Vietnam-based travel booking platform VLeisure has partnered with Travel Prologue, a hotel direct booking service provider, to deliver live room rates and inventory to B2B channels like travel agencies, wholesalers and corporate travel intermediaries.
Under the partnership, VLeisure is able to provide an open ecology network to its customers, while leveraging on Travel Prologue’s hotel connectivity services and network of hotels such as Mandarin Orchard Singapore, Furama Hotels International and Berjaya Hotels & Resorts.
VLeisure’s technology will deliver “seamless payment solutions and many more efficiency driven modules for wholesalers and agents”.
VLeisure’s CEO Phan Le said: “An open ecosystem for the travel industry will be the next development in the hotel distribution business. There is no longer a ‘one man wins’ in hotel distribution anymore, making it more of a level playing field. Sharing technology is the way to go and Travel Prologue shares the same ideology with our vision on this.”
Travel Prologue’s managing director Ho Siang Twang said: “Our B2B hotel direct booking service, Trip Affiliates Network, is designed to help hotels and their B2B channels improve their direct bookings with one another.”
