German National Tourist Office UK and Ireland launches new Online Booking Information Tool


The German National Tourist Office UK and Ireland (GNTO) is launching a new consumer online booking facility on its homepage OBIT (Online Booking Information Tool). OBIT enables website visitors to book a complete holiday, short break, accommodation or simply their transport, to Germany.

Adding the booking tool elevates the GNTO’s website to a one-stop shop; it combines inspirational and factual information with this easy and convenient means of booking accommodation, flights, rail travel and car hire. Partners include Deutsche Bahn, Skyscanner, Interhome and AVIS Car Rental, with more options envisaged for the future.

As 84% of UK trips to Germany are booked online – higher than the total percentage of all UK online travel bookings (81% in total) – will be the main portal for anyone interested in travel to Germany.

“OBIT is an exciting development for travel destination Deutschland” says Beatrix Haun, GNTO’s Director UK & Ireland, “It enables us to meet travellers’ needs in a digital world and provide all the information they need from one source”. OBIT goes live from 9th October
