TravelRes is the international brand of hotel.de AG. This brand name was reserved in 2006 to help push ahead its expansion into other European countries. In this context the company has also reserved all other relevant country domains.
To support customer and hotel acquisition hotel.de has already set up offices in London and Paris, which will be followed by other important countries.
The strong customer loyalty and the high ratio of business customers facilitate hotel.de´s entry into new markets as many foreign-based subsidiaries or parent enterprises of German companies contracted by hotel.de, have already been using TravelRes since its inception. This clientele are the first potential customers. The aim is to establish TravelRes as the leading online hotel reservation service for business customers in the aforementioned foreign markets and – step by step – in Europe as a whole.
hotel.de AG, based in Hamm und Nürnberg(Germany), in London (UK) and Paris (France) runs a free of charge hotel reservation service for companies and private users on www.hotel.de, TravelRes.com, hotel.at and www.hotel.ch. hotel.de AG offers 180.000 hotels throughout the world to be booked online. In 2007 hotel.de has extended its business model by the strongly growing business segment of conference hotel bookings through corporate customers. Compared to other booking channels, hotel.de customers benefit from considerable cost savings. These partially result from the very low hotel rates which hotel.de is able to negotiate with hotels thanks to its high booking volume. Additionally, hotel.de always displays all rates available for every single hotel (e.g. promotional rates, corporate or weekend rates), so that the customer can choose the lowest or best-fitting rate. Another major advantage of hotel.de is the fact that booking confirmations are sent right into the hotel’s computer - making a reservation fast, safe and reliable. This is enabled by hotel.de's unique integration of the hotels' central reservation systems (so-called CRS) under one consistent user surface. Well-known companies, such as Wella AG (subsidiary of Procter & Gamble), SAP AG, ThyssenKrupp AG, degussa AG, Logica CMG GmbH, Ernst & Young AG, Wal-Mart, Texas Instruments Inc., Deutsche Börse Group, Munich Re Group and others already use the hotel.de corporate application.
