Kuoni launches accommodation-only website

The Kuoni Group has launched an accommodation-only website,

The website uses the Kuoni brand but will be operated by Octopus Travel, part of Gullivers Travel Associates, which was bought by Kuoni earlier this year.

Everything from an initial enquiry through to booking, payment and accommodation will be delivered by Octopus Travel.

The site features over 50,000 hotels, rated three-star and above with a TripAdvisor rating of three or more, where a rating is available.

Derek Jones, Kuoni vice president for distribution and operations said: “The hotel product on Kuoni Hotels has been carefully selected to provide breadth of choice but also to maintain the Kuoni brand and high levels of expectation from Kuoni customers.”
