Expedia Affiliate Network and ANIXE join forces to expand hotel supply to Central and Eastern European travel markets
Travel providers in Central and Eastern Europe will now be able to access Expedia Affiliate Network’s (EAN) full suite of hotel accommodations, competitive rates and availabilities following an agreement with ANIXE.
ANIXE, headquartered in Poland, offers innovative and customizable travel technology solutions and services to its partners. Under the agreement, ANIXE now has access to more than 350,000 hotels worldwide via EAN’s robust API. Through ANIXE’s offline data exporting and distribution capabilities under its Resfinity brand, EAN’s hotel rate information will be accessible in a variety of different industry standard formats.
The new venture will broaden and deepen ANIXE’s hotel inventory offering, particularly in Central and Eastern Europe, where many travel providers were previously unable to access EAN’s rates and availability due to differences in data management methods in those regions.
Alfonso Paredes, Vice President, Sales EMEA and LATAM, EAN brand, says: “At EAN we are constantly evolving our product offering in line with our partner’s feedback and the needs of the global travel market. Alongside continuous product innovation, we source and invest in technology partners that unlock new opportunities to support the travel industry.
“ANIXE’S technology has allowed us to reach more travel partners in the tour operator, airline and flight ticket retailer sectors, particularly in Central and Eastern Europe, where there is specific demand for EAN’s extensive accommodation portfolio and competitive rates and availability.”
Piotr Żołnierek, CEO, ANIXE, says: “A key factor in our decision to work with EAN was the ability to offer our partners access to its package rates and vitally, more available hotel rooms in more countries across the globe.”
Żołnierek continues: “We are excited to be able to tap into EAN’s last minute booking capabilities, which will be particularly valuable to our airline partners whose travellers prefer choice and flexibility when it comes to booking their accommodation.”
