Hotels.com

Hotels.com is a leading online accommodation booking website with more than 240,000 properties worldwide, ranging from international chains and all-inclusive resorts to local favourites and bed & breakfasts, together with all the information needed to book the perfect stay. Hotels.com benefits from one of the largest hotel contracting teams in the industry, negotiating the best rates for its customers, and offers frequent sales, special deals and promotions. Regular customer e-newsletters provide exclusive offers and advance warning of up-coming sales. There are over 10 million guest reviews on the site from users who have actually stayed in the hotels to ensure customers can make an informed choice when booking. Through its industry-leading loyalty program – Welcome Rewards – customers can earn a free night at more than 100,000 hotels for every 10 nights stayed. Under its Price Match Guarantee, if a customer can find the same deal for less on a prepaid hotel, Hotels.com will refund the difference. Travellers can book online or by contacting one of the multilingual call centres. Special apps for mobile phones and tablets can also be downloaded at mobile.hotels.com enabling customers to book on the go with access to 20,000 last minute deals. For the last ten years, Hotels.com has published an award-winning twice-yearly review of international hotel room price trends called the Hotels.com Hotel Price Index which is now produced in 31 individual country editions. Hotels.com is part of Expedia Inc., the largest online travel company in the world with an extensive portfolio that includes some of the world’s best-known brands.
