hotel.de AG operates a worldwide hotel reservation service through www.hotel.de, www.hotel.info, www.hotel.ch, www.hotels.cz, www.TravelRes.com, all other TravelRes websites and also other connected internet domains and is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading online hotel reservation service featuring over 210.000 hotels.
hotel.info allows business and private customers to book hotels of all categories throughout the world at preferred rates. The free and straightforward service is available at hotel.info or via the company’s own multilingual 24-hour call centre. The advantages for the hotel.info customer are numerous. Compared to other reservation channels such as travel agents, hotel.info offers its customers substantial price advantages. These primarily result from the preferential room rates granted to hotel.info because of the large booking volumes handled. Customers also benefit from a best-price guarantee on room rates whilst business travellers can enjoy the special rates available to corporate customers. In addition, hotel.info always shows all the room rates available for each hotel, so that the customer can choose the lowest or most suitable room rate according to the best-buy principle. Reservations may be made online or by phone for maximum convenience. A comprehensive range of services for both booking customers and hotel customers underlines the high service and quality standards of hotel.info.
On the supplier side, hotel.info offers its member hotels an additional distribution channel with a wide reach and a particularly effective target group approach. In addition to hotel.info’s myRES 2006 reservation system, the integration of external central reservation systems (CRS) of the member hotels on the hotel.info reservation platform allows the hotels to automatically update their available rooms at hotel.info. This obviates the need for complex manual updating, which usually accounts for a major share of a hotel’s distribution expenses. Compared to a hotel’s own distribution efforts, other online travel service providers and travel agents, hotel.info often offers not only a wider reach but frequently also a more cost-efficient distribution channel.
The significant efforts of the sales team in the past two years have been reflected in TravelRes being rated third place in Business Travel World magazine’s list of 50 leading hotel booking agents.
