Amadeus has signed a major agreement with hotel aggregator DerbySoft to offer travellers access to more than 1,000 mid-range Chinese hotels on Amadeus Global Distribution System (GDS).

Over 100,000 travel agencies can now make bookings with more than 1,000 one to three-star and independent hotels located across China via Amadeus Direct Connect.

Ted Zhang, CEO of DerbySoft, said, At DerbySoft, it is our mission to offer international travellers the ability to book mid-range hotels in China before their arrival. This partnership with Amadeus will allow travellers to book our hotels through their travel agent when they are planning their holiday or business trip to China.

Direct Connect is built according to the Open Travel Alliance XML standard, a common language for travel-related terminology and a mechanism for promoting the exchange of information across all travel industry segments. With Direct Connect, hotels on the DerbySoft aggregator are able to add content, implement new features and enhancements as well as develop new offers more quickly. This not only allows hotels but also travel agents to meet the fast-changing demands of todays travellers.

Kartikeya Tripathi, Regional Director of Hotel Distribution, Amadeus Asia Pacific, said, In todays economic climate, many travellers are looking for mid-range hotels that are more budget-friendly. This partnership with DerbySoft is therefore very timely to meet that need for China-bound travellers.

Amadeus is investing significant resources to increase the Chinese travel options that are available for booking in our Global Distribution System, and DerbySoft will be one of many partnerships that we announce this year. This is part of our efforts to make travel to China even easier for international travellers, while also helping Chinese hotels reach out to new global markets, Tripathi added.

Headquartered in Shanghai, China, DerbySoft provides technology services for the Chinese hospitality industry including distribution and management infrastructure.
