kers.com). HotelClub HotelClub is a global hotel booking Website offering members a worldwide selection of hotel properties across approximately 140 countries. Through its loyalty program, HotelClub Rewards, members earn rewards of up to 7% of the value of every booking made, which can then be redeemed on future hotel bookings. The company operates two Websites, HotelClub.com and RatesToGo.com, and offers services in 35 currencies and 17 languages, including Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Thai, among others. HotelClub also offers its customers the ability to book via mobile devices through an iPhone and iPad App. In addition to its customer-facing brands and services, the company generates revenue through other sources, including Orbitz Partner Network and Partner Marketing. Orbitz Partner Network The company offers third parties, including major airlines, travel agencies and financial institutions, and various partners globally, a range of private label travel solutions, ranging from hosted HTML services that can be launched in a matter of weeks to custom developed solutions that are fully tailored to meet the needs of more complex partners. The company licenses its technology and business services to these partners, who are then able to provide a range of travel products on their Websites under their own brands. The company receives commissions based on the revenue generated by their Websites. The company pursues the expansion of its private label channel through the addition of new partners. In 2012, the company launched a partnership with American Express to provide various private label solutions for air, car, hotel and vacation packages for the American Express Consumer Travel Network. In 2013, the company began powering the desktop and mobile sites for helloworld.com, the travel agent network in Australia. Partner Marketing The Partner Marketing team is responsible for building online marketing and advertising partnerships across its global portfolio of consumer and business travel brands. The company generates advertising revenue by providing its partners access to its customer base through a combination of display advertising, performance-based advertising, video production and other marketing programs. Travel companies, convention and visitor bureaus, credit card partners, media, packaged goods and other non-travel advertisers advertise on its Websites. Global Distribution Systems Certain of the company’s businesses utilize GDS services provided by Galileo, Worldspan (both units of Travelport) and Amadeus IT Group (Amadeus). In February 2014, Orbitz announced that it had entered into new multi-year Global distribution systems service agreements with Amadeus, Sabre Inc. and Travelport for the provision of technology and travel management solutions. Merchant and Retail Models The company generates revenue primarily from the booking of travel products and services on its Websites. It provides customers the ability to book travel products and services on both a standalone basis and as part of a vacation package, primarily through its merchant and retail business models. Merchant Model: The company’s merchant model provides customers the ability to book air travel, hotels, car rentals, destination services and vacation packages. It generates revenue for its services based on the difference between the total amount the customer pays for the travel product and the negotiated net rate plus estimated taxes that the supplier charges the company for that product. Retail Model: The company’s retail model provides customers the ability to book air travel, hotels, car rentals and cruises. Air transactions comprise the majority of its retail bookings. Seasonality The company’s businesses experience seasonal fluctuations in the demand for the products and services it offers. The majority of the company’s customers book leisure travel rather than business travel. The company’s seasonality may also be affected by fluctuations in the travel products its suppliers make a
