Accor renews Travelport distribution deal

A total of 67,000 travel agents connected to Travelport will maintain access to French hotel giant Accor’s availability and room rates through a renewed distribution deal.

Accor also plans to take advantage of increased functionality from the technology provider’s point of sale solutions, by providing rich static content directly into Travelport’s Hotel Content Plus database.

The chain of more than 3,700 hotels will also make use of alternate payment solutions such as the ability to facilitate single-use credit card payments and pre-pay reservations, even when pre-payment is not a condition of the booking.

Simon Ferguson, managing director of Travelport UK, Ireland and Nordics, said: “We’re thrilled to extend our association with Accor, one of the leading hotel groups in the world.

“Accor has demonstrated over the years its willingness to embrace new technology and innovation and our partnership over the years is testament to that.

“We are particularly pleased that Accor has recognised the increased opportunities our Travel Commerce Platform can help deliver and we look forward to working even closer together in future years.
