  • Car hire products from 500 car rental suppliers through Hotelbeds’ B2B car rental brand CARNECT. Servantrip will go live with this product from April 2021.

Meanwhile Beyond The Bed’s ancillary supplier partners benefit from strengthened distribution through the Servantrip platform that will power real-time bookings from the 7,100 travel agencies and OTAs across 97 countries that use Servantrip.

In addition the Servantrip platform allows users to make several bookings in the same reservation, thus increasing cross-selling opportunities for Beyond the Bed partners.

We have been working hard over the last few years to offer our ancillary partners access to an even wider distribution network and Servantrip, with its own proprietary technology solution, will provide real-time bookings from more than 7,100 travel trade customers. This partnership works as the perfect win-win, with Hotelbeds working as the ancillary product specialist and Servantrip as the technology partner.”

José Manuel Núñez, Managing Director at Servantrip added: “We are dedicated to giving our B2B clients the widest possible portfolio of ancillary solutions under the best possible terms and conditions. The high-quality products available from Hotelbeds’ Beyond The Bed portfolio – over 18,000 activities, 25,000 transfer routes and 500 car rental providers worldwide – fulfills our commitment and additionally its cloud-based technology matches our need for a simple, no-fuss solution.”
