Bed banks

A bed bank is a company that buys hotel rooms and travel services from suppliers and resells them to travel agencies, tour operators, and other travel companies.

Bed banks typically buy in large quantities and at wholesale prices, enabling them to resell at discounted rates. They act as a bridge between hotels looking to fill their rooms and travel companies seeking to offer competitive pricing to their customers. Hotels also benefit from exposure to numerous travel companies through the bed bank's network.
