The Expedia group and Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts have announced a strategic technology partnership which will enable the global hotel chain to offer package bookings directly on www.bahiaprincipe.com US point-of-sale.
Package bookings drive incremental demand for hotel partners as package bookings typically have one and a half times the length of stay than a standalone hotel booking and half the cancellation rate.
Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts boasts twenty-six properties spread across the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Jamaica, Canary Islands and the Balearics. It is part of the prestigious Grupo Piñero, one of the largest companies in the Spanish tourism sector.
By using Expedia’s best-in-class technology, the company’s new package booking option will enable its consumers booking on Bahia Principe’s US points-of-sale to combine their stay at a Bahia Principe hotel with a flight booking from one of more than 500 Expedia airline partners, driving incremental demand and revenue for the hotel group.
The package path is now live on Bahia Principe’s U.S. point-of-sale. This strategic technology partnership follows other hotel chain’s announcements, including Expedia also powering Marriott International, Inc.’s “Vacations by Marriott” site.
