Late this summer we announced a partnership with Adventure Inc., the Japanese online travel business in Japan and owner of Skyticket, which in addition to accommodation sells tickets for 17 domestic and over 500 international airlines.
The agreement with Hotelbeds is Adventure’s first partnership with a global business-to-business accommodation wholesaler partner and gives our hotel partners further access to one of the world’s most important outbound travel source markets.
Commenting on the news, Hui-Wan Chua, APAC Regional Director for Wholesale Sales at Hotelbeds, said, “Japan is an exceptionally important outbound source market in the wholesale channel for Hotelbeds in APAC and therefore this is excellent news for our hotel partners globally, all of whom place high value on bookings from Japanese guests.”
Whilst Shunichi Nakamura, CEO at Adventure, commented, “We are absolutely thrilled to be entering into a partnership with Hotelbeds and were attracted by the high-quality and directly source inventory on offer, often at exclusive prices. Our success in the market has been driven by gaining loyalty customers, with a 60% repeat booking rate, and it is important to be able to offer them the best products and service.”
