Travelport and TravelClick Expand Partnership
“Travelport Featured Property” now available for purchase through TravelClick
Travelport has announced it has expanded its partnership with TravelClick, a global provider of innovative cloud-based solutions that enable hotels to grow revenue.
The expanded relationship will allow TravelClick to sell advertising products to hotels for display to the 67,000 Travelport connected travel agency customers around the world. It includes access to key Travelport products such as Travelport Featured Property, which offers priority placement of a hotel during a travel agent’s search, providing hotels with a clear, visible advantage at the point-of-sale. TravelClick’s product offerings continue to include Travelport Headlines, which displays hotel advertising directly on travel agency screens.
“Travel agents serve a unique audience and generate a higher average daily rate,” said Jason Ewell, Executive Vice President, Product for TravelClick. “Travelport Featured Property is another proven program that helps hotels to capture bookings from travel agents,” Mr. Ewell added.
According to an announcement, Travelport has the largest inventory of hotel properties on any travel platform in the world. Of the 600,000 hotel properties Travelport serves, over 500,000 are independents. “TravelClick works with tens of thousands of hotels and crucially, has local, on-the-ground experts that understand conditions in their area as well as the broader hotel business. This makes them the perfect partner,” Niklas Andréen, GVP Hospitality and Partner Marketing for Travelport said.
“In addition to Travelport’s own sales team, TravelClick will help us reach more hotels and in turn, allow them to increase their visibility on our Travel Commerce Platform through our new and innovative products,” Mr. Andréen added.
