Amadeus signs pre-paid hotel content deal with Agoda

Travel tech company Amadeus has partnered with OTA Agoda to give travel agents access to pre-paid hotel content from 150,000 properties globally.

Agents all over the world will now be able to view Agoda’s content – available at the same price as the OTA’s website – and compare it to other content through a single screen, and book the content in one PNR with other content.

The two companies hope this deal will help prevent corporate out-of-policy travel bookings.

Christian Lukey, head of hotels, mobility and insurance at Amadeus across the Asia Pacific said: “This is our first partnership with a B2C company in Asia, and an important one because it will enable travel agents to offer a competitive and seamless service, while reducing costs and increasing efficiency.

“We are privileged to be the first company to globally distribute Agoda’s diverse selection of hotels to agents and travelers.”

Ernst Hemmer, senior director at Agoda, said: “This partnership with Amadeus gives Agoda access to the global travel agent market and specifically the business travel sector, which is forecast to grow 5.8 per cent annually to reach $1.6 trillion in 2020.

“Agoda customers enjoy access to a huge variety of hotels, apartments or villas for their holidays and leisure use, and through this partnership will now also be able to access these properties for business travel too.

“We look forward to working closely with Amadeus in the future and building on this partnership to offer more benefits to travel agents and their customers.”
