Amadeus ties up with The Hotel Network
Amadeus strengthens its hotel offering following an agreement with one of Australia?s leading accommodation brokers, The Hotel Network, to provide travel agencies with greater access to independent, non-metropolitan and remote accommodation hotel content.
Powered by Amadeus LinkHotel, The Hotel Network will be connecting more than 250 Australian and New Zealand properties to the GDS for the first time, making them available to Amadeus-connected online and offline travel agents, TMC, and corporate and government customers.
Tony Carter, managing director of Amadeus?IT Pacific, said the agreement will also benefit the broader travel industry, providing easy access to difficult-to-reach hotel content from Australia and New Zealand.
?It hasn?t always been easy for travel agencies and corporations to book more ?off the beaten track? hotel properties,? he said. ?Traditionally, they would need to call or e-mail to make a booking, which isn?t an efficient use of their time. Our agreement with The Hotel Network makes life easier for the travel industry, allowing hotel properties to reach more travellers, and our travel agencies to service their customers better.?
