PALMA, Spain, 4 March 2022: Hotelbeds has signed a preferred
partner deal with IHG Hotels & Resorts to distribute wholesale rates for
IHG hotels in Europe and Greater China.
Hotelbeds’ network reaches thousands of B2B travel buyers,
such as offline tour operators, retail travel agents, airlines and company
employee loyalty programmes, across more than 140 source markets worldwide.
Hotelbeds Chief Commercial Officer Carlos Muñoz commented: “Thanks to this collaboration, our client partners worldwide will have access to a leading product portfolio which is fantastic news coming off the back of some very challenging years.”
IHG Hotels & Resorts has 17 brands, including
InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts and
Holiday Inn Express and last year joined Hotelbeds’ Green Hotel Programme to
further strengthen its commitment to sustainable tourism.
The Green Hotels Programme is a turn-key solution to bring
Hotelbeds and its partners into the green economy and accelerate the transition
of the travel industry towards sustainability – a topic whose importance has
increased dramatically in light of the Covid pandemic.
