KAYAK Renews and Expands Partnership with AVUXI to Power Its Location Insights

AVUXI’s TopPlace™ Location Products Help Millions of Travelers Make the Right Booking Decisions

Berlin, Germany and London, UK – April 9, 2018 – AVUXI, creator of the TopPlace™ location insights, has expanded its presence on KAYAK, the world’s leading travel search engine, with a renewed two-year deal. KAYAK, which searches hundreds of other travel sites to give people the information they need to make their travel plans, will now display new TopPlace™ insights and location scores in its hotel search.

The partnership will expand to other brands like momondo and Mundi, while continuing to provide KAYAK users with verified location information and new brief summaries, so that travelers can easily, and confidently, choose the right hotel, in the best location, for the best price.

By integrating TopPlace location scores and heat maps, KAYAK displays detailed location insights for hotels, based on social media signals from travellers and locals across the globe. The heat maps and location scores help KAYAK users identify the most suitable areas in a city and how well a hotel or apartment is located for activities such as eating, shopping, sightseeing or nightlife.

This kind of information is crucial to quickly understand an essential criteria like location, when booking any given hotel, so that travelers can save time, stay on site and book confidently,” says Alexis Batlle, CEO and Co-Founder of AVUXI.
