Wego, the largest online travel marketplace in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), and IHG Hotels & Resorts, one of the world's leading hotel companies, announced a global partnership that will expand traveler choice and convenience.
Under the terms of the partnership, Wego will list over 4,000 IHG hotels on its platform, including properties from 15 of IHG's brands, such as InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts, and Staybridge Suites. Wego users will be able to search for and book IHG hotels through Wego's website and mobile app, and they will also be able to access exclusive deals and discounts.
"We are delighted to partner with Wego, the number one travel app in MENA for flight search and booking", said James Britchford, Vive President Commercial, India, Middle East, and Africa at IHG Hotels & Resorts. "This partnership will give travelers in the MENA region more choice and convenience when booking hotels, and it will help up to expand our reach in this important market".
'This partnership is a great opportunity for us to expand our reach and offer our users more choices when it comes to booking hotels", said Craig Hewett, Chief Hotels Officer and Co-Founder of Wego. "We are confident that this partnership will be mutually beneficial for both IHG and Wego, and we look forward to working together to provide our users with the best possible travel experience".
The partnership between IHG and Wego is the latest in a series of moves by IHG to expand its reach in the MENA region. In recent months, IHG has opened new hotels in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Riyadh, and it has also announced plans to open several hotels in the region in the coming years.
The partnership is also a sign of the growing importance of the online travel market in the Middle East. In recent years, online travel marketplaces have become increasingly popular in the region, as they offer travelers a convenient and easy way to compare prices and book hotels.
The partnership between IHG and Wego is a win-win for both parties. It gives IHG access to a new pool of potential customers, and it gives Wego users access to a wider range of hotel options. The partnership is likely to benefit both companies as they continue to grow in the Middle East.
Wego is the largest online travel marketplace in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Wego provides travelers with access to over 1 million hotels, flights, and car rentals from over 150,000 travel suppliers worldwide. Wego is headquartered in Dubai, with offices in Cairo, Amman, and Riyadh.
