Isango and Easytobook unite with tours and activities deal

Tapping into the growing buzz around search and booking of tours and activities, European hotel site Easytobook and Isango have signed a product partnership this week.

The deal sees the 10,000 tours and activities on the Isango system made available for visitors to Easytobook, the Switzerland-based hotel, B&B and hostel site.

The pair say the deal is aimed at the growing European city break marketplace in Europe with low cost carriers connecting almost every destination across the continent from the major hubs and, more significantly, the potential for high-speed rail to open up other cities by train.

Integration on the Easytobook site will include a system that places relevant destination products from Isango depending on the need of the customer – families will be served children-based products whereas couples will get their own type of suggestions.

The partnership has been in testing since February 2011 and will eventually be deployed site-wide from May 2011.

Isango has had white label agreements with a number of sites over the years since it launched in 2006, not least with Ryanair for a brief period.

Isango European VP Daniele Beccari says the Easytobook design is “clean and simple, marking a change from other sites cluttered with bells and whistles”.

    Got it – then what does 10,000 ‘services’ mean? Your website still says 5,000. I saw Viator increase their number recently in press statements – presumably through their new OurExplorer hookup, but seems to be that suddenly everyone is inflating the number of offerings – and not on a consistent basis!

    Hi guys,

    the original PR we released mentions 10.000 services, not activities.

    Wow ! “10,000 tours and activities”? I am curious where this comes from. There website says:

    # Choose from over 5000 cultural, active, fun or relaxing activities in 60 countries

    …right on the front page.

    I think I see some competition going on with the number of products. Can this be real, or is it based on the perceived threat of Viator (always much larger) and GetYourGuide (growing faster and perhaps surpassing isango??)

    WHO knows the truth?
