The hotel booking platform all agents need

If you’re an agent, and you’re looking for a competitive advantage when booking hotels, this one’s for you.

We’ve heard a ton of buzz about Room-Res.com – they’ve got over 3000 Aussie agents signed up, after all – so we did a little more research.

While travellers may be looking for a variety of things on an itinerary, one thing they (almost) always need is a hotel. But sometimes, clients arrive in-store having found cheap online hotel deals that can be hard to beat.

Well, not anymore! This booking platform enables agents to find and book the best value hotel rates in the market – PLUS profitably win on price.

Room-res.com is a hotel booking site made specifically and exclusively for agents and gives you the ability to book hotel stays that deliver the best value for your client – while also giving you the best profile margin around.

Basically, the folks over at Room Res believe that travel agents are the most valuable and insightful source for booking travel experiences and products (and they aren’t wrong, TBH) and want to enhance your value.

The combination of their technology and your service skills (or algorithms and agents, as we like to call it) is a sure-fire way for you to seriously up your selling game.

This magic search platform helps you dynamically sort hotel room results to highlight the best hotels for agents to book for their customers – and it’s pretty damn good, as well as easy-to-use.

How easy-to-use, you ask? Super easy.

Simply enter in the country, city or area you want to stay in, the dates, and the number of rooms you need then Room Res will do the rest.

For any hotel shown in search results, you’ll see the most profitable way to book the hotel, either net or commissionable. But it’s not just one single net rate provider; in the background, the website’s uber-clever algorithms punch through a range of providers to bring you the best agent deals for the hotels with the best agent rates. Yeah, it’s that easy.

Oh, and because the sole reason Room-Res.com exists is to help agents, the info is super easy to both see and navigate. The site also presents a single view of various different rate types for rooms, so you can easily see how the best value stacks up – whether that’s free breakfast or a refundable room.

Which means you don’t have to fumble through complicated pages searching for the cheapest net rate or best value– and can quickly make a profitable recommendation to your client. Ta da!

And if you somehow have any problems using their super easy system? Unlike other online tech businesses, they have a dedicated customer service team, right at your fingertips. The Australian-based customer service team are the very best at understanding agent-specific challenges and if you call them, they’ll actually pick up the phone to talk to you.

So to have a massive advantage over the competition when booking hotels, head to Room-Res.com to check out over 300,000 properties!
