Impala’s hotel inventory will be featured across Kayak and its travel meta search brands SWOODOO, checkfelix, momondo, Cheapflights, Mundi and HotelsCombined, spanning more than 60 destinations.
Impala’s partners can now book directly through Kayak, while Kayak users will have access to luxury hotel brands, such as Como Hotels and Small Luxury Hotels of the World, along with a wide range of hotels in all star categories.
Kayak VP Global Hotels Rachel Hafner said: “Hotels are favoured by many travellers, and the addition of Impala’s hotel inventory increases the choice for our users with new, differentiated accommodation providers. Especially in destinations where demand is outgrowing supply, such as the UK, Italy and the Middle East.”
Impala founder and CEO Ben Stephenson added: “We are proud to lead the trend of open distribution and are delighted to partner with Kayak to enable more hotels to be featured across valuable meta search platforms, which will bring new opportunities and revenue.”
