Travelport, the travel technology provider, said it has tripled the number of hotel properties available in its Travelport Rooms and More hotel booking engine since its launch last summer. With new content recently added from leading hotel aggregators Hotelzon and Tourico Holidays, over 700,000 supplier offers are now available on more than 340,000 unique hotel properties.
Travelport Rooms and More formed part of Travelport’s heightened investment and focus in the fast growing hospitality sector. The booking engine combines meta-search functionality from Sprice.com, which was acquired by Travelport in May 2010, with Travelport’s core B2B expertise, to deliver a completely integrated hotel booking platform. It is now available in over 70 countries and six languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Polish).
Hotelzon and Tourico Holidays join 14 other leading hotel content suppliers on the portal, including Booking.com, Agoda, Hotels.com and LateRooms. The tool also contains Travelport’s extensive GDS hotel content (available to Travelport GDS subscribers only).
Hotelzon, an online B2B hotel booking technology provider, adds more than 100,000 additional hotel property offers. With 37,000 exclusive hotels that cannot be found via other distribution channels, Hotelzon offers a comprehensive European inventory that continues to grow organically. Tourico Holidays, a Travel Holdings, Inc. company, is a leading global travel brokerage company headquartered in Orlando. The company's core asset is its worldwide hotel network exceeding 37,000 individual properties across 4,500 destinations.
