When you pick the right hotel – one that’s perfectly matched to the needs of your clients, something magical happens. I know, because I’ve just returned from 10 days in a beautiful resort near Krabi, Thailand. It was picture-postcard perfect. Much to the envy of friends and colleagues!
But making that perfect match by finding the right hotel for leisure and business clients can be quite a challenge for travel agents. That’s because there are so many options: so many rates, so many hotel aggregators, and so many booking sites. It can be time-consuming for travel agents to locate the right room at the right price – until now.
I’m delighted to tell you that Amadeus is now working in partnership with Totalstay, bringing you a portfolio of 175,000 hotel properties globally. This agreement gives travel professionals more choice and enables them to offer greater value. Best of all, these hotels are available to travel sellers via our user-friendly Amadeus Hotels Plus and Amadeus Web Services for developers.
How can you benefit?
To me, this is a real win-win scenario. Hoteliers now more than ever need to increase their distribution channels in order to extend their customer reach. And thanks to our continuous investment in shopping and booking applications, travel agents can enjoy seamless access to the best content in a fast, easy-to-use hotel booking platform. Amadeus Hotels Plus enables agents to compare hotel aggregator and GDS rates side-by-side in a single display that automatically passes data across to the back office system, saving time and money.
What is especially popular about Totalstay is how their discounted rates cater to every kind of budget. Increasingly we hear how business travellers are also looking for the best deals in the market, and having access to such competitive rates helps agents sell with confidence. Totalstay also enables agents to capture last minute bookings made on the day of arrival, offering even more ways to grow revenues.
This is just the beginning. I was talking to Peter Davies, UK and Ireland Regional Head of Sales at JacTravel and he explained that their inventory of 175,000 hotels is growing in leaps and bounds. It includes 12,000 independent directly contracted properties and direct connections with 15,000 of the leading global chain hotels worldwide. Importantly, it’s not just a great product offering competitive rates and real time availability but there is also dedicated 24/7 support centres for added peace of mind.
The integration has been several months in the planning and a successful pilot period was recently completed. So why not take advantage of Totalstay’s generous commissions (or net rates if preferred) on all properties in more than 10,000 destinations worldwide?
