Leading Travel Industry Leaders form European COVID Travel Alliance

a??a??a??Launch of Travel Database Providing A Free Consolidated Data Source of Travel Restrictions for Travelers
DUSSELDORF, GERMANY a?? June 03, 2020 - The COVID-19 pandemic prompted wide-sweeping shutdowns across the world. Now, as parts of the world start to relax measures on travel and businesses, the travel industry is left looking across multiple sources to find accurate information on social and travel restrictions, leaving travelers with disparate information around what to expect when looking to book travel. To help with this, trivago N.V.A (NASDAQ:A TRVG) and (NASDAQ: BKNG) joined forces to form a COVID Travel Alliance, along with Barcelo Hotels, Eurowings, FlixMobility, Iberostar Hotels, KLM and Radisson Hotel Group, to launch a free database providing the travel industry with a single consolidated data source for travelers with all of the up-to date global news related to restrictions.a??a??The COVID Travel Database, a project to support the local tourism industry, provides accessible data free of charge, creating a resource for consumers and enabling travel institutions and companies to deliver the information to their users across their own products (websites, apps, etc.) regarding any given restrictions for a chosen destination. Information includes any relevant restrictions on entry, accommodations, and the level of open activities at the destination.a??We know people want to travel again, and we want to help them do it safely and armed with the information they need to make the right choices,a?? said Andrea Da??Amico, Managing Director for, EMEA. a??Ita??s important that the industry comes together to help support the global travel ecosystem emerge from this crisis, and we hope that by working together, this database will serve as a key resource to help Europeans travel safely.a??
a??a??a??Bringing back tourism requires trust, and in order for the industry to reopen safely and successfully, it is important that accurate information on the easing of restrictions is clear and easy to find,a?? said Axel Hefer, trivago Chief Executive Officer.A a??AsA destinations where businesses and attractions are opening, restrictions vary from country to country and even city to city. WeA are all in this together. A By working together, our intention is that the database helps support the travel industry as it moves through an unprecedented challenge and bring confidence to travelers looking for accurate information.a??a??A a??a??a??a??How it works
