UK's Red Carnation adds inventory to TripAdvisor

In a sign of the times, UK's Red Carnation Hotel Collection is committing its hotel inventory to the TripAdvisor instant booking platform, making it reportedly the first UK hotel collection to integrate the new interface. The platform allows users to make a hotel booking through TripAdvisor’s hotel and online travel agency partners without leaving the TripAdvisor site.

Through the partnership, U.S. travelers on TripAdvisor are now able to book Red Carnation’s inventory of hotels directly  

TripAdvisor launched its instant booking platform in June 2014.
