Book hotels online in Germany, starting with Munich
Continuing its rapid expansion strategy in Europe and elsewhere, NetHotels.com is now opening its online internet hotel booking service in Germany, starting with Munich.
Clients can search and book Munich hotels in the website’s comprehensive and growing database of over 330 hotels. As the internet increasingly becomes the medium of choice for convenient reservations around the clock, NetHotels.com offers the client a very friendly user interface, instant online booking of partner hotels, a call centre providing local expertise and assistance, and greater flexibility in booking. For example, he is not forced to provide credit card details over the net, but can choose to fax these details or prepay instead.
During ITB, agreement was also signed for Minotel International’s Munich hotels to become online partners within the NetHotels.com state-of-the-art online booking system. This means that rooms in these hotels can be reserved instantly online. Using a simple login on the NetHotels.com website, Minotel hotels at any time can easily modify or close room availability and prices in the NetHotels system. In this way the hotels have good yield management capability, and clients benefit from the latest prices and availability.
The CEO of NetHotels.com, Mr. Hans-Jürgen Pfisterer, said “Recently we launched the UK and Hungary, starting with London and Budapest respectively. Germany is the next step in our strategy to be a prime online booking website for hotels in Europe and elsewhere. We are pleased that Minotel, a strong international hotel group, will be involved from the start in Munich as this validates the strength and user-friendliness of our system. We are looking forward to working with the group as we expand rapidly into other destinations in which they are present.”
Minotel International is a pan-European hotel consortium, currently representing more than 700 hotels in 31 countries and with headquarters in Lausanne. It is a voluntary chain of carefully selected hotels, all of good standard and superior quality. Minotel International is expanding worldwide with plans to cover the Americas, Oceania, the Far East, the Middle East and Japan.
