HotelTonight, the leading mobile app for last-minute hotel bookings, today announced a new partnership with travel technology leader eRevMax, which assists hotels to maximise online revenue opportunities through real-time distribution, market intelligence and connectivity solutions.
Today’s new partnership gives the 9,000 hotels currently using eRevMax’s industry leading RateTiger channel manager the ability to seamlessly send inventory directly to HotelTonight as a new distribution channel. HotelTonight is focused on selling hotel inventory up until the last minute, generating revenue for hotels from rooms that otherwise might not be sold. For HotelTonight, this partnership gives its customers access to inventory from eRevMax hotel partners globally, including large hotel chains, mid-market segment and boutique hotels.
“We are excited to connect our customers to RateTiger’s outstanding hotels while offering them a powerful new distribution channel — one that has an engaged consumer audience looking for great hotels, right up until the last minute,” said Amir Segall, HotelTonight VP of International. “HotelTonight wants to help all partner hotels reach maximum occupancy on any given night.”
Ashis Saha, SVP, Project Management at eRevMax comments, “We’re thrilled to connect to the industry’s leading last-minute booking app, providing our partner hotels a seamless way to move last-minute inventory. The key to success here is our ability to deliver reservations immediately so the hotel front desk has the booking details ready when the guest checks in, which could be any time
after they book a room via the HotelTonight app.”
As the entire travel space moves increasingly mobile and last minute – more than two-thirds of U.S. domestic hotel bookings and half of E.U. hotel bookings are within one week of arrival.*
HotelTonight has established itself as the leading last-minute booking app. With an average of one-third of hotel rooms unoccupied on any given day, HotelTonight enables its hotel partners to move last minute inventory while bringing incremental revenue and a new audience: 76% of HotelTonight users are first-time customers of the hotel.
