The hotel partners of Cloudbeds will gain access to Hotelbeds’ 60,000 plus B2B travel buyers, including retail travel agents and tour operators. Cloudbeds’ inventory of 22,000 hotels, hostels and vacation rentals boosts Hotelbeds’ inventory for the benefit of its travel trade clients.
Sebastien Leitner, director of global partnerships, Cloudbeds said: “Our partnership with Hotelbeds is an exciting milestone for us and we’re very proud to be partnering with a leading business-to-business bedbank worldwide. We look forward to helping our hotels to increase their sales and boost profitability through offering them access to the hard-to-reach B2B buyers Hotelbeds offers, such as retail travel agents, tour operators, loyalty schemes and airline websites.”
The accommodation provider partners of Cloudbeds will benefit from the guests that Hotelbeds’ B2B travel buyers typically offer, including guests that book earlier, pay more, cancel less, stay for longer and spend twice as much at the destination.
Adam Krzciuk Kuna, head of supplier connectivity partnerships at Hotelbeds said: “We are really happy to partner with Cloudbeds to boost our distribution network and feel that their hotel partners will benefit immensely from gaining access to our over 60,000 B2B travel buyers. We are starting a new era in relationships with channel managers and we want to recognise their great importance to our business; that’s why we recently launched a new preferred partnership programme for channel managers and we´re very excited with Cloudbeds being one of the first participants.”
Through its suite of tools, Cloudbeds gives all partner properties access to the hospitality management technology. This gives hoteliers the opportunity to grow reservations and automate their workflows.
