Expedia Affiliate Network (EAN) has joined forces with Polish travel technology solutions provider Anixe to allow central and eastern European travel providers to access EAN’s full suite of hotel rates and availabilities.
Under the agreement, Anixe will have access to more than 350,000 hotels worldwide, according to EAN. Through Anixe’s offline data exporting and distribution capabilities under its Resfinity brand, EAN’s hotel rate information will be accessible in a variety of industry standard formats.
EAN says the partnership will deepen Anixe’s hotel inventory offering, particularly in central and eastern Europe, where travel providers have previously been unable to access EAN’s rates and availability due to differences in data management methods.
Alfonso Paredes, VP of sales for EMEA and LATAM at EAN, commented: “Anixe’s technology has allowed us to reach more travel partners in the tour operator, airline and flight ticket retailer sectors, particularly in central and eastern Europe, where there is specific demand for EAN’s extensive accommodation portfolio and competitive rates and availability.”
Piotr Zolnierek, CEO of Anixe, added: “A key factor in our decision to work with EAN was the ability to offer our partners access to its package rates and vitally, more available hotel rooms in more countries across the globe.”
