DENVER – (April 2017) – Hotel Engine,® a leading hotel booking platform, announces accelerated year-over-year growth with triple-figure increases as well as an aggressive global expansion that will raise inventory to more than 600,000 hotels worldwide by the end of 2017.
The flourishing bootstrapped company, which is used and trusted by more than 11,000 reputable companies, reports record-breaking figures from 2015 to 2016 in all categories, including:
- Revenue Growth: +303%
- Companies: +259%
- Business Users: +475%
- Total User Bookings: +563%
The platform is on track for another record-breaking year in 2017, already far surpassing these impressive statistics with a 244% revenue gain within Q1 of 2017 alone, as compared to the same time frame last year. Almost 40% of the site’s total users joined in the first three months of this year, a jump of 452%, positioning 2017 to outperform 2016 by an unprecedented amount.
“Hotel Engine’s tremendous growth is a humbling testament to our customer-driven philosophy,” said Elia Wallen, founder and president of Hotel Engine. “We designed the platform in response to client demand, letting word-of-mouth about its quality and value become the driving force behind its rising status.”
The digital service is rapidly rising in popularity due in part to its free, membership-based model and exceptional customer service. Hotel Engine distinguishes itself in an ever-growing travel aggregator market by offering exclusive access to wholesale hotel rates, up to 60% off public prices – everything from budget-friendly inns to luxury retreats – with no change fees and free cancellations at thousands of properties.
“As we continue to add new services and features to meet customer needs, expanding further internationally is a natural fit to provide travelers with even more options,” said Wallen.
Following its European expansion in fall 2016, Hotel Engine will broaden from 80,000 hotels to more than 600,000 hotels across six continents – a surge of almost 650% in selection in less than a year. The added inventory means more options and even better rates for travelers. Hotel Engine’s geographical amplification timeline is as follows:
- Caribbean & Central America – April 2017
- South America – Late Spring 2017
- Asia & Pacific – Summer 2017
- Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa – Fall/Winter 2017
