Our story

HotelRunner was founded in 2011 by two colleagues and former managers from IBM. During their endless business travels, and enterprise projects, they realized a certain need and a gap in the industry. The majority of the accommodations in the world were offline and the travel tech market was incredibly fragmented. Thus, the vision of HotelRunner that has echoed to this day has been shaped: bringing the travel industry together and creating a bigger travel economy.

The journey that started in a small flat with a core team has now turned into an acknowledged success story with 100+ team members in 5 cities and 3 countries. We have been recognized as a Booking.com Premier Connectivity Partner, Expedia Elite Connectivity Partner, Airbnb Software Partner, Agoda Innovative Supplier, Oracle Gold, Hotelbeds, and Google Hotel Ads strategic partner. Today, we work with 60,000+ accommodation partners of all types and 150+ travel agencies and hospitality industry partners from 193 countries and revolutionizing travel technologies.
