OTA Contract Rates: What OTA Contract Rate Programs Does BookingCenter Interface (Connect) With?
Posted by Jeff Tweddale on 09 Jan 2008 05:06 PM

OTA (Online Travel Agent) Contract Rate programs are direct contracts between your property and a mass internet travel agent such as, Hotwire, Expedia, and Priceline, as well as dozens of others.  This direct contract enables you to build a personal relationship with some of the biggest OTAs and your property no matter how prominent or quaint in your particular market.  These direct contracts operate outside the GDS (Global Distribution System) and will enable more flexibility with the descriptions/images of your property as well as more detailed guest information communicated back to you.  

BookingCenter offers the XML interface (connection) between your BookingCenter software and the OTA.  Using the BookingCenter interface enables the OTA and your BookingCenter management tool to speak the same language, therefore enabling your information to flow seamlessly between the two programs.  Your rooms, rates, availability, and length of stay restriction is sent to the OTA dozens of times a day.  This interface has been so successful for a majority of our properties that we are now suggesting this product no matter what property you are, where you are located, what your current business is.  It is one of our top distribution tools we can offer our customers.  

Currently BookingCenter interfaces with, Expedia, Hotwire, Priceline, and countless others.
