Amadeus signed a landmark hospitality distribution agreement with Booking.com to integrate its accommodation content into the Amadeus Travel Platform for the first time. Amadeus’ extensive travel seller network will make Booking.com’s content available to even more travellers worldwide. Every day more than 1.5 million room nights are reserved across 228 countries and territories worldwide via the Booking.com platform. Thanks to a new partnership between Amadeus and Booking.com, travel sellers will now be able to access the vast and rich content of the company’s extensive listings. This includes everything from hotels, motels and resorts to homes, apartments and many other unique places to stay provided by Booking.com through the Amadeus Travel Platform.
As a result of this partnership, travel sellers will directly benefit from an increase of 30% in the accommodation options made available by Amadeus. They will be able to access the new content in the coming months through multiple points of sale including Amadeus Selling Platform Connect and, for corporate bookers, through Amadeus Cytric Travel & Expense.
Ripsy Bandourian, VP of Partnerships at Booking.com, said, “We’re constantly on the lookout for strategic collaborations that can enable us to reach even more people around the globe, empowering them to easily discover and book their ideal travel experiences via Booking.com.”
Jorge Elliott, EVP of Travel Content Sourcing, Travel Channels, Amadeus, said, “We’re confident that the partnership between Amadeus and Booking.com will bring a number of benefits to our travel seller community. Amadeus’ technology combined with Booking.com’s content means that travel sellers can search, book and integrate Booking.com’s content seamlessly, ensuring the booking process is simple, and trips can easily be customised for travellers.”
Peter Waters, EVP, Hotels, Mobility & Insurance, Amadeus, said, “Hospitality is a top priority for Amadeus and we are actively investing to further enrich our portfolio in terms of both IT and content.”
