NetHotels.com + Globopolis.com = Rooms For You and Room to Grow!

 

On March 7th, NetHotels.com signed a far-reaching affiliation agreement with Globopolis.com (http://www.globopolis.com), a new and powerful content and commerce web site focusing on lifestyle, leisure, travel and tourism in Europe. The companies have signed a deal enabling users to book a stay at NetHotels.com accommodations facilities through the Globopolis.com web site. Visitors to Prague, Vienna, and Budapest will be able to plan leisure activities and book conveniently located hotel rooms on Globopolis.com. For each hotel reservation made in this manner, Globopolis.com will receive a commission from NetHotels.com. The agreement initially covers three key cities, but will expand progressively as both companies grow.

The CEO of NetHotels.com, Mr. Hans-Jürgen Pfisterer, said “We are delighted to be working with Globopolis.com in this way. We have just launched our affiliate program, and Globopolis.com is exactly the kind of dynamic and fast-growing partner we are seeking to leverage our state-of-the-art online hotel reservation system. Everybody gains: the client who benefits from more hotel choice and booking convenience, the hotel and NetHotels.com who see greater booking volume, and Globopolis.com who adds greater functionality to their website and shares in the booking commissions.”

"As Globopolis.com and NetHotels.com continue to grow, we expect this partnership to become even more beneficial to our users to each other. With travel as the fastest growing commerce segment on the Internet, and Europe as the top tourism destination in the world, our partnership with NetHotels.com enables us to provide an excellent service to an ever-increasing number of travellers", says Chip Schenck, VP of Marketing and Sales for Globopolis.com.
