Refund of VAT in foreign hotels with hotel.info and VATithotel.info, the free online service with more than 210,000 hotels worldwide, has now entered into a cooperation with VATit, one of the world's leading services for the refund of VAT abroad. hotel.info contracted customers who book over their tailor-made company application now have the opportunity to receive a refund of all VAT paid in other countries* by using VATit.
The area of responsibility of corporate travel managers is increasing all the time. Apart from the optimisation of processes before and during travel there is an increasing demand for more information after the business trip. Particular attention should be paid to the topic of VAT that is of relevance for hotel stays abroad amongst many other things.
Through the cooperation with VATit hotel.info helps its corporate customers to take advantage of this untapped potential for more efficiency in the area of hotel bookings. Should the hotel.info corporate customer already be working with VATit then hotel.info passes this information on to the hotel. Afterwards VATit takes responsibility for the whole refund process without any cost to the corporate client.
Saul Goldstein, CEO at the VATit Group, says: We are excited at the prospects of our partnership with hotel.de which will facilitate faster and more efficient refunds for travelers. This will translate into significant cost savings for these corporations.
Peter Hildenbrand, Head of Corporate Sales at hotel.info comments: „In VATit we have gained a further professional. In this way we are offering added value to our corporate customers and can thus expand our service beyond the mere booking of hotels.“
*At the moment the VAT refund through VATit is possible in countries of the European Union and, amongst others, also from Switzerland, Croatia, Australia and South Korea. Further information can be found at www.vatit.com.
