Travel Intelligence has signed a deal with hiphotels.com to fulfill their online hotel reservations. This follows similar deals with Times Online, Travel Supermarket and mrandmrssmith.com.

Travel Intelligence has developed a booking engine, known as Starfish, which can be fully integrated into the design of partners' websites to ensure a seamless booking process. Starfish has the most comprehensive database of lifestyle hotels worldwide.

Marin Muyser, managing director Starfish said: "We offer websites access to our unique hotel database combined with a flexible solution for online reservations. We provide a range of bespoke services including hotel contracting and branded customer services. We also offer partner sites the ability to show special offers and packages, that are exclusive to their website."

Herbert Ypma, founder of Hip Hotels, said: "Hiphotels.com is a logical extension of the groundbreaking book series. For the first time, all the hotels featured in fourteen titles are in one place and the addition of a booking function provided by Starfish, means that visitors to our site have the convenience of being able to book online. The strength of our unique content is thus enhanced by Starfish`s proven experience in handling electronic reservations."
