Gurgaon-based travel management company InterGlobe Air Transport said it has entered the hotel booking space in India under a tie-up with Spain-based bedsonline.com.
“Through this alliance, we will be venturing into a new category of hotel bookings, diversifying our business while expanding our touchpoints across consumers’ travel journeys, with services including air travel, car rental and now hotel bookings,” the company said.
InterGlobe, which already offers airline ticketing and car rentals, will use Bedsonline as its back-end provider.
Based in Spain, Bedsonline has tie-ups with 1.8 lakh hotels across the world in 185 countries, and typically offers its services to institutional sellers of hotel bookings, such as travel agents.
“This agreement represents a great opportunity for our clients in India and we are very excited to enter this partnership with InterGlobe Air Transport,” Bedsonline said.
InterGlobe will act as the ‘general sales agent’ for bedsonline in India. Indian travel agencies already working with Bedsonline will continue to book all their accommodation, activities, transfers, and car-hire on the Spanish company’s website, it added.
