Gohop.com to take Placestostay inventory

Placestostay.com has teamed up with one of Ireland’s leading travel websites, Gohop.com, to include its database of accommodation in the portal’s portfolio of deals.

Around 25,000 hotel properties will be included in Gohop.com’s website, which has around 850,000 package holiday options on its books and includes other services such as flights, car hire and other hotels.

The deal extends Placestostay.com owner FEXCO AllTravel’s reach into Ireland. The group also owns Gulliver Ireland and TeeTimes.ie.

Steve McKenna, commercial director of Travel Management Solutions (Gohop.com), said: “You can never stand still if you want to stay ahead in the online sales game. At Gohop.com, we constantly look for new ways to add value for online customers, and that often means content.

“Our deal with Placestostay enhances Gohop’s offer, which is important in the Irish market where travel services are the most frequent online purchase.”

Gohop.com has been seen one of the pioneers of online travel in Ireland and generates an estimated 250,000 Euros a week in revenue.

Tim Wright, head of business development distribution for FexCo AllTravel, said: “As well as adding rich, informative content for users, Gohop.com is investing in inventory expansion, and the integration of Placestostay’s extensive range of hotels is good news for Gohop.com customers.

“They get more choice and value options, while Gohop.com has more revenue opportunity and builds its reputation further.”
