Expedia Affiliate Network recently announced its launch of a new platform, Hotels.com for Partners, aimed to help their partners (e.g. travel companies and airlines) gain access to the large data base of hotel availability and rates they have. The goal is to allow these partners to co-brand or white label with Hotels.com, with the end result being an increase in traveler spend and client loyalty.
The platform brings together differing elements from Hotels.com, including industry experience, expertise, and innovation, while also offering technical support and relationships that are brought in by the EAN team.
Hotels.com for Partners is unlike any other platform, as it provides partners with various accommodation options that offer the best conversion rates, which is thanks in most part, from the testing conducted by the technical team at Hotels.com.
Breaking Travel News partners also gain the unique advantage to a plethora of tools that offer easy transition, information to pertinent properties, and an all-around smooth experience when it comes to booking; from beginning, until end. Hand-in-hand with the technology and tools, Hotels.com for Partners will aid millions of travelers, when it comes to finding the best hotel to fit their vacationing needs.
Clients will gain access to a wide variety of hotels, with incredible quality and service, as well as competitively-priced within locations in the partner’s main destination; including tremendous package rates and deals, for those who already have booked a flight.
As well as a thorough collection of property lists from Hotels.com, partners also will receive full client support, as well as services from EAN. The EAN team will assist partners with data science, integration, account management, and optimization of the platform.
