WHY IT RATES: Traveltek partnering with Booking.com will provide its users with access to more options—Eric Bowman, TravelPulse Senior Editor
The Traveltek Group has bolstered the diversity and breadth of choice on its industry-leading booking platform via a new partnership with Booking.com, the global leader in connecting travelers with the widest choice of incredible places to stay. Users of Traveltek’s award-winning platform can now access and book accommodation from Booking.com’s extensive portfolio.
With over 28 million total reported listings on the site, Booking.com boasts more accommodation options than any other digital platform. The variety of accommodation available on the site is the most diverse on the market, offering everything from hotels, apartments and holiday homes to villas, tree houses and even igloos.
Traveltek COO, Kirsty Orr, commented on the union: “Bringing Booking.com onto our supplier list is a major addition to our platform and will have a significant, positive impact for our growing client base.
“We share a similar mission, which is to be the best in our respective fields at what we do so it’s a great fit for us both.
