The cooperation between Booking.com and the Grab platform added fuel to the global race for dominance in the tourism sector

first_imgThe race has started, and it is on this track that new news and “gamechanger” from Booking.com come to us. In any case, the gloves were thrown away, and the race for the huge tourist market began. But the most important thing, the biggest benefit at the end of the whole story, is to get the users themselves who will have a better user experience. The imperative of the mentioned companies is to become a kind of full service for passengers, ie to use as many additional services as possible through one application / service, which complement each other through one trip. From travel, accommodation, public transport, excursions, restaurants, attractions and tourist facilities… all under the slogan one profile, one platform and one unified service. Southeast Asia is visited by 130 million people a year TRIPADVISOR TRANSFORMATION: THE MOST SELLING EXPERIENCES Thus, users of Booking.com’s application will be able to access the services of the Grab platform in Singapore today, in Indonesia and Thailand before the end of the year, and in Cambodia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Vietnam and the Philippines in early 2020. The question everyone is asking is: Why stay only in the accommodation service, when we can use our power and large customer base and offer a much wider range of services to travelers. As a result, they all become direct competitors with each other and enter “someone else’s” yard. The gloves are thrown away. For the first time, the company is trying to offer on-demand transport, and with this move will connect international travelers visiting Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines with drivers through an application they already know and trust. It will also remove language and currency barriers that can deter many visitors from using the services of local carriers. By the way, Grab is the leading provider of on-demand transportation services in Asia (Asian “Uber”) and is also the owner of the most famous mobile application in Southeast Asia. Today, the Grab app has more than 152 million mobile downloads and gives users access to over 9 million drivers, retailers and resellers. Grab also has the largest number of land transport drivers in the region, and since its founding in 2012, it has recorded 3 billion trips. Grab also offers the widest selection of on-demand transportation services in the region, and also offers a range of food and package delivery services, in 336 cities in eight states. This initiative synergistically unites the strengths of the two leading companies in the field of technology and travel and marks the first collaboration of Grab with a global online brand in the field of travel from the west with the aim of creating a local experience. AIRBNB FOR NOW REFUSES TO PARTICIPATE IN A NEW ACCOMMODATION RENTAL PROGRAM WITHIN THE GOOGLE SEARCH Bryan Batista, CEO of Booking.com’s transportation department, said: “This time is exciting, people are discovering new ways to explore the world around them. Both we and Grab are pleased to push the boundaries by bringing together our unique strengths to provide added value and provide passengers with real, tangible benefits. Our mission is as simple as it is ambitious, we make it easy for everyone to explore the world. Guided by this, we will continue to test and develop innovative products. By providing our customers with intuitive technology solutions, we give them the freedom to explore, with more choice and personalization than ever before.” AIRBNB ABOLISHES GUESTS FEES TO MAKE MORE COMPETITIVE TO BOOKING It was only a matter of time before these technology giants and leaders in their sectors would use their power to embark on a much larger portion of the tourism pie that is growing year by year.

WiFi networks are already more or less ubiquitous in this region, and smartphone use is projected to triple before the end of 2021. Namely, booking.com, in cooperation with the Grab platform, is introducing an on-demand transport service, giving users of Booking.com’s application access to the largest selection of drivers in 8 Southeast Asian countries. The integration of transportation services, at the request of the Grab platform, into Booking.com’s application is part of a broader strategic partnership between Booking Holdings and Grab. Booking Holdings is investing in Grab, and Grab, in collaboration with Agoda and Booking.com, has introduced hotel reservations directly in its app. HOTELTONIGHT APPLICATION BECAME PART OF AIRBNB Southeast Asia is visited by 130 million people a year, and the collaboration between Booking.com and Grab will provide them with the tools they need to travel as locals, from cashless payments through apps in users’ currencies that are critical to tourists, driver safety. customer service in the language of the user and most importantly all-in-one service – accommodation booking and taxi services through one platform. In the past year, an intense and large global race has begun between Booking.com, TripAdvisor, Airbnb and Google, which have begun to expand the range of their travel services to their customers. Booking.com users can already pre-book taxis in more than 120 countries and rent vehicles in more than 160 countries. Also, although it is still a pilot project, they can purchase and use public transport tickets in six European and Australian cities via the Booking.com app. Collaboration of Booking.com and the Grab platform BOOKING.COM LAUNCHES INDEPENDENT RESERVATION AND ATTRACTIONS WITHOUT THE NEED FOR PREVIOUS HOTEL ROOM RESERVATION BOOKING.COM LAUNCHES BOOKINGSUITE APP STORE.

