One of the key growth drivers in achieving this ambitious target will be the expansion of the existing product portfolio to include additional tours, transfers and activities. Additionally the company will continue to focus on providing its partners with best-in-class technology solutions to make the upselling of ancillaries even simpler and quicker. Together these two drivers will have the benefit of attracting further intermediaries to the platform, allowing for further additional growth in sales.
Hotelbeds Group’s Transfer and Activity Bank (TAB) is the world’s leading online distributor of transfers, tours and activities. It provides both the industry and the end consumer with a consolidated range of in-destination products worldwide. The company currently offers over 19,000 transfer routes and over 12,000 activity options in more than 650 destinations. These activities include theatre, sport and theme park tickets, excursions and car rental products. Amongst its many partners are included Disney Parks, Legoland, and Open Camp, the first park in the world dedicated to the universe of sport.
Utilising advanced technology platforms including XML API, white label and online widget solutions, TAB’s products are distributed to more than 35,000 travel intermediaries globally in 120 source markets via the Hotelbeds Group distribution platform, as well as through the Group’s own brands, including Hotelextras, Isango, Guidego and Let’s Shuttle.
Speaking at World Travel Market 2016, the leading global event for the travel industry taking place in London between 7-9 November, Javier Arévalo, TAB’s Managing Director, commented that, several years ago they have identified the opportunity for intermediaries to increase revenues via the online upselling of ancillary services such as tours, transfers and activities. They have pioneered the online distribution market ever since and customer feedback has been superb. Now they plan to take this to another level by expanding the product range further and developing their technology to provide their customers with the best possible solutions – creating a virtuous circle that will in turn attract more intermediaries to the platform and increase sales further still.
