to the booking tool and helping Travelport to provide an even better service for its customers.”
