Accommodation

Every day, we help 12,000 travellers book the right accommodation, at the right time, for the best value

We book over three million rooms every year and have access to over 300,000 hotels, guesthouses, budget properties, and serviced apartments globally. 

Over 40% of the properties on our system are independent, meaning we offer more choice than agencies solely reliant on a Global Distribution System (GDS) through which hotel rooms sell rooms.

Scalable savings

Whatever you spend on accommodation, we can make you significant savings against standard market rates without loss of quality.

Through our strong supplier relationships and buying power, we undertake customer rate negotiations with 180 global chains every year. Analysis shows that customer negotiated rates are 19% to 31% lower than online travel agencies and leisure sites.

A focus on the traveller

If you choose to book online, our hotel technology is unique and allows us to customise it to help manage your costs, programme, compliance and policy.

Our Traveller First programme provides exclusive access to a range of value added benefits, and thanks to our traveller tracking and security tool your travellers can be located quickly in emergencies.

Rate availability

We negotiate an ‘allocation’ of over one million rooms every year to guarantee availability of rooms at your negotiated rates.

By securing lower rates, you can benefit from any discounted prices which may apply. By doing so, we secure the right price at the right time without an increase in your average room rates, saving our customers between 7% and 32% on hotel spend every year.

Better value

Collecting over 95% of hotel commission versus 40% industry average, we help you benefit from fee offset models or revenue income through rebates. With detailed management information data you can make informed decisions on which suppliers and travellers you need to influence.

Compliant payment

We have flexible payment capabilities which are fully compliant with HMRC regulations.
