Amex GBT expands hotel content

American Express Global Business Travel has expanded its accommodation programme to comprise more than two million properties worldwide.

The new content has been added through the extension of GBT’s existing partnership with booking.com, adding ‘more properties in different types of locations’.

Accommodation options available through the GBT booking tool – and via GBT travel counsellors – include major hotel chains, independent hotels, extended stay options and ‘non-traditional’ lodgings.

Users can now also access booking.com Genius Rates which offer savings of at least 10% on bookings at ‘thousands’ of hotels worldwide.

“We are determined to give clients and travellers access to the widest range of accommodation choices, with a vast range of properties and property types, all bookable through OBTs,” says Wesley Bergstrom, GBT Vice President, Global Supplier Relations.

Travellers have no reason to search for accommodation anywhere else: they can find everything they want in one place, and confirm their accommodation and transportation in a single booking.”
