Triptease partners with six global booking engines to further drive direct bookings

Price Check now available to over 10,000 hotels

PRESS RELEASE (22 April 2015): London-based start-up Triptease today announced partnerships with seven global hotel booking engine providers. Availpro, WebHotelier, Idiso, Simple Booking, Regatta and BeBetter are among the first to come on board to offer Price Check to their clients in order to drive direct bookings.

Price Check is a smart widget that sits on hotel websites and displays prices from across the web in real-time. It reduces uncertainty surrounding a hotel’s direct price, saving consumers research time and giving them the confidence to book direct. Initial results have been strong with early partners seeing a 35% increase in onsite conversions in the first month.

“We have been delighted by the commitment from so many well-established global booking engine providers. I think we were all pleasantly surprised by just how effective Price Check has been in driving direct bookings for their clients”, said Alexandra Zubko, Head of Business Development at Triptease. “Does it solve all a hotel business’s problems in one move? No. But with our simple integration process even more hoteliers across the world can turn more lookers to bookers and drive their direct bookings by 35% within a month.”

“The Triptease team is fast proving that they are a strategic partner when it comes to helping our clients increase their direct bookings. The Price Check widget is deceptively simple but yet hugely effective in building not just conversions but also longer-term consumer trust in going direct. We’re thrilled to be able to offer it to our 4,000 clients,” said Mathieu Verhaeghe, Partnership Manager at Availpro.

Jaideep Advani, Director of Product Development at Regatta Travel Solutions added: “The entire industry is struggling with how to reduce abandonment throughout the booking process and especially on the check-out screen, and Triptease has just nailed it.  Their Price Check technology is a perfect fit with everything else that we are doing to help hotels increase conversions and win back their direct booking volume.”
