Users of business social network LinkedIn are being given the opportunity to book special rates at hotels through a login link to hotel.info.
The new feature allows users to access exclusive corporate rates. A ‘no cancellation fee’ policy means business travellers have increased flexibility, the accommodation site claims.
Integration of LinkedIn to the hotel.info booking process means business users can create a comprehensive profile thanks to their LinkedIn data.
The new login function is available in English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.
Hotel.info says ‘high level’ data protection is assured through a secure interface between the two portals.
Board member responsible for marketing, product and IT Ralf Ahamer said: “The ability to login through a LinkedIn profile does not just save valuable time for our business customers, they also have direct access to our corporate rates and thereby save money too.“
