Peakwork-packaged train + hotel trips from bedfinder are now bookable at weekend.com

weekend.com, the weekend trips and short breaks specialist and part of trivago, now offers comprehensive train travel packages via the white-label tour operator, bedfinder. Peakwork technology packages Deutsche Bahn train connections with current hotel offers, so that the Hotelplan Group subsidiary, bedfinder, can display up-to-date packages when requested by customers via the weekend.com portal.

The new rail packages can be used to reach more than 150 destinations in Germany and neighboring countries, with all of Germany's railway stations - around 10,000 - available as departure points. The trips can be searched and booked seamlessly from the station closest to home to the station closest to the chosen hotel and back. Holiday packages include rail tickets, seat reservations and accommodation. In many cities, there is even the option to include a city ticket to use local public transport.

The hotel selection on weekend.com includes accommodation in attractive and central locations. For the first time, it is possible to carry out an open search from a departure station and view all possible destinations, including hotel offers and complete prices. A range of filters is available to meet the specific requirements of each individual customer. Improved comparison of offers and prices is facilitated by new forms of display, including a calendar display by departure date on the offer details page.

"The demand for domestic and local travel has increased significantly since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Offering travelers the opportunity to book weekend breaks from one single source, negating the need to sift through numerous sites for accommodation and transport separately was the logical next step for our product," said weekend.com founder and CEO, Tobias Boese.

Katja Altmann, CEO of bedfinder, confirmed: "Our new tour operator product, Train + Hotel, really hits the spot for travelers right now. Safe and environmentally conscious travel, tailor-made offers, and first-class booking technology - we are proud to be one of the first tour operators to bring this dynamic rail product to the market."

Manuel Saballus, VP Commercial at Peakwork, explained the technical innovation behind the Rail Package Player: "On weekend.com, the full power of Peakwork technology becomes visible: the immense number of offer combinations from Deutsche Bahn in the Peakwork caching technology combined with the components packaging from bedfinder; as well as, on weekend.com, a new user experience with enhanced filter options in the train travel area."

The booking routes can be seen on the weekend.com website.
