How it currently works:
No Relationship between you and the hotel
Since the supplier connects to the hotel, so even when you give bookings to a particular hotel, it’s the supplier who’s building a relationship with the hotel.
The supplier will get all the benefits from the hotel, not the travel agent.
Contact Suppliers all Day.
When travel agents have a booking request they need to contact their supplier to find hotels and to get good rates. So the travel agent will be on the phone all day.
Higher Rates to you
The supplier will always have their own commissionable models which will vary due to many factors. So lots of times you’ll end up paying extra to the supplier instead of
getting the optimal rate from the hotel. This will drive up the selling cost, leading to lesser bookings.
How Property Connect works:
Direct Relationship with Hotels
Travel agents and hotels can directly negotiate rates. A hotel will know when the travel agent is generating more business for them and thus the travel agent will get more benefits from the direct relationship.
See everything on your system
When travel agents have a booking request, they can directly book a hotel on the previously negotiated rates without making any call. They can negotiate rates and book rooms directly on their systems.
Best Possible Rates with No middle Commissions
The travel agent will have a special rate without the commission of the supplier in the middle. So the agent can offer better rates to the end customer resulting in more bookings.
