Amadeus’ longest standing hotel provider AccorHotels has renewed its distribution deal with the GDS for a further three years.
This ensures that the group’s full inventory, including Ibis budget accommodation, is made available to Amadeus-connected travel agencies
Amadeus currently distributes 150 Ibis budget properties, with more soon to become available.
The company’s hotel distribution director Peter Waters said: “The industry is dramatically changing due to the growth of large online players, so hoteliers now more than ever need to retain ownership over their distribution strategy.
“In response to this, we have seen an increase in demand from hoteliers to distribute their hotel inventory through the GDS channel.
“We are delighted to renew the distribution agreement with AccorHotels and look forward to supporting them meet the needs of both business and leisure travellers.”
