ACCORHOTELS ADDS NEW FEATURE TO ONLINE LEISURE GROUP BOOKING SOLUTION FOR TRAVEL PROS

The AccorHotels online leisure group booking solution now includes a new feature which enables tourism professionals (travel agencies, tour operators, coach holiday operators, etc.) to book half-board packages.

This new feature will be available from December on the accorhotels.com portal in the “Professional Solutions” tab, under the “Tourism / Group bookings” section. It further simplifies leisure group booking procedures for 15 to 60 people (from 8 to 30 rooms), making it easier for travel professionals to book a cheaper service that includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner.

The portal already allows them to:

  • Check single, double and twin rooms availability in real-time and make provisional bookings;
  • Access the best available rate.

“Just two and a half years on, our solution for leisure group bookings has been a great success, with an average of over 4,000 leisure group bookings per year. This new offer further enriches this solution, which is unique in the hospitality industry and has already provided an effective response to strong market demand for a simple, time-saving solution” says Jean-Claude Balanos, AccorHotels VP Leisure Sales.

To date, the AccorHotels online leisure group booking has already been rolled out in 1,000 hotels in over 300 destinations worldwide, across all market segments from economy to luxury.
