The hotel platform of eDreams Odigeo celebrates its first year as one of the largest in the world, after the integration of budgetplaces.com, which has allowed it to increase its bookings by up to 50% in the last, with an increase in the average stay over 36% reserve
The platform, which was launched on October 1, 2017, allows associated hosting providers to offer their properties to travelers from all over the world who want to book flight packages plus hotel through one of the four brands of eDreams Odigeo: eDreams , GO Voyages, Opodo and Travellink.
Through eDreams Odigeo Connect, partner businesses have access to information on trends and behavior habits collected by eDreams Odigeo among the more than 18.5 million customers served in 43 different markets around the world. This allows them to adapt their offer dynamically.
According to the company’s data, users of the platform book their flights more than 45 days in advance for an average of six days of travel, which allows hoteliers to benefit from longer stays and a reservation window more espacious. In addition, this collaboration guarantees a lower cancellation fee, since travelers who have booked the flight and accommodation together are usually less likely to cancel.
After its first year of operation, data from eDreams Odigeo Connect shows that independent properties that have joined the platform have seen their visibility and transactions grow by more than 50%.
