INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — Ensemble Travel Group is launching a new hotel booking platform powered by Hotelzon, a Travelport company.
The platform, Ensemble Hotel Express, will give priority display to Ensemble’s Hotel & Resort Collection and the amenities that program includes.
In another new development, Ensemble will display rates from Radius, a company specializing in corporate travel. Ensemble members will be able to book more than 39,000 hotels in 137 countries through Radius.
The Hotelzon platform is tailored to the individual agent. When an Ensemble member makes a booking, that member’s IATA number will be the only one the hotel sees.
“Our new partnerships with Hotelzon and Radius Travel will put our members in a very competitive position to ramp up both their corporate and leisure business,” said Libbie Rice, Ensemble’s co-president, during the opening session of the 2014 Ensemble Travel Group International Conference.
Ensemble will complete its migration to the new platform in December.
