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. TravelClick and Travelport have built a strong partnership over the last three years and TravelClick is excited to now offer all of Travelport’s innovative products.”
Niklas Andréen, GVP Hospitality and Partner Marketing for Travelport said: “Travelport has the largest inventory of hotel properties on any travel platform in the world. Of the 600,000 hotel properties we serve, over 500,000 of these 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 and I’m thrilled that we’re extending our already strong relationship. 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.”
