Amadeus buys Trav­elClick

Travel Daily - - News -

THE ru­moured ac­qui­si­tion of Trav­elClick by Amadeus ( TD 03 Aug) has been con­firmed, with a US$1.52 bil­lion deal set to see over 1,100 Trav­elClick staff join the Amadeus team.

Trav­elClick of­fers a range of ser­vices in­clud­ing cloud-based guest man­age­ment so­lu­tions and a Cen­tral Reser­va­tion Sys­tem for in­de­pen­dent & mid-sized ho­tels.

Trav­elClick is head­quar­tered in New York City and cur­rently has over 25,000 cus­tomers in 176 coun­tries across the globe.

“The ad­di­tion of Trav­elClick’s so­lu­tions to the Amadeus port­fo­lio will cre­ate a hos­pi­tal­ity leader pro­vid­ing a broad range of in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy to ho­tels and chains of all sizes across the globe,” the com­pa­nies said.

Spokesman Fran­cisco Perez- Lozao said along­side ex­ist­ing strong re­la­tion­ships with large ho­tel groups such as IHG ( TD 29 Apr 2015), the Trav­elClick deal gave Amadeus ac­cess to the mid-chain and in­de­pen­dent ho­tel seg­ment that made up al­most three-quar­ters of the mar­ket.

“We can now serve the en­tire in­dus­try with a very broad port­fo­lio of so­lu­tions and we are look­ing for sig­nif­i­cant growth in the years ahead.”
