Sydney, Australia, July 23, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- BookDirectRooms.com’s unique stock of over 2,000 UK B&Bs, guesthouses and small, independent hotels is now live and bookable on hotel search engine and price comparison website HotelsCombined.com.
Leisure and business travellers visiting HotelsCombined.com have now access to real-time rates and availability for a fantastic range of small, independently owned accommodation businesses offering a much more personal and individual experience than the hotels of the larger chains. Whether travellers are looking for a rural idyll near a Cumbrian market town or a boutique B&B on the Cornish coast, BookDirectRooms.com returns a refreshing array of smaller properties throughout the UK.
Thanks to this new partnership, BookDirectRooms.com will also distribute its inventory through HotelsCombined.com’s affiliate network which will give these smaller players in the tourism industry a unique opportunity to increase their online exposure and reach a truly global online audience.
Yury Shar, Managing Director of HotelsCombined.com commented: “BookDirectRooms.com’s portfolio of hotels in popular and unique UK destinations strengthens our services in the UK market and yields better quality results for our customers”.
Alistair MacGregor, Channel Manager at BookDirectRooms.com, said: "HotelsCombined.com’s comprehensive user interface and speed of search make it very easy for travellers to find and book the best value accommodation. Displaying our properties’ rates alongside those of the larger chain hotels will give travellers the most comprehensive results possible in terms of where to stay and at what price, and will also introduce them to some great properties that they would not traditionally be able to book directly online."
