London, 27 August 2009 - www.hotel.info, the free online hotel reservations service, has announced a new cooperation to start immediately with Sixt, a leading international car-rental company.
The deal means that hotel.info customers will have the option of booking a Sixt rental car once they have completed their hotel reservation. The cooperation between the hotel arranger and rental specialist represents a win-win situation for booking customers, since rentals booked through hotel.info will attract more favourable conditions. In addition, Sixt will offer tailored deals that are only available to hotel.info’s customers.
As a quid pro quo, Sixt will provide hotel.info with advertising space in its online newsletter and in its "GoSixt" customer magazine. In this way, Sixt’s customers will learn how they can use hotel.info to book cheap rates at over 210,000 hotels worldwide. In addition, the car-rental company will introduce hotel.info on its own affiliate pages. A link will be provided to guide users to www.hotel.info giving them direct access to the entire global range of hotels.
Both partners will thus benefit from the intersection of their respective customer groups. Anyone who can use the comfortable online hotel reservation service will also be able to use the uncomplicated online car-rental functions. At the same time, users of rental cars often require accommodation once they reach their destination.
"Accommodation and mobility normally go hand in hand for most travellers. For that reason alone, this is a logical step to enhancing our offering. We are looking forward to experiencing positive synergistic effects!" explained Warini Munshi, Managing Director at hotel.info hotel booking Ltd.
