B2B wholesaler JacTravel has secured a deal with the largest travel agency in Hong Kong.
The agreement enables Travel Expert’s 700 staff across 60 branches to connect directly to UK-based JacTravel’s accommodation inventory.
This will provide real time access to pricing and availability to more than 12,000 directly-contracted hotels and an additional aggregated portfolio of over 130,000 properties.
Travel Expert chief operating officer Alfred Tam said: “We are very pleased to add JacTravel as an accommodation provider.
“It has a broad selection of directly contracted city centre hotels in major destinations around the world, which will enhance our offer and it has a reputation, built up over 40 years, for excellent client service, which provides valuable reassurance that we will be in good hands in the event we have to deal with something unexpected and beyond our control.”
JacTravel Asia Pacific head of sales Ben Wood added: “Travel Expert is a great credential for us as it is very well-known as a specialist in independent travel, providing holidays packages to Australia, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and South East Asian destinations.
“However, more importantly, it has an outstanding reputation, built on a heritage dating back more than 30 years.”
