Accor’s new website has region’s first Chinese language booking engine(1)

5 September 2003

BANGKOK - Modelled on Accor Australia's pioneering website,, Accor's new website now features the best online 'Hot Deal' with a Chinese language booking engine, the first in Asia.

Accor Jin Jiang Distribution Co Ltd launched the first ever Chinese language booking engine on its new website,, targeting consumers in China's massive domestic travel market.

"By adding a Chinese language booking function Accor is indeed leading a distribution revolution in Asia. We are the only international hotel management group that offers such a comprehensive distribution package focused on the Chinese-language leisure and corporate travel markets, said Accor managing director Asia Pacific, Michael Issenberg.

The new site allows travellers to compare online rates at a range of Sofitel, Novotel, Mercure, Ibis and Century hotels around Asia.

Each hotel lists the best rate available online for each and every day (unless sold out) over a two month (60 day) period. The rates vary according to demand in a specific hotel or day, but the transparency allows travellers to organise their hotels stays when the best rates are available.

"Now available in Chinese and English, the website will soon add Japanese, Korean, Thai and Bahasa Indonesian to the booking engine in the coming months," said Issenberg.
