Gothenburg, Sweden (September 18, 2015) – ArrivalGuides’ network of distribution partners is experiencing a period of surging growth with the addition of a significant number of major travel brands, including Helloworld, Worldhotels, AAA, rentalcars.com and Milano Airport.
ArrivalGuides supplies its distribution network of over 330 major global brands with content supplied directly from over 550 tourism bureaus and destination experts. These influential global brands are using the official content of ArrivalGuides, including pictures and videos, in a variety of ways to inspire millions of their own customers and to reach out to potential new ones.
It works like this: once information is uploaded by the tourism boards and destination experts to the ArrivalGuides system, it automatically updates to its vast network of distribution partners, a network which includes OTAs, search engines, cruise companies, airlines, tour companies and travel operators. These distribution partners then implement this content into their platforms in all formats, including online, downloadable PDF, mobile apps, in-flight entertainment systems, booking confirmation e-mails and Smart TV apps, thus reaching unparalleled numbers of new customers.
AAA, North America’s largest motoring and leisure travel organization, for example, has partnered with ArrivalGuides to build upon its international destination information for its more than 55 million members.
“The ArrivalGuides platform will enhance the travel information content used by AAA and provide additional international destination information that is a great value for our members and travel counsellors,” said Bill Sutherland, AAA Senior Vice President of Travel and Publishing.
Similarly, rentalcars.com, the world’s largest online car rental service, has also decided to use the destination content of ArrivalGuides, knowing the added benefit it will have for its customers, as has Australian travel booking company Webjet.
More recently, ArrivalGuides has further expanded its distribution network by signing up with Helloworld, one of Australia’s biggest travel agency groups, and with Worldhotels, an exclusive group of independent hotels, with a handpicked portfolio of almost 500 properties in 250 destinations and 65 countries around the world. And the number keeps growing every day, as ArrivalGuides continues to draw more distribution partners into its ever-expanding network.
ArrivalGuides is excited about the increase of new distribution partners joining the network and implementing all of its up-to-date destination information into their systems.
