The company counts 35,000 hotels as customers across more than 160 countries, with 80 per cent of its revenue coming from offshore. It processes 87 million hotel reservations a year, equating to $38 billion worth of hotel, Airbnb or bed and breakfast stays.

The next chapter for the business involves building out its ecosystem of partners, which include the likes of European budget airline Ryanair. This partnership allows European hotels to sell directly on Ryanair Rooms, which gives hotel guests 10 per cent of the hotel booking price back in flight credits.
