Acomodeo develops stronger partnership with Derag Livinghotels: more apartments, better prices

May 24, 2017 OTA News No Comments Email Email

Acomodeo.com, the first global direct booking platform for professionally-managed serviced apartments, is now working even more closely with Derag Livinghotels, the German market leader in serviced apartments. Through the direct integration of special prices for business travellers, the online portal improves its inventory by around 3,000 new rooms and apartments in 8 main locations across the German-speaking countries.Frankfurt am Main, 22 may 2017 – Starting immediately, approximately 3,000 apartments from the Derag Livinghotels brand are available with exclusive rates for business travellers via Acomodeo.com. With properties in locations like Berlin, Düsseldorf, Munich and Frankfurt, which are particularly interesting for business travellers and are frequently requested, Acomodeo is now in a better position to cover the current demand for professionally-managed serviced apartments with Derag Livinghotels.

Eric-Jan Krausch, founder and CEO of Acomodeo, emphasises another advantage: “Our goal is to make the booking of an apartment on a long-term basis as simple as a hotel room. Through the strategic partnership with Derag Livinghotels, we have been able to win an already established brand, which shares with us this goal and drives forward.”

Tim Düysen, CMO Derag Livinghotels said: “Online bookings in the field of serviced apartments, and the need for this form of booking, are growing steadily and gradually. As an independent provider, we have always put great emphasis on establishing our own in-house booking platform over the years. But we are also aware of the fact that, at this point, we need to be prepared in the best possible way to meet the needs of our business travellers, guests and customers without any loss of time. With our partner Acomodeo, we will continue to pave the way for new markets.”

Serviced apartments are the ideal long-stay accommodation for (business) travellers with professional requirements. The number of overnight stays has steadily increased over the last few years, but the booking infrastructure has not. As a result, it is not surprising that a proportion of bookings still have to be made over time-consuming enquiries by telephone or email. In order to make it easier for business travellers to choose a serviced apartment, the market of the apartment providers will have to adjust to the booking habits of the customers. Pre-negotiated special rates for business travellers, as they are known from the hotel industry, are an important first step.
