Direct Travel Agency Bookings
The Videcom online booking portal inlcudes a mature Travel Agents Portal that provides access to your airline system through a modular booking engine. Integrated into your airline corporate website the agents login into the system and have access to make new bookings with the forms of payment that you have permitted them, edit existing bookings that they have made in the past and check there sales reports and credit limts.
Before a travel agent can log into the system the airline has to set the up as a user which provides you with the control over which functions they are permitted to use, access to any specially negotiated fares, the credit limit that you set at an approriate level and the forms of payment you want them to use.
Reduced Distribution Costs to Travel Agents
By giving travel agents direct access to your system you can avoid the costly distribution fees of GDS system and other networks of distribution. The solutions is simple - the travel agent makes a direct booking straight from your inventory and you invoice them directly which avoids both GDS and BSP fees. Of course for those travel agents you don't know you can still accept GDS bookings and have a mixture of distribution channels to maximize your sales.
Manage the Relationship with Your Travel Agent
By having a direct relationship with selected travel agents you can manage the sales process with promotions, specially negotiated fares and agreed credit limits for different agents. Maximize your revenues by promoting your airline within targeted regions with incentives for sales targets.
