Hotelbeds agrees new enhanced partnership with TravelManagers to extend distribution reach in Australia

March 24, 2021 OTA News No Comments Email Email

Hotelbeds,  the world’s leading bedbank, has today announced a preferred deal with TravelManagers, a wholly owned subsidiary of House of Travel, with whom it signed a similar agreement just a few weeks ago.

The deal with TravelManagers, which operates independently from House of Travel, will enable Hotelbeds to further extend its retail distribution reach in Australia, through TravelManagers’ 530 personal travel managers (PTMs) operating in all states and territories.

In turn, TravelManagers’ PTMs will gain full access to Hotelbeds’ extensive portfolio of 180,000 hotel properties in 140 countries worldwide, many of which are contracted under special terms and conditions.

TravelManagers’ PTMs will also be able to offer their clients ancillary services from Hotelbeds’ ‘Beyond The Bed’ portfolio which comprises 25,000 transfer routes, 18,000 activities in more than 680 destinations, and 30,000 pick-up locations in 170 countries – all available on Bedsonline’s dedicated online portal for travel agents.

TravelManagers joins Hotelbeds’ existing portfolio of 60,000 travel trade buyers, with a quality profile that on average, attracts travellers that book higher value properties further in advance, stay for longer, have lower cancellation rates and spend more in-destination.

León Herce, Global Sales Director at Hotelbeds, said: “We are very excited to announce our preferred partnership with TravelManagers, the largest network of home-based mobile travel advisors in Australia.

“By extending our reach across the 530 PTM network of TravelManagers in Australia we are extremely well equipped to take advantage of the pent-up demand we know will be significant once international borders are open again. At the same time, our 180,000 hotels worldwide will benefit from this agreement by expanding their distribution reach in the important Pacific outbound market.”

Joe Araullo, CEO of TravelManagers Australia, added: “We are pleased to cement our partnership with Hotelbeds and strengthen the relationship in preparation for a travel resurgence.   As TravelManagers’ customer centric approach requires having access to a broad range of deals and hotels, we believe that Hotelbeds will continue to deliver and complement our expected demand in 2021 and beyond.”
