UniTravel releases new hotel reservation technology to help travel agents drive family vacation bookings.

01/10/2013

UniTravel, leading provider of hotel booking solutions, announces a new release of its reservation platform that will provide travel agents with advanced search tools to hit their targets and make the most of their business.

UniTravel has launched a new version of its booking platform for travel agents. The leading operator in the hospitality industry has empowered its technology to offer the most comprehensive and efficient hotel search and reservation process.

The new tool involves the advance research procedure by giving the possibility to search properties by specifying different parameters and, above all, the age of customers’ children. This important feature will be useful for travel agents to find the exact solution to accommodate families at a more convenient price, without needing to find alternative solutions that do not consider their ages (for instance, rooms for families that enclose one or more child free in parents’ room).

“Our new features”, affirms Luca Fenzo, Managing Director at UniTravel, “empower agents during the sales process to perform comprehensive hotel searches and offer customers competitive rates. Furthermore, thanks to multiple search options and crossing the different search parameters like number of guests per room and for multiple rooms and specifying children’s age, the system will be capable to provide them with the most exact result possible that a booking service can offer and at a perfect price.

Additional filters in the hotel result page like services provided by the hotel, price per night and destination area help focus on what they really need. And with no surprises: the final price is what customer will really pay, according to what they set for their search.

UniTravel is committed to become the perfect technology partner for travel agents. With over 80,000 properties all over the world, UniTravel has one of the largest hotel database in the travel industry and the most competitive rates”.
