SiteMinder has announced its latest integration partnership with luxury travel site, Jetsetter– a part of the TripAdvisor family of travel sites since April 2013.

Jetsetter is an online travel community that provides insider access and expert knowledge for exclusive deals on the world’s finest vacation destinations to its over 20 million members. The luxury site has connected to SiteMinder’s RDX platform, which offers a robust two-way, real-time XML connection between leading hotel booking channels, property management systems and central reservation systems worldwide.

“Jetsetter is excited to partner with SiteMinder," said Mario Bauduin, VP of sales at Jetsetter. "With the RDX platform’s best-in-class connectivity, we now have access to live rates and inventory at more of the world’s best hotels. This partnership reinforces Jetsetter’s commitment to our members by helping us provide the most competitive rates for our curated list of properties."
Through the partnership, SiteMinder’s high-end hotel clients can now distribute directly with Jetsetter, an otherwise-closed user group site which features only properties hand-selected by a team of 200 top travel journalists and meet an 85 percent approval rating from members. Hotels are assessed on their personality, great style and a sense of place.

“With the rise of online booking channels and review sites, today’s travelers are more sophisticated than ever before," said David Chestler, executive vice president– enterprise sales and business development at SiteMinder. "It was identified this year that hotels are no longer just an escape for travelers; they now provide very home-like experiences with luxury hotels, in particular, offering increasingly personalized options.[1]

“As with the recent announcement of our integration with Asia Pacific-based, SiteMinder is excited about this partnership as it provides a unique opportunity for our luxury property clients to gain exposure to the growing channels for luxury travelers. We are particularly thrilled Jetsetter has selected RDX, which spearheaded over 18 million reservations for hotels over the 12 months ending June 30, 2014. We are confident we will now see even greater results for our luxury brands over the coming year and beyond.”
