Mews adds Expedia Group to its collection of direct OTA integrations

The free integration provides real-time inventory and price updates between Expedia and Mews Operations. 

[1 November 2023]: Mews, the industry-leading hospitality cloud, has released a bespoke integration to Expedia Group that allows properties to connect the leading Online Travel Agencies (OTA) directly to Mews PMS.

The direct connection automatically updates prices, restrictions and availability in Expedia Group whenever changes are made in Mews Operations. This real-time link reduces the risk of over-bookings, decreases sales discrepancies and can reduce the cost of ownership of a hotel’s tech stack. 

This follows other direct OTA connections to Mews, including booking.com – which recently recognized Mews as a Premier Connectivity Partner – and dayuse.com, where hotels can increase their revenue by offering daytime reservations.  

Mews also offers a direct connection to Google Hotel Search, which allows hotels to display their live rates via Google, encouraging more direct bookings. Learn more about the Google Hotel Search connection in this webinar. 

“OTAs like Expedia Group are important distribution tools for hoteliers, and the Mews team has worked hard to build this direct connection,” said Matt Welle, Mews CEO. “Expedia Group is one of the two biggest reservation sources for Mews customers, and this integration will empower properties to better manage their inventory, consolidate tech stacks, and boost profit margins." 

Although the latest integration will help hoteliers across the world, it is of particular importance in the United States, where Expedia Group is a heavily favored booking channel.
