Palma, Spain 4 December 2019 – Hotelbeds, the world’s leading bedbank, has today announced a strategic partnership with the all new easyJet holidays. 

Hotelbeds has signed a strategic five year accommodation supplier agreement with easyJet holidays who will feature handpicked hotels from the Hotelbeds platform on its website along with directly contracted hotels for customers to choose from.

The Hotelbeds platform provides access to more than 180,000 unique hotel properties around the world, many of which are contracted under exclusive terms and conditions by a team of over 1,100 contracting professionals located in the most popular leisure destinations around the world.

Carlos Muñoz, Managing Director, Hotelbeds, said, “As the strategic bedbank partner of easyJet holidays, we look forward to watching it grow into one of Europe’s biggest holiday companies.

“All of us at Hotelbeds are immensely proud of the work we have done in helping easyJet holidays reach this point and we’re delighted to be able to continue working with them. This has demonstrated that Hotelbeds has the experience, technology and hotelier relationships available to help airlines implement and grow their tour operating volumes. This is already our fastest growing area, with over 40 partners globally.” 

Garry Wilson, CEO, easyJet holidays, commented, “We have just launched our new easyJet holidays business bringing it in-house and selling directly to customers for the first time. It’s great to be able to continue our relationship with Hotelbeds working with them as a strategic bedbank partner. We’ve handpicked a portion of their properties to feature alongside a selection of our directly contracted hotels to give our customers some of the best hotels in Europe for their beach and city holidays. We look forward to growing and scaling our business working alongside Hotelbeds and complementing our in-house team.”

This deal adds to the over 40 airlines that currently partner with Hotelbeds, including the recently announced partnerships with Singapore Airlines and Luxair. The partnership with easyJet holidays reinforces the Hotelbeds position as an ideal strategic partner for airlines to fulfil their non-air ancillary revenues strategy.

In recent years Hotelbeds has grown the number of properties available to over 180,000 as part of a renewed focus on providing hotel partners with incremental and high-value bookings via its network of over 60,000 B2B travel trade buyers – including tour operators, retail travel agents, airline websites and loyalty and reward points schemes.
