Online accommodation-only firm HotelConnect.com is expanding its range of ‘secondary’ desinations following agent requests.

It has added 14 new destinations to its range, which now covers more than 2,500 properties.

Head of sales Emma McNamee said agent demand for less common destinations has led to its expanding its accommodation options in to less obvious tourism destinations.

Destinations added to the portfolio include Dallas, Houston, Avignon, Innsbruck, the Italian Riviera, Lausanne, Lucerne, Montreux, Oman, St Tropez and Zermatt.

“The market has come of age and it’s no longer just about offering beds to match up with low cost flight routes,” she said.

The new accommmodation will be added to the website by the end of March.
