KLM flies hotel.info: Royal Dutch Airlines chooses the online hotel reservation service's corporate application
Nuremberg, 25 August 2010 - hotel.info, the free online hotel reservation service for more than 210,000 hotels worldwide, has acquired a very special corporate customer. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, founded in 1919 and thus one of the world's oldest airlines, is now taking advantage of hotel.info's corporate access.
The corporate application allows travel management departments to set up travel policies and integrate corporate sites so that they can be selected directly on the application homepage. In addition, the corporate customers can also access special negotiated rates which have been agreed by contract with designated hotels as well as hotel.info's own corporate discounts, which the online hotel reservations specialist has acquired thanks to its high booking volumes. Customers booking through the corporate application naturally also benefit from the renowned hotel.info Best Price Guarantee.
Warini Munshi, Managing Director at hotel.info is also extremely happy with the acquisition of the new "royal" customer: "In KLM we can welcome to our fold an airline with over 90 years' experience in the business. The fact that a company that has been around on the market for such a long time has decided to rely on our expertise speaks volumes for our service. We are looking forward to this cooperation greatly, and naturally also anticipate continued positive impact on our booking volumes."
