Travelport is offering greater revenue opportunities for hoteliers through a new agreement with Nor1.
The strategic partnership will allow hotels using Nor1’s upsell technologies including eStandby Upgrade to reach more customers through the Worldspan and Galileo GDSs.
eStandby Upgrade offers will be available via itinerary emails and Travelport ViewTrip, Travelport’s online itinerary tool offered free of charge to Travelport partner agencies.
Participating properties confirm the pay-for-upgrade requests guests make at check-in and are able to instantly boost their bottom line revenue on top of their existing reservations.
Niklas Andreen, GVP Hospitality and Partner Marketing for Travelport, said: “Nor1 provides a true benefit to every audience we reach – our agents, hotels, even the end-user by offering the right offer to the right guest at the right time.
“This partnership is very much aligned with our global drive to boost revenues for hotel customers and provide additional value to our travel agents clients.”
Jason Bryant, president and chief operating officer of Nor1, added: “By partnering with Travelport, we are enabling more guests to take advantage of eStandby Upgrade to enhance their stay with leading properties around the globe. Our solution also benefits the properties as they earn more revenue from every reservation.”
