As Tnooz reports, Room Key has added about 70,000 hotels on a white-label basis from the Travelocity Partner Network. John Davis, Room Key CEO, says the company knew it had to augment the offerings from these brands to provide more choice and bring in more properties from outside the US.
One way Room Key is expanding its base of hotels is with previously announced agreements with Trust International, Sabre Hospitality and TravelClick, but these pacts have not been implemented yet.
The Travelocity agreement will fill the gap and the number of properties provided on a white label basis will be tweaked once the three CRS providers - Trust, Sabre and TravelClick - go live, Davis says.
Davis adds that Room Key made the business decision to add hotels “sooner rather than later because we need to satisfy the needs of consumers.”
