PALMA - Hotelbeds, the world’s leading bedbank, has announced a preferred partnership agreement with Cloudbeds, an easy to use all-in-one hospitality management suite that simplifies the working lives of hoteliers and hosts.
With this agreement Cloudbeds aims to increase its connectivity partnership program by helping its 22,000 hotel, hostel and vacation rental partners reach the over 60,000 B2B travel partners – including tour operators, travel agencies, airlines and points schemes in over 185 source markets – that use the Hotelbeds booking platform.
Additionally, the accommodation provider partners of Cloudbeds will benefit from the high-value guests that Hotelbeds’ B2B travel buyers typically offer, including guests that book earlier, pay more, cancel less, stay for longer and spend twice as much in the destination.
Cloudbeds creates cloud-based hospitality management software that simplifies the working lives of professional property owners and operators. The company has offices in San Diego, Dublin, and Sao Paulo Brazil and its employees are distributed in 31 different countries.
Through its powerful and simple suite of tools, Cloudbeds gives all properties, regardless of size, access to the best hospitality management technology. This means hoteliers and hosts can grow reservations and automate their workflows with confidence and ease.
Adam Krzciuk Kuna, Head of Supplier Connectivity Partnerships at Hotelbeds said: “We are really happy to partner with Cloudbeds to boost our distribution network and feel that their hotel partners will benefit immensely from gaining access to our over 60,000 B2B travel buyers.
“We are starting a new era in relationships with channel managers and we want to recognize their great importance to our business; that’s why we recently launched a new preferred partnership program for channel managers and we/re very excited with Cloudbeds being one of the first participants.”
Sebastien Leitner, Director of Global Partnerships at Cloudbeds added: “Our partnership with Hotelbeds is an exciting milestone for us and we’re very proud to be partnering with a leading business-to-business bedbank worldwide. We look forward to helping our hotels to increase their sales and boost profitability through offering them access to the hard-to-reach B2B buyers Hotelbeds offers, such as retail travel agents, tour operators, loyalty schemes and airline websites.”
