InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has entered into an agreement with Expedia and Hotels.com adding more than 3,700 hotels to the online booking agents' websites.
The multi-year agreement, which starts with immediate effect, includes InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites.
IHG senior vice-president of distribution marketing Eric Pearson said: "IHG continually seeks to extend the reach of our brands to deliver our customers additional convenience in booking their accommodations and this agreement will greatly benefit our guests."
IHG recently unveiled details of an ambitious three-year $1b (£489m) global overhaul of its Holiday Inn brand. The initiative will include the launch of a new logo along with investment in customer service, lobby areas, bedrooms and bathrooms.
