KDS strikes Booking.com deal

Travel and expense management firm KDS has announced a partnership with Booking.com for Business, that will see more than 1 million properties available to travellers on its platform.

The deal means users can search and book accommodation from Booking.com’s itinerary in KDS Neo.

Through the tool, users can search availability, view all rates including special offers and value deals and see detailed property and room descriptions and photos. They can also view hotels and other accommodations close to their destination or meeting on a map.

Oliver Quayle, SVP product, partners and marketing at KDS, said: “We’ve already seen significant uplift in hotel attachment rate using the door-to-door approach of Neo, where the hotel, flights and taxi transfers are all booked in one go as part of the itinerary.

“As travellers discover they have access to more accommodation options in a consumer format, we expect this increase to continue as they discover the tool is able to offer the broadest set of accommodation options without need for further research elsewhere.”
