Travelport has signed a new deal with Nor1, the hotel technology provider.
Under the agreement, hotels using Nor1’s up-selling solutions, such as its signature eStandby Upgrade, will be able to reach more guests through Travelport’s Worldspan and Gallileo global distribution systems (GDS).
eStandby Upgrade will now be available via itinerary emails and Travelport ViewTrip, Travelport’s itinerary tool for travellers, which is available free of charge to Travelport-connected agencies. Participating properties confirm the upgrade requests guests make at check-in, adding more opportunities for extra revenue streams.
“By Partnering with Travelport, we are enabling more guests to take advantage of eStandby Upgrade to enhance their stay with leading properties around the globe. Our solution also benefits the properties as they earn more revenue from every reservation,” said Jason Bryant, president & COO of Nor1. “We share Travelport’s vision of delivering industry-leading solutions to the hospitality industry. Together we are able to drive the industry forward through innovation that boosts earnings and overall guest satisfaction.”
“Nor1 provides a true benefit to every audience we reach – our agents, hotels, even the end-user by offering the right offer to the right guest at the right time,” said Niklas Andreen, Gloval Vice President Hospitality & Partner Marketing for Travelport. “This partnership is very much aligned with our global drive to boost revenues for hotel customers and provide additional value to our travel agents clients.”
