High-end consumers visiting Forbes Traveler will have their prayers answered early next year when they can book their dream vacations instantaneously using Kiwi Collection’s hotel booking engine.
Forbes and Kiwi Collection, one of the world’s largest luxury hotel directory, announced a deal yesterday that allows visitors to www.forbestraveler.com to book hotels from the site. In addition, Kiwi Collection’s entire listing of luxury accommodations, consisting of 2,100 hotels and resorts in 140 countries, will be featured on Forbes Traveler.
Not only does this deal mean great things for discerning travelers looking for an easier way to find and book luxury accommodations online, but also greater exposure for all of the hotels in Kiwi Collection’s directory to millions of people who are interested in staying in high-end accommodations.
“We’re very excited to be working with Kiwi Collection. Until now, consumers visiting forbestraveler.com had to go off-site to make a reservation for their chosen hotel, through other providers. Kiwi Collection will add another dimension of service for their properties so our users can seamlessly review a hotel’s style, setting, features and rates, and immediately book their stay,” said Forbes.com CEO and President Jim Spanfeller.
Visitors to Forbes Traveler will not only enjoy an easier way to book hotels through the site, but will be able to take advantage of negotiated value-added VIP amenities and upgrades, coupled with the best rates available online.
“This is a great fit,” says Kiwi Collection CEO Erik Haugen. “Forbes Traveler and Kiwi Collection are completely focused on providing luxury travelers with trusted advice. Not only is it a great match for us but, more importantly, for our customers.”