3-point explosion gives Syracuse blueprint for conference success

first_imgSitting in an orange, Syracuse-branded folding chair postgame with a bag of ice wrapped around each knee, Buddy Boeheim felt  the shooting performance that played out over the last two hours wasn’t unexpected.In the days ahead of Syracuse’s first game of the decade, Buddy noticed how Orange shooters — Elijah Hughes, Joe Girard III and himself — had clicked in practice. Their shots fell with ease, building off the blueprint established in nonconference play. On Saturday afternoon, after 14 3s kept the game close and the 15th brought it even closer, it was the Orange’s deep shooting that provided a glimmer.“I feel like tonight was a little bit like the Georgia Tech game,” sophomore guard Howard Washington said. “All our shots were falling.”For better or worse, Syracuse’s (8-6, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) conference play has been determined by its shooting prowess from deep. Before the contest Syracuse ranked 87th in 3-point offense per Kenpom (35.2%). Yet in conference play, they fell into the extremes. SU shooters failed miserably against Virginia (five for 29) and thrived against Georgia Tech (14 for 33). And, in a back-and-forth game of runs, the Orange almost beat Notre Dame (10-4, 1-2 ACC) the same way.Their shooting performance (48.4%) dazzled the crowd, but also presented a reality: Any hope of consistent ACC success will need more days like Saturday. But even then, as the 88-87 score in Notre Dame’s favor showed, it might not be enough.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We played just as well as we could offensively,” Boeheim said.The Orange’s first three was sprung by forward Marek Dolezaj. He set a screen in the high post allowing Buddy to rotate over. This sparked more offensive movement, as a few more similar plays led to the Irish focusing on the curling shooter instead of the screener. While interior passes sparked SU’s first run it was the 3 that was relied on most.Sometimes the quick passes around the perimeter and the emphasized spacing were too much. In one sequence, Bourama Sidibe and Hughes bumped into each other on the baseline, and a forced pass led to a turnover. Later in the frame, Hughes called for the ball near the scorer’s table, but an off-balance feed sent the ball rolling out of bounds. Heading into a timeout, Boeheim yelled at Hughes as the ball trickled by their feet.But other instances it was the deep ball that brought SU back into the game. After a thunderous block from freshman Quincy Guerrier, Hughes swished a 3 for his first make. Then in the halfcourt – Hughes drawing attention after a 10-3 personal run – the Orange ran a familiar three-man action with Hughes, Dolzeaj and Buddy. With the forward at the top of the offense, he’d trigger a pass to a posting player while the third leaked to the corner in front of Notre Dame bench.Buddy cashed one such 3, and again it opened up more action. After an SU offensive rebound, blue jerseys crashed to the corner while Dolezaj worked inside. The second half saw each side continue to shoot from deep. Notre Dame connected on 15 of its own 3s and four-straight possessions ended in open 3s from each side.And as dynamic as SU’s 3-point shooting was, it was still it’s only reliable option for offense. On a 3-on-1 fastbreak down the stretch after a failed Notre Dame alley-oop, Buddy missed an open Hughes and instead tossed the ball out of bounds. Hughes walked across halfcourt with his hands on his head.After Girard converted over Prentiss Hubb — who earned a technical after stepping over Girard minutes earlier — Girard threw his hands in the air to wave on the crowd. At times, Washington said postgame, coaches will push Girard to shoot more. He did on Saturday. The freshman who totaled 81 3s all season attempted nine against Notre Dame. And the confidence that followed each make spurred another attempt.When Hubb responded with 3, as he had for most of the game, Girard dribbled to the top of the arc, rose and cashed another. Hubb matched him on the other end, and Girard attempted another from deep, this one contested, that clanged off iron. Then forward John Mooney went inside, something SU can’t do consistently, and Notre Dame took a lead it wouldn’t relinquish.“Our guards are young,” Boeheim said. “They gonna make some mistakes but they’re getting better. They’re getting better.”In the game’s final second, Girard threw his last shot of the game toward the rim, the Orange down four. As the ball slipped through, Girard fell to the ground, two Irish defenders around him. The crowd, SU bench and players on the floor pleaded for a call to no avail. The final .4 seconds ticked down, deflating the crowd.The 3s were almost enough, but they weren’t. At least not this time.
