HotelsCombined has been awarded the 2016 World’s Leading Hotel Comparison Website by the World Travel Awards. This is the fourth consecutive year the hotel price comparison website has topped the category, outperforming the likes of Trivago, Kayak and Hipmunk, under these awards.
The World Travel Awards has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the global travel industry, with categories for hotels, airlines, destinations, online travel sites and more. Winners across each category are chosen for their contribution towards excellence in tourism, and their raising of industry standards in their product and service offering, including innovations.
Since it was established in 2010 in Australia, HotelsCombined has grown to more than 30 million monthly users globally, and aggregates more than five million deals within Australia and abroad in real-time, into one simple and efficient format. A hotel aggregator (metasearch engine), HotelsCombined is powered through partnerships with the world’s leading travel sites, agencies and hotel chains. The online service also provides an aggregated summary of hotel reviews and ratings from external sites.
Chris Rivett, Head of Marketing Australia and New Zealand at HotelsCombined, says: “We’re very proud to have won the award for the fourth year in a row. It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication by the HotelsCombined team around the world to ensure our 300 million plus customers are given the widest-range of best-value accommodation across more than 350,000 destinations. We’re looking forward to continuing to offer our guarantee of lowest prices on travel accommodation in 2017 and beyond.”
