Which Expedia Affiliate Program is Best

Expedia Affiliate Network and Amadeus bring greater hotel choice and reward to travel sellers worldwide

Madrid, December 5, 2017 - Amadeus and the Expedia Affiliate Network have signed an agreement that will significantly expand the choice of hotel deals for travel agents: Travel sellers around the world will be able to book the Expedia Affiliate Network rates through Amadeus, including full-service hotel brands, boutique hotels and serviced Apartments. This enables even more individualized offers for customers.

When travel sellers book the Expedia Affiliate Network offer through Amadeus Hotels, they benefit from fully automated processes, which saves time and money: from the search to the booking to the invoicing, the data is automatically transferred.

Further advantages for travel sellers:

  • Uniform travel plans with all the details. Each booking generates a booking process (PNR = Passenger Name Record). This makes it easier for travel sellers to consolidate all hotel bookings plus flights, rental cars and other related travel services of a customer in one travel plan. In this way, corporate customers can, for example, easily trace the routes of their business travelers and ensure their safety.
  • The choice of payment options means more flexibility. Amadeus offers travel sellers various payment options, for example advance payments, subsequent payments via agency or traveler credit cards, credit lines, bank transfers and vouchers. This gives travel sellers more flexibility in booking rates from the Expedia Affiliate Network and ensures that the hotel is paid for quickly.
  • Fully automated processes from search to reporting: With Amadeus' fully integrated technology, travel sellers booking the Expedia Affiliate Network rates will only need to enter booking details once. The information goes straight to the accounting department and the invoice is immediately issued to the customer, which makes it easier to reconcile commissions and ensures quick payments. Through this fully automated process, every booking is tracked and analyzed so that travel sellers can achieve maximum compensation.

"Amadeus-affiliated travel sellers are now able to offer their travelers competitive rates and availability on more than 350,000 hotels around the world," said Alfonso Paredes, Vice President of Sales, EMEA and LATAM, Expedia Affiliate Network. Amadeus is a proven technology partner for the travel industry. We're excited to be working together to provide state-of-the-art technology and world-class support so that Amadeus can offer more choice to all travelers. "

"Today's travelers expect more customized offers from travel sellers to deliver unique travel experiences," said Peter Waters, Director of Hotel Distribution at Amadeus. “It is therefore very important for our customers to be able to use as much booking content as possible and reliable systems for searching and booking. Amadeus works continuously to deliver the best results for both requirements. That we are working in new and innovative ways with market leaders like the Expedia Affiliate Network is the best proof of this. "
