By Andy Hoskins published 14/02/20
Israeli hotel booking platform Arbitrip has opened an office in the UK to help drive its expansion across the EMEA region.
Arbitrip describes itself as an innovative technology company dedicated to simplifying travel management.
It uses AI and machine learning to monitor customer behaviour in order to make personalized accommodation recommendations. It claims to reduce users’ hotel costs by more than 23%.
The company also provides 24/7 support by phone, instant messaging, WhatsApp and email.
As part of its official launch in the UK, Arbitrip has signed a strategic partnership with shared office space provider LABS.
The agreement gives LABS members access to discounted hotel deals with up to 60 suppliers that it says would normally only be available to travel agencies and large businesses with significant booking volumes.
Co-founder and CEO Benny Yonovich says: “Arbitrip’s growth over the last year has been exceptional as we have grown our reach outside of Israel and begun to penetrate various European markets.
“We now have a great opportunity to strengthen our business in partnership with LABS, which has a phenomenal presence in the UK. The opening of our UK office is just the beginning of our strategic plan for further global expansion in 2020.”
Tom Mancherov, VP Business Development for LABS, adds: “The ability to provide all our members access to exclusive services and preferential rates, usually only available to big corporate partners, is exactly the sort of service we are proud to be in a position to offer.”
Arbitrip’s current clients include HP, Gett, E&Y, BDO, Fiverr, Freeformers, Holovis, AppsFlyer, IronSource and Kape.
