Amadeus, a global leader in technology and distribution solutions for the travel and tourism industry, has signed over 130 major hotel brands for its Best Available Rate program.

Hotels which have signed up for the program have seen their bookings through Amadeus grow by between 10 percent and 30 percent. Travel agents and corporations can be confident that hotel rates in Amadeus are as good as, or better than, hotel rates in other distribution systems or on the hotel’s own Web site.

"The Amadeus Best Available Rate program helps us to demonstrate our commitment to travel agents," said Andrew Rubinacci, vice president of distribution marketing EMEA of InterContinental Hotels and Resorts. "We want travel agents to feel comfortable that they can find the best InterContinental rate for their customers using Amadeus Hotels, without having to shop around."

“We are extremely pleased that so many hotels are giving a firm commitment to rate parity across the distribution channels,” said Antoine Medawar, managing director, Amadeus Hospitality Business Group. “And travel agents are rewarding this commitment by making more hotel bookings through the efficient GDS/travel agency channel.”
