To make winning a little bit easier, and meet the surge in demand for last minute holiday bookings in December and January, allocations have been refreshed and expanded across key destination in Australia, Hawaii, Bali, Fiji, Singapore and Thailand.

Combined with the new last-minute availability feed from Priceline into ReadyRooms with discounts of up to 65 per cent, your bookings will practically be selling themselves.

“We’re seeing a lot of last-minute enquiry for popular destinations for December and January bookings and the good news is we have increased our allocations to meet the demand,” Qantas Holiday’s head of Wholesale sales, Steve Brady said.

“Along with our last-minute Priceline feed, we have all bases covered. And every new sale will count towards this incentive!”

The group of Wholesale brands recently released two key upgrades to ReadyRooms with an additional content feed sourced from Priceline, owner of Booking.com.

This new feed provides a dedicated inventory of discounted and distressed product with discounts of up to 65 per cent off full price and an average discount of 30 per cent.

The feed also provides a substantial range of additional hotels, additional inventory and additional rate types.

An advanced admin dashboard has also been released in ReadyRooms that gives managers more control.

The ability to Name Your Own Price (NYOP) is proving to be one of the most popular features in the system. With managers having the ability to set rules on how they manage NYOP at an agency level by setting a NYOP level or setting limits on the minimum or maximum NYOP allowed.

Managers also now have the ability to give access to consultants in their agency to see all bookings.
