At the end of September 2016 Ryanair will stop partnering with Booking,com and begin their own low-cost accommodation service called Ryanair Rooms on 01 October.
They are inviting hostel operators, among a variety of other accommodation providers, to submit proposals to sell our beds through this service.
From Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs:
“Ryanair’s low fares revolutionised air travel for Europe’s passengers – now with “Ryanair Rooms”, we’re going to transform booking accommodation. Launching on 1st October, “Ryanair Rooms” will offer consumers the biggest range of accommodation, including hotels, hostels, B&Bs, homestays and villas, via the Ryanair.com website, but all with the same lowest prices we guarantee with our flights.
More and more customers are looking to Ryanair for products other than flights, and we see this as a natural progression towards Ryanair.com becoming the Amazon of air travel. It also echoes the change in demand from customers for different types of accommodation, which in turn will be reflected by the varied range “Ryanair Rooms” will offer – from five-star hotel rooms to independent homestay. We look forward to receiving proposals from interested partners who want to help us disrupt the travel industry once more.”
If you would like Ryanair to send your hostel a request for proposal, contact [email protected]. The requirement is that you must offer the lowest possible price for Ryanair customers (rate parity with your lowest price).
