ALTOUR will be offering corporate travel clients increased global access to hotel inventory and discounted rates.
HRS, the world’s leading provider of end-to- end solutions for corporate hotel programmes, announced the signing of an agreement with ALTOUR.
ALTOUR, the largest independently owned travel management company (TMC) in the United States, recorded sales of $2.6 billion in 2016. The agreement enables ALTOUR’s global corporate clients access to HRS inventory worldwide. HRS today has more than 350,000 hotels in its portfolio, including 210,000+ independent properties.
That access includes the opportunity to book rooms at hotels that don’t participate in traditional booking channels, at rates exclusively negotiated for HRS business clients.
“HRS’ inventory spans 190 countries, adding quality independent hotel options for our clients in a broad range of city centres,” said Barry Noskeau, executive vice president and chief operating officer for ALTOUR. “As more of our corporate clients expand to different corners of the globe, it’s vital that we continue providing business-grade hotels to their travellers.” HRS complements ALTOUR’s hotel solutions that include the AHC Luxury Amenity Program, the ALT Boutique Rate and Amenity Program, the ENT ALTOUR’s Entertainment Hotel Program and the Radius global hotel programme.
“ALTOUR’s array of corporate clients in different vertical markets make them an ideal first partner for this new, deeper level of TMC engagement for HRS,” said Jason Long, vice president of partnerships for HRS. “In particular, ALTOUR’s growing roster of multi-national clients and our inventory of quality hotel options in Brazil, China, India and other business destinations puts this partnership on a trajectory for mutual success from the start.”
