Pattern will integrate its application programming interface (API) with Amadeus’s iHotelier Booking Engine to offer a range of travel protection options during the booking process, including coverage for weather, delays, cancellations, and medical expenses.
“Integrating trip protection options directly into the hotel booking process provides flexibility for the guest and keeps the entire experience stress free,” said Peter Altmann, Vice President, Mobility and Travel Protection, Hospitality at Amadeus. “There is a clear need for this in a highly competitive market, and it opens new opportunities for hoteliers to capture more direct bookings while providing ancillary revenue for small to mid-tier hotel chains. It’s important that we are leveraging our partnerships like the one with Pattern to offer both guests and hotels benefits that result in more rewarding journeys.”
Meitav Harpaz, Co-Founder and CEO, Pattern Insurance, added: “With Pattern, Amadeus can deploy different products depending on the regions. This gives both the hotel and its guests a high-value, more personalised and effective insurance offer as part of their booking experience.”
The new deal builds on the two companies’ longstanding collaboration. Pattern also recently agreed to offer insurance products via the Amadeus Selling Platform in November 2022.
