Norwegian has forged a global partnership with Expedia Affiliate Network to offer special hotel rates as it gears up to add 10 new US routes from the UK and Ireland this summer.
Almost 300,000 hotels and more than 100 million user reviews to the low cost carrier’s flight offering with EAN’s ‘Hotels.com for Partners’ platform.
The retail platform gives passengers access to hotels and discounted package rates when booking a flight and a hotel together on a new co-branded website with Hotels.com.
EAN will provide online accommodation suggestions in Norwegian’s flight booking confirmation emails. Users will also have the choice of paying for their hotel at the time of booking or on arrival.
Five million global members of Norwegian’s loyalty programme, Norwegian Reward, can also now earn Cashpoints when booking hotels, which can be used as full or partial payment for Norwegian flights.
Norwegian Reward members can choose from hundreds of thousands of hotels and earn 5% CashPoints on each booking.
The airline’s sales senior vice president, Lars Sande, said: “Customers now have easy access to a wide range of high quality hotels at competitive rates and Norwegian Reward members can also earn CashPoints that saves them money when flying with us in the future.
“By combining Norwegian flights with accommodation booked through Hotels.com it’s now more affordable than ever to book a holiday with Norwegian.”
EAN vice president EMEA and Latin America, Alfonso Paredes, added: “We have worked closely to deliver a product which allows Norwegian to keep the customer top of mind and gives the airline’s customers quality, choice, discounted rates and the ability to earn loyalty points.
“EAN’s dedicated team of experts will continue to work closely with Norwegian to ensure they are able to offer their customers the best hotel booking experience.”
