EasyJet, the UK’s largest airline, has today announced a new partnership with LateRooms.com, one of the UK’s leading online hotel providers. The new partnership will see LateRooms become the principal accommodation provider for easyJet customers.
LateRooms.com will provide easyJet’s 44 million annual customers with a huge range of accommodation options across Europe and beyond from luxury 5* hotels to cosy B&Bs to country house hotels; spas resorts and boutique town houses.
The partnership will allow easyJet customers to benefit from LateRooms’ extensive range of accommodation deals in all of easyJet’s key destinations via a bespoke co-branded microsite, built by LateRooms. The microsite will be multilingual, enabling customers to book accommodation in English, Spanish, French, German or Italian.
A dedicated call centre will also be available to easyJet customers, with LateRooms assisting in both online and offline bookings.
Bill McKimm, head of ancillary revenue at easyJet.com, commented: “LateRooms is a perfect partner for easyJet, they were chosen on account of the brand’s exceptional value proposition and ability to offer customers a great breadth of choice.
“By combining two popular and trusted travel services our customers can enjoy the convenience of booking both flights and accommodation in one place. LateRooms compliments easyJet.com as a simple, quick and easy to use website with a huge choice when it comes to flights and accommodation in all of our destinations.”
Jenny Oakley, commercial director at LateRooms, added: “By integrating LateRooms’ extensive range of great value European accommodation within easyJet, customers will be able to book a low cost flight and find the perfect place to stay at great value whether it’s for business or for pleasure.”
Hotelopia (a sister company of LateRooms.com) will continue to service the easyJet partnership via easyJetholidays.com and dynamic packaging while LateRooms will provide the customer with the flexibility to book a hotel room after they have booked a flight.
