Cloudbeds has partnered with TripAdvisor® to give hoteliers access to the TripAdvisor TripConnect™ instant booking functionality.
TripConnect instant booking allows guests to book rooms directly on TripAdvisor. Cloudbeds is now a certified TripConnect Premium Partner, having completed an in-depth seamless integration between myallocator, the Cloudbeds channel manager, and TripConnect instant booking. This allows hoteliers to list their room inventory and acquire bookings directly from their property page on TripAdvisor.
“We’re pleased to be partnering with Cloudbeds to provide access to instant booking on TripAdvisor for the thousands of hotels and hostels using myallocator by Cloudbeds,” said Maud Larpent, Director, Direct Connect Development, TripAdvisor. “TripConnect Premium Partners empower hoteliers to drive more bookings directly from their property page on TripAdvisor, creating a smooth and easy booking process for the traveler and putting the hotel in touch with their guest from the moment the reservation is made.”
In addition to gaining certification as a TripConnect Premium Partner, Cloudbeds has completed many optional integrations to give their hotel customers more options. Not only can hoteliers now update their rates and availability on TripAdvisor, they can also update their room names, descriptions, room photos, room amenities, property photos, and more. This deep integration allows Cloudbeds customers to enjoy a detailed marketing presence on TripAdvisor that is always up-to-date.
Myallocator by Cloudbeds powers inventory deliverability for thousands of hotels, hostels, and B&Bs in over 100 countries across the globe. With over 300 integrated marketing channels, it has more than any other channel manager on the market. This gives hoteliers the freedom to list their inventory with previously unknown online marketplaces.
“TripConnect instant booking is a disruptive innovation that our customers are eager to access,” said Adam Harris, CEO of Cloudbeds. “We strive to provide our customers with more options, because we know that hotels connected to more online marketplaces tend to make more money. We’re excited to offer TripConnect instant booking as a new marketing and distribution option for our customers.”
Independent hoteliers have had a hard time listing their vacant inventory with distribution channels. Each OTA and channel has it’s own set of hurdles to leap through to get connected. This has led to an environment where franchises and large groups have dominated OTA listings.
Cloudbeds created their channel manager myallocator to make it easier to connect to online marketplaces. Myallocator saves hoteliers time and money by eliminating the need for technical know-how to get listed. It helps hoteliers list their rooms on as many OTAs as they wish with the push of a button. Plus, it exposes their rooms to new marketplaces hoteliers might not have known existed.
