Oxigen ties up with Hotel Avenues

November 28, 2011

35,000 Oxigen Web Touch Points will use HotelsAvenue ‘Hotel Room Inventory’ feed to sell Hotel Rooms.

November, 2011: This month, over 35,000 Oxigen’s Web Retail Touch Points will move a step closer to being a full service travel agency, thanks to the company’s tie-up with HotelsAvenue for its hotel room inventory feed. This will be an immense value-add to the retailers who are a part of the Oxigen network. In case you haven’t noticed, there is a small revolution quietly taking place. At every major street corner in the cities of India, you will see small retail establishments like Oxigen Touch Points selling Value Added Services, which use the internet as a backbone to offer various services to the man on the street that either doesn’t have a PC or access to the internet. One of the earliest players to recognize this opportunity was Oxigen Services India.

Today, over 35000 Oxigen Web Retail Touch Points across India offer rail tickets, air ticket and bus ticket booking services along with other services like bill payments, mobile/tv recharge, entertainment services and conference calling services etc. With the addition of the HotelsAvenue hotel room inventory feed, Oxigen Touch Point partner can increase his revenue and widen his market reach and relevance. Any customer can walk into an Oxigen Web Touch Point anywhere in India and instantly book a hotel room in any place ranging from New Delhi to New York, Chennai to Chicago, Cuttack to Copenhagen. What’s more, the room can be booked at rates that are so competitive, that a regular customer would rarely have access to such low rates.

The association will also offer easy transactional service to the customers who do not own credit, debit cards or net banking accounts and prefer using a cash based payment mechanism to purchase hotel rooms and hotel packages online. This would be done by using a stored value OxiCash e-wallet or OxiCash Cards to make secure payments on Oxicash’s website in the Hotels section. The Hotels webpage is also powered by HotelsAvenue.

The end-to-end technology for the hotel room inventory feed to the outlets will come from HotelsAvenue, a brand owned by Avenues, India’s biggest eCommerce company. HotelsAvenue will take care of the technology, contracting with the hotels and fulfillment of hotel rooms and packages. It will provide real time hotel room inventory of over 100,000 global hotels, which includes the highly elusive instantly bookable hotel room inventory of small to medium hotels in India. HotelsAvenue will be one of the leading providers of hotel room inventory for the Oxigen network and will power a white labelled microsite for OxiHotels on the Oxicash website. With this tie-up, HotelsAvenue easily outreaches every other competitor in this fragmented market space and will achieve immense depth of penetration in the country.

Mr. Pramod Saxena, Chairman and Managing Director, Oxigen had this to say, “While the travel sector is a booming one, it is also very fragmented. A lot of good independent hotels don’t get visibility they deserve because of limited marketing budgets. HotelsAvenue have done a tremendous job in consolidating room inventory from such hotels from all over the country. On our part, our 35,000 strong network of associates will help such hotels achieve booking accessibility in every nook and corner of this country. This will also open up a new revenue stream for our Oxigen Web connected Retail Touch Points.”
Mr. Vishwas Patel, CEO of Avenues says, “Oxigen’s strong on ground presence across India will help improve the visibility of our hotel room inventory and make us the biggest consolidator of hotel rooms in India. We have worked hard to ensure that the small one star and two star hotels in every corner of this vast country find representation in our HotelsAvenue hotel room inventory feed. This inventory is unique to us and will not be found anywhere else. The Oxigen Touch Points will make significant revenue gains from tie-up.”
