SYDNEY, May 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading global travel service provider Group – which comprises some of the industry's largest brands including, Ctrip, Skyscanner, and Qunar – is delighted to unveil its latest partnership with the world's leading independent online booking and distribution platform – Rezdy. This partnership aims to leverage cutting-edge technology to enhance connectivity between tour and activity operators, and travellers worldwide.

By harnessing Rezdy's API integration, providers within the Group ecosystem will have access to connect and promote their tours to end customers in real-time – automating pricing updates, availability, and content through this API. This integration simplifies overall operations for operators, eliminating the need to create updates across multiple channels, and ensures that end-users of Group have access to the latest offerings and best deals.

This partnership will unlock fresh travel options for Group users. For example:

  • Join a cruise in the breathtaking Great Barrier Reef region and observe the vibrant ecosystem of island rainforests, coral reefs, and marine life;
  • Watch whales swim gracefully in their natural habitat and imagine a day in the life of these giant creatures;
  • Jump out of a plane and experience the adrenaline rush as you dive to the ground with the protection of a parachute;
  • Get a birds-eye view of the magnificent landscape as you ascend to the sky in a hot balloon in company with fellow adventurers;
  • Conquer the historic Sydney Harbour Bridge by climbing along its upper arch all the way to the top;
  • And many more.

In 2023, Group witnessed triple-digit growth in bookings for tours and tickets globally compared to the previous year, signalling a substantial recovery of the travel market and especially the surge of interest in distinctive and engaging adventures. Through this partnership, Rezdy operators of all sizes will be able to tap into Group's vast customer base across Asia, Oceania, North America, Europe, and beyond.

"Increasingly, tourists are no longer satisfied with mere sightseeing but rather eager to engage in unique, immersive experiences," said Chase Liu, General Manager of Tours and Tickets Overseas, Group. "Enhancing our connectivity with local tour and activity partners with the help of Rezdy offers exciting new ways for travellers to explore their destinations. We look forward to driving the next trends in experiential tourism together through our mutual dedication to technological innovation."
