Room-Res debuts two game-changing agent booking tools

Room-Res.com, the hotel booking site made exclusively for travel agents to help them find and book the best value hotel rates in the market, has officially become the best friend of the industry with the introduction of its two latest tools designed to making hotel bookings even easier and more effective for agents.

Room-Res, which just seems to get better and better, has recently added two more brand spanking new features to its platform.

These tools haven’t simply been created on a whim, but are the ideas requested from agents who the platform is for. The wholesaler has promised to continue to bring agents the tools they request. Imagine that, you decide what features you need next?

The latest allows agents to lock in the best rates as soon as they see them – and so allows agents more flexibility in curating client quotes

Hold & Pay Later enables agents to, quite literally, hold a room and pay later, once their client has made their mind up, taking the pressure off clients and bringing control back into the hands of agents.

When agents use Hold & Pay Later it means they can reserve a room for up to 72 hours, and the best part is; the room rate won’t be affected by any price changes. It also guarantees your planned margin with a promise the room won’t sell out as you and your client potter through the final details.

Next up, and equally as important to retail agents, is Room-res.com’s Itinerary Builder which enables agents to book multi-stay Itineraries.

This means agents are able to place multiple properties on one booking, maybe as part of a longer trip, rather than individually booking each hotel with the added bonus allowing just one payment for every room, all at the same time.

Combining these two new developments means agents can Hold Itineraries, giving them time to finalise the details of their itinerary and know you have secured that room and rate for up to 72 hours when they are quoting.

‘Stop talking and show us how to use these tools!’ we hear you scream.

Well, read about both the Hold & Pay Later and Itinerary Booking features here. In addition Room-Res are proud to be fully ATAS accredited, which also means your bookings with us are covered by the AFTA Insolvency Chargeback Scheme (AICS).

Happy booking folks!
