easyJet has signed an exclusive agreement with Booking.com, which the carrier describes as Europe’s – and the world’s – hotel reservation leader.
The deal makes available more than 200,000 properties worldwide for easyJet customers to book. With over 120,000 properties in easyJet destinations, customers will be able to access Booking.com’s accommodation service via a bespoke reservation tool from the easyJet website.
“We are really pleased to announce our collaboration with Booking.com. It will enable our customers to choose from a wider range of Europe’s leading hotels, with greater flexibility and at guaranteed, best-available prices,” explained Catherine Lynn, easyJet’s customer and revenue director. “Both easyJet and Booking.com believe in the importance of providing customers with value for money and a service that’s easy and convenient and this agreement delivers exactly that. We are sure it will be popular with our customers.”
The deal offers enhanced booking options such as ‘Pay after you Stay’ and gives customers the lowest prices backed up by a Best Price Guarantee. It also offers them the flexibility to book a hotel online immediately after they make their flight booking or any time prior to their flight departure – even on the same day as their actual flight.
Paul Hennessy, Booking.com’s chief marketing officer commented, “We’re delighted to be working with easyJet. Booking.com will make it easier and more engaging for easyJet customers to get the best hotel prices on hundreds of thousands of hotels and accommodation worldwide.”
