Singapore – Accor, a global hospitality operator has announced a new distribution partnership with Traveloka, Southeast Asia’s lifestyle superapp. The announcement was held at Raffles Jakarta, one of Accor’s luxury properties, in the presence of Accor’s CEO Southeast Asia, Japan & South Korea, Garth Simmons, and Traveloka’s COO, Alfan Hendro.
Accor and Traveloka’s connectivity partnership will allow visitors to access Accor properties in 13 countries via Traveloka’s platform. This is projected to increase as Traveloka expands its international business into Europe, where Accor is the dominant hotel group.
The partnership will also be supported by dedicated marketing initiatives such as In-app Exposure, Traveloka LIVE, and social media collaborations, which will help promote travel recovery throughout Southeast Asia. Travelers will be able to book a wide range of Accor hotels through this distribution network, with access to real-time availability, special deals, dedicated mobile pricing, and the convenience of payment for any transactions completed on the app.
Kerry Healy, chief commercial officer of Southeast Asia, Japan & South Korea at Accor, shared that this is the perfect time to launch their distribution partnership with Traveloka, as they will be a key distributor and partner to support their growing pace across Indonesia and drive outbound travellers to other markets in Southeast Asia and beyond.
“This partnership will allow us to increase the value proposition for our guests across the region, allowing great booking options and flexibility for avid travellers. We believe Traveloka is our ideal partner to strengthen our visibility on the Indonesian market thanks to our complementary expertise in lifestyle and travel,” Healy said.
Alfan Hendro, chief operating officer at Traveloka, commented, “With its extensive and diverse accommodation network, we are thrilled to welcome Accor into our comprehensive portfolio of offerings, bringing convenience even closer to our customers. Our strategic partnership with Accor will continue to cement Traveloka’s commitment in providing the best, seamless travel experience for our customers and accelerate stronger business growth in Southeast Asia.
Hendro added, “As a lifestyle superapp, we are revolutionizing lifestyle services for millions of consumers, redefining how they live, play, and discover new adventures in their very own backyards and across the world.”
