Bookings: How do customers make bookings over the Internet?
Posted by Jesse Chieppa on 08 Jul 2008 12:33 PM

Customers will come to you from one of four places:

  1. New bookings will come through your property's marketing efforts. Visitors to your website will click a 'Book It' or 'Check Availability' button to make and confirm their booking. We enable your website visitors to view and book available inventory at your pricing.
  2. Visitors booking travel from a major web portal such as Expedia, Orbitz, Yahoo!, AOL, Excite, Travelocity, Orbitz, TravelWeb, PlaceToStay.com and 8,200+ others (for a partial list, click here) will find rooms based upon the search mechanism of the Partner site. If you list your rates and inventory with these major sites, your property will be booked by customers who would have never found you otherwise.
  3. Travel Agents who use any of the GDS (Global Distribution Systems) will book directly with you
  4. Visitors to www.BookingCenter.com will find your property via the partner sites we maintain with other BookingCenter properties and Local Distribution System providers. Some of these travel entrepreneurs will want to include you in their sites - with your permission, of course:-)
