Totalstay seals Amadeus hotel distribution deal

Jac Travel owned Totalstay has sealed a hotel distribution deal with Amadeus.

This will make 165,000 hotels in more than 10,000 locations available for agents to book via the GDS.

The full market implementation for the UK and Ireland is planned for April, enabling agents to access Totalstay content in time for the summer holiday booking period.

Jac Travel commercial senior vice president, Angela Skelly, said: “By partnering with Amadeus we are able to bring Jac Travel content to more travel partners under our Totalstay brand.

“Our inventory of 165,000 properties – including 12,000 handpicked, directly contracted hotels plus direct connectivity with leading chain hotels – offers enough range to meet everyone’s needs whether they use high street agencies or major tour operators.

“We provide instant access to competitive rates, with hotel availability updated in real-time to ensure travel agents can guarantee rates and accommodation to their customers, ensuring a better customer experience.”

Amadeus head of product and innovation, Clare de Bono, said: “The travel industry is rapidly changing, and hoteliers now more than ever before need to increase their distribution channels in order to reach more customers.

“We continue to invest significantly in our front office sales tools to ensure travel agents have seamless access to the best content in a fast, easy-to-use hotel booking platform.

“Amadeus Hotels Plus enables agents to compare hotel aggregator and GDS rates side-by-side in a single display that automatically passes across to the back office system, saving time and money.”

She added: “Totalstay’s discounted hotel rates cater to every budget and provide a fantastic choice, which means our customers will have even more ways to deliver a door-to-door trip planning and booking experience to consumers.

“Totalstay also enables agents to capture last minute bookings made on the day of arrival, offering even more ways to grow revenues.”
