to Competitive Hotel Inventory
from Leading Hotel Brands
DALLAS - March 24, 2004 - Increasing access to quality hotel accommodations at discounted prices, AAA and Travelweb announced today a distribution agreement to provide AAA members access to Travelweb’s net-rate inventories from more than 12,000 hotels worldwide. Through the agreement, AAA members can now book some of AAA’s preferred partner hotels at more competitive rates.
Travelweb is helping AAA increase its member benefits by giving the travel organization a broader selection of world-class hotels and resorts at discounted rates including many of AAA’s two-, three-, four- and five-diamond hotels. Included in the thousands of hotels available through Travelweb are the chains and properties of Travelweb’s owners - Hilton, Hyatt, InterContinental, Marriott and Starwood hotels.
The agreement with Travelweb began in late 2003 and complements AAA’s already expansive array of products and services for travelers while broadening its product offering, strengthening its online capabilities, and increasing revenue potential.
“When our members take to the road or air for vacations they look for quality accommodations at affordable prices. Teaming with Travelweb gives those members real-time access to the most competitive rates at hotels from Seattle to Miami and everywhere in between,” said Lee Granger, Managing Director of Travel Technology for AAA.
“Travelweb’s seamless distribution network gives AAA the opportunity to offer its members and agents great deals on popular hotels in the top vacation destinations worldwide,” said Jaynne Allison, Chief Operating Officer for Travelweb LLC. “It’s important to us to team with online distributors like AAA that are well respected by consumers and can deliver the booking volume that all of our participating hotels deserve.”
Travelweb also offers AAA’s travel agencies access to properties in virtually every destination, increasing travel agents’ ability to secure accommodations for their customers without losing them to other online discounters.
