hotel.de launches corporate hotel booking site for small- and mid-sized entities - www.hotel.de/business
Nürnberg, 19. January, 2005 - hotel.de, one of Germany's leading online hotel reservation services with 150.000 hotels worldwide, has launched its new corporate hotel booking application.
www.hotel.de/business addresses small- and mid-sized enterprises that will benefit from considerable price advantages and thus reduce their travel expenses this way. Whereas online bookers - compared to booking the hotel directly - already save 30% on average via its public site, with www.hotel.de/business hotel.de now offers its corporate customers another 10% cost saving potential by posting corporate discount rates specifically acquired for this purpose. So all together via using this service, enterprises economize approximately 40% of their hotel expenses.
Next to such corporate discount rates www.hotel.de/business also displays all other available rates (such as promotion- and best price-rates) of the hotel in question in order for the customer to be able to always select the lowest available room price. Access to hotel.de's corporate product is given either by integration into one's intranet or by a password-protected online account.
Bookings will be transferred simultaneously, safely and directly into the relevant hotel computer. Normally there is a free-of-charge right of cancellation until the arrival day.
hotel.de is a leading online hotel reservation service. Via hotel.de its customers can book about 150,000 hotels and hotel packages worldwide at discount room rates. Hotels benefit from hotel.de as an additional high coverage sales channel distributing their offers and specials to the right target groups. hotel.de is the only hotel reservation service to unite all major central hotel booking engines (such as Pegasus, WorldRes, Trust, HRN) as well as its own reservation system ARS (Advanced Reservation System) under one user interface. The specific advantage is that all room contingents and rates of these systems will be checked for real-time availability and accuracy. The best rate of an individual hotel will be displayed for all customers to book the lowest rate available in nearly all locations and at any time. The numerous hotel package offers designed especially for hotel.de customers are also unique in character. hotel.de is operated by the German company hotel.de AG and has offices in both Hamm and Nuremberg.
