A new distribution partnership has been agreed between travel wholesaler Tourico Holidays and Tui Germany. Under this agreement, Tui German unit will have access to Tourico’s inventory of worldwide hotels via XML connectivity.
The German group of companies includes the core Tui brand, along with 1-2-FLY, airtours and L’tur, Tui fly, and specialist companies such as Gebeco and Berge & Meer. This development aligns Tourico Holidays with other bedbank businesses within owner, the Hotelbeds Group, which already enjoyed a long-standing partnership with Tui Germany.
Tourico has more than 80,000 hotels contracted across the globe and offers clients “ExclusiveDeals” or pre-purchased hotel room blocks that guarantee guests discounted rates. The firm pioneered the industry practice of pre-buying large hotel room blocks over 20 years ago and Tui’s XML connectivity will ensure the distributor has the most up-to-date inventory available for last-minute sales.
