Dublin-based budget accommodation giant Hostelworld is making its first foray into providing flight search facilities by partnering with metasearch site Skyscanner.
The white label deal between the pair sees a Skyscanner search widget included in a dedicated flight channel on the Hostelworld site.
Users have identical search parameters on the site as available on the existing Skyscanner service, although they are redirected to the Skyscanner site to view results rather than staying on Hostelworld.
Details of the agreement - length of the deal, business model - have not be released but white labels are still seen as a useful way of spreading a service into different corners of the web, including travel and non-travel sites.
Other budget accommodation sites, such as Hostelbookers, have yet to include flights as another user channel on their sites.
