Ctrip, China’s largest online travel agent and the second largest in the world, today announced that Ctrip Gourmet List, an industry leader in POI information and a leading domestic China sharing and discovery platform for restaurants, has formed a partnership with OpenTable, the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations and part of The Priceline Group.

The partnership with OpenTable will allow Ctrip mobile app users to book tens of thousands of restaurants across North America. A premier OpenTable partner, Ctrip is also the first OpenTable partner in the Mainland Chinese market.

Ctrip Gourmet List was introduced in 2016 to provide travelers with easy-to-access food and restaurant recommendations and convenient on-line table booking in major cities around the world. Currently, Gourmet List covers approximately 15,000 restaurants in 120 popular destinations both in China and around the world. Ctrip Gourmet List has seen triple-digit growth since its launch and continues to rapidly expand the number of restaurants and destinations on its platform.

OpenTable seats more than 24 million diners per month via online reservations across more than 43,000 restaurants around the globe. Available in six languages, OpenTable has bookable restaurants in more than 20 countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, United Kingdom and the United States. In the third quarter of 2017, 57% of OpenTable’s global seated diners originated on a mobile device.

North America is an increasingly popular destination for Chinese travelers. According to Ctrip’s data, Chinese visitors to North America in 2017 spent on average 16,000 RMB per person. Both the US and Canada were included on Ctrip’s 2017 Top 20 Popular Country list, with three US cities in the top ten for long-haul trips, and Canada seeing over 60% growth year-on-year.

Mr. Kimi Liu, CEO of Ctrip Gourmet List, said, “Ctrip’s partnership with OpenTable is more about just food – the table brings together local culture, communities, lifestyle and travel. This partnership will improve the quality of Ctrip’s travel services and help to provide the growing number of Chinese outbound tourists with a richer and more efficient one-stop travel experience.”

“We’re very excited that Ctrip users travelling to North America now have an easy way to discover and book the perfect table whether they’re looking for a last minute reservation near their hotel or seeking a world class fine dining experience,” said Scott Jampol, SVP of Marketing, OpenTable.
