Trip Affiliates Network adds Google Hotels integration to their B2B travel and hospitality ecosystem.
Google Hotels is a new initiative from Google that improves the traveler’s booking experience and helps hotel accommodations increase visibility by prominently listing their presence in the world’s leading online search engines.
In addition, Google’s functionality offers travelers the ability to book directly, bypassing Online Travel Agencies (OTAs). This allows hotels to capture more direct bookings through their website.
TA Network is a premium provider of distribution, turnkey solutions and connectivity that brings together the leading travel wholesalers, operators and destination management companies in Asia-Pacific into one open, cloud-based ecosystem
