July 28, 2014 Technology No Comments Email Email

Travelport, a leading travel commerce marketplace providing distribution, technology, payment and other solutions for the $7 trillion global travel and tourism industry, today announced a new agreement with TripAdvisor.

Through the agreement, Travelport will provide TripAdvisor users access to a broader range of hotel properties on TripAdvisor’s new instant booking feature. The new feature allows travelers to quickly and easily make a hotel booking through TripAdvisor booking partners without leaving the TripAdvisor site experience.

Travelport becomes one of the first major partners to provide booking capabilities for TripAdvisor’s instant booking feature, which was introduced last month and is currently available to U.S. travelers.

TripAdvisor will also use Travelport’s Universal API™, the first API (application program interface) with the ability to aggregate content from multiple sources, enabling an efficient, empowered online experience for travelers on TripAdvisor’s mobile applications.

Travelers using TripAdvisor’s mobile app and mobile website will now have direct, real-time access to inventory from Travelport’s booking system, offering seamless connectivity and the opportunity for travelers to book rooms from hotels across the globe.

“TripAdvisor’s instant booking feature allows travelers to quickly and easily make a hotel booking through TripAdvisor booking partners without leaving the TripAdvisor site experience,” said Robin Ingle, senior vice president, global sales, TripAdvisor. “Our partnership with Travelport expands the range of hotel options travelers can book seamlessly through TripAdvisor’s instant booking feature.”

“We are delighted to see TripAdvisor take advantage of the investments Travelport has made to enable highly efficient hotel distribution across all selling platforms, whether direct to consumers via mobile applications, such as TripAdvisor’s instant booking feature, or through other travel commerce platforms. Our agreement with TripAdvisor demonstrates Travelport’s global leadership position for businesses seeking easy and flexible access to the broadest range of hotel content,” said Niklas Andreen, Travelport’s group vice president and managing director, Global Hospitality, Car & Partner Marketing.
