Hotel solutions provider HRS has signed a new multi-year agreement with hospitality giant Accor, where under the terms of the agreement, HRS’ roster of global corporate clients will be able to access the most competitive rates and flexible terms from Accor properties.
Business travellers, who are members of Accor’s loyalty programmes, Le Club AccorHotels (which will be enhanced by the end of the year under the new name ALL – Accor Live Limitless), will also be able to gain points and rewards when booking via HRS corporate channels.
Robert Hornman, senior vice president of HRS EMEA, said in a statement: “Beyond working more cohesively during the hotel sourcing process, we leverage our direct connect pipeline with Accor to drive more efficient sharing of Accor’s rates, amenities and corporate-friendly contract terms to managed travel programmes and business travellers.”
“HRS has made tremendous strides in expanding its direct relationships with the multi-national and regional corporations Accor seeks to grow volume with,” added Markus Keller, senior vice president of global sales for Accor. “Their data-driven mindset increasingly marries with our approach to working with corporations, and we’re confident that this newly-defined level of engagement with HRS will help drive valuable business travellers to our hotels around the world.”
