Serko partners with Booking.com broadening hotel inventory

Serko partners with Booking.com broadening hotel inventory


Auckland, New Zealand. 3 August 2015 – Serko Ltd. (SKO.NZ) A leader in online travel booking and expense management for business, announced today that it has partnered with Booking.com, the world’s number one accommodation site, to give Serko Online users access to the largest online hotel room resource.

The partnership will add an extensive range of Australasian properties from Booking.com’s inventory of 600,000 properties worldwide. Booking.com guarantees the best price for any type of property – from small independents to five star luxury accommodation.

Booking.com has a large range of inventory across the regional areas of Australasia, which makes it particularly valuable to Serko Online customers that have accommodation requirements outside of the major cities. Unlike other online travel agents, most of Booking.com’s inventory is ‘pay when you stay’ and incurs no cancellation fees, which means it is fully aligned with the way that corporates prefer to book and pay for accommodation.

Darrin Grafton, Serko’s chief executive officer, says “By becoming the aggregator of the aggregators we remove the need for corporate accommodation bookers to leave Serko Online to access the hotel content that we know they want. By adding the Booking.com inventory to Serko Online we’ve got comprehensive coverage not just in Australia and New Zealand, but also across Asia and into India.”

The Booking.com hotel inventory is expected to become available to Serko Online customers later in 2015.
