travel agents, airlines, and loyalty schemes in over 140 source markets
worldwide. These channels provide hotel partners with returning guests
that book further in advance, cancel less, spend more in-destination and
stay longer.

In addition to accommodation, Hotelbeds is also the world’s largest B2B
seller of travel ancillaries, offering 24,000 transfer routes and 18,000
activities, as well as attractions, tickets and car hire. Operating

high-margin products.
