Release TripSource Hotels integrates with Concur Travel

BCD Travel and Concur partner to deliver greater hotel content to Concur Travel

UTRECHT, The Netherlands, Nov. 17, 2017 – BCD Travel’s clients who use Concur Travel will gain access to the same expansive hotel choices already available to travelers who book hotels using a BCD agent or the TripSource® app and website, BCD’s traveler engagement platform.

The integration between TripSource and Concur Travel will provide business travelers with access to over one million unique property options across the globe, letting them choose from over 15 million hotel rate shopping choices. Ensuring availability to desirable rooms and rates is critical, because the success of a company’s travel program depends on earning the confidence of travelers that they can find what they want in-program.

“Travelers should have access to the same rooms and rates whether they’re booking through an agent, their online booking tool or their mobile device,” said Yannis Karmis, BCD Travel SVP, Product Planning & Development. “Our integration with Concur Travel reflects our progress in meeting that marketplace expectation.”

In addition to helping ensure that travelers can find the hotel accommodations they expect when traveling on business, the integration will also help fix the problem of inconsistent content across booking channels.

The BCD hotel program combines content from Global Distribution Systems with that of leading hotel booking aggregators and private hotels. It lets travelers book client-negotiated rates and offers from hotel chains and private hotels alike— including fully flexible, restrictive, pre-paid, package, wholesale and mobile rates.

“Concur and BCD have a shared goal of offering comprehensive, competitive properties and rates.  Supplementing GDS content with BCD’s hotel program is a great win for our mutual clients and travelers.”  We are pleased to work together to bring this solution to clients worldwide,” said Mike Koetting, Concur EVP, Supplier and TMC Services.

BCD Travel’s integration with Concur Travel will launch with a pilot group of users. BCD’s hotel booking engine will integrate with Concur Travel by utilizing a proprietary Concur Hotel API. BCD Travel’s reporting and analytics platform will capture traveler data, ensuring accessibility to important business trip information.

In addition to greater hotel content, BCD Travel’s relationship with Concur offers businesses a powerful way to bring more travel spend and trip components under management —air, hotel, car and rail inventory, parking, ground transportation and dining. In combining BCD’s full-service travel management with Concur’s online booking and expense solutions, the two companies provide among the broadest offering for capturing, measuring and managing travel spend in the market today.
