One of Europe’s fast-growing bedbanks, Veturis Travel, has collaborated with the global hotel industry’s leading cloud platform, SiteMinder, to fortifying its presence within the region and Asia. The wholesaler is increasing its investment in cloud-based technology for expanding its direct contracts with hotels.
Veturis Travel today supports more than 180,000 hotels via a business-to-business interface and connectivity with travel agencies and destination management companies in more than 70 countries, including the US where more than 13,000 hotels are based. It has established market presence in Italy, France and Thailand, as well as its home country of Spain, and is aiming to deepen its penetration within other rising destinations across Europe and Asia.
Said Irma Mesa, the Head of Sales Support at Veturis Travel, “At Veturis Travel, we have a philosophy that’s based on the synergy between people and technology. The landscape for wholesalers is changing and key to remaining relevant is specialisation and adding value to our partners, to help them compete through distribution. Our partnership with SiteMinder represents a great, strategic evolution of Veturis Travel and an opportunity to explore new possibilities while strengthening what has made our business successful to date.”
In addition to hotels, Veturis Travel has specialized over the years in cruises, transfers, tour packages and other travel products. The London Stock Exchange Group last year ranked Veturis Travel in its list of ‘1,000 Companies to Inspire Europe’.
