Travel loyalty club Wanup is making a selection of Travelport’s 650,000 bookable hotels available to members to complement its own collection, based on rating, destination and style.
Barcelona-based Wanup was established last year offering immediate rewards from a diverse collection of hotels, allowing travellers to enjoy perks without feeling compelled to stay with one hotel chain.
When booking a hotel, members earn rewards in the form of travel cash, along with travel benefits and digital media subscriptions to enhance their hotel experience.
The multi-year agreement sees Travelport as its preferred travel commerce platform, giving access to global travel provider content.
This aggregates the most comprehensive content from multiple sources, including independent properties.
It allows Wanup members to benefit from intelligent, fast and accurate search beyond just rate and availability.
Global partnership director Carlo Alvarez Spagnolo said: “We look forward to this new opportunity for our company, as this relationship makes it possible to accelerate international expansion, while we continue to enhance our value proposition for partner hotels and consumers.
“We chose Travelport because they can support our aspirational growth with its rich, global hotel content and flexible uAPI technology.”
Travelport global hospitality and digital vice president and managing director Niklas Andreen added: “Working with Wanup, an innovative loyalty club solution and hotel industry innovator, shows the flexibility of our platform to accommodate needs of any travel company’s business model.
“We are pleased that our large inventory gives an opportunity to improve its performance by scaling its business and increasing the revenue.”
