Amadeus agents worldwide will be able to book Expedia Affiliate Network’s rates and availabilities at more than 350,000 hotels worldwide through Amadeus, including full-service hotel brands, boutique hotels, and serviced apartments.
Travel sellers who take advantage of EAN’s competitive rates and availabilities through Amadeus Hotels will also benefit from a fully automated process, saving them time and money: from searching, to booking and to invoicing, the information is automatically transferred.
Some key benefits for travel sellers include:
A travel itinerary with all the details. Each booking generates a PNR (Passenger Name Record). This makes it simpler for travel sellers to consolidate all of the traveller’s hotel details plus flight, car rental, and other associated travel in one itinerary.
A variety of payment options means greater flexibility. Amadeus offers travel sellers multiple payment methods including pre-payment, post-payment via agency or traveller credit card, credit line, bank transfer, voucher, and more. This ensures travel sellers have greater flexibility in booking EAN’s rates and availabilities and that the hotel is paid as quickly as possible.
Fully automated process from searching to reporting: With Amadeus’ fully integrated technology, travel sellers booking EAN’s rates and availabilities will only need to input the booking details once.
