Stuart Dale, Asia Retail Sales Regional Director commented, "15 years ago we launched in Spain, our founding market, and after the formula for success was perfected we exported the model to Indonesia later in 2011."

"Therefore I am very pleased to have this opportunity to celebrate the launch of a new Bedsonline for clients in Indonesia! We appreciate that asking our customers to make a change is inconvenient for them. But we hope to give our clients confidence in our new Bedsonline platform. Travel retailers in Indonesia will learn how the enhanced offerings will help all our partners boost revenues and profits by getting access to a greatly enhanced portfolio, following the combination of the various retail travel agent offerings of the company into one brand, Bedsonline."

"The feedback about the Bedsonline platform has been fantastic - due to its superior functionality -but we're looking to continue to improve the experience still further, beyond the booking platform itself, by establishing a truly 360-degree proposition to fully support the growth of our travel agent partners."

Elif Esen, Singapore & Indonesia Retail Sales Regional Manager added, "We have been speaking with our customers to explain to them how they will benefit from these changes. It gives me great pleasure to present the new enhanced offerings, improved payment options, operational support and loyalty rewards program to our travel retailers in Indonesia. We commit to continue serving our clients with our global practice and local knowledge in this fast-growing travel market."

Likewise, the company used the occasion to showcase the recently renewed brand image - revealed in September - and to offer details on the new and enlarged product portfolio. This strategy has allowed Bedsonline not only to strengthen the offer, but also to provide a new 360º solution that improves the experience of travel agents.

The new Bedsonline platform now offers to travel agents globally the following benefits:

  1. Diverse and competitive product portfolio: over 170,000 hotels globally available (with over 90,000 of those directly sourced, making the content both unique and competitively priced), 24,000 transfer routes and 18,000 activities, PLUS 140,000 cars available for hire - all sourced by a team of over 1,000 contractors globally.
  2.
