Ryanair’s diversification strategy led the airline to create its own accommodation service in 2016, to offer its more than 110 million customers a wide range of hotels, hostels, B&Bs and holiday homes, at advantageous prices. Ryanair Rooms emerged from the alliance with Hotels.com and Hotelopia, as well as agreements with three other major accommodation providers: Eviivo, Hotelsclub and HRS. However, it is now that the project has moved to the phase of direct contracting of hotels, which has motivated their interest in integration with Dingus.
The breakthrough in the business of the Irish company’s B2C platforms, mainly in the European market, today makes it possible to make available to customers more than 10 million rooms in establishments ranging from five-star hotels to hostels, and is “a technological achievement for the airline, in its policy of offering complementary services to the activity as an airline”.
In practice, Ryanair Rooms is an aggregator that collects “the best offers and rates, without recharging the prices offered on the portal. It is directly the hotel that controls both the visible rates and the availability charged on the direct costs of Ryanair Rooms. The operation is clear: the provider providing the booking is clearly indicated when selecting the accommodation and type of room. It is also indicated on the payment page before the reservation is confirmed. This confirmation arrives by email directly from the provider and within 24 hours”. Another feature of Ryanair Rooms is that myRyanair users can get bonuses from the company’s ‘Flight Credit’ program when they book through the platform. All doubts about the purchase conditions can be solved by visiting their help center.
