JacTravel has launched a newly designed hotel booking site for the travel trade, offering more than 7,000 hotels in more than 550 cities worldwide.

The site features improved navigation and searches, easy booking amendments, the option to manage the mark-up to bookings and increased user security.

The company reports that in the first two weeks since it went live, the value of business increased by 127% over the same period last year and the number of bookings increased 78%.

Users have the option to view hotel search results on a map or as a listing organised by property name or price. Further filtering can be done by star rating, room amenities and hotel facilities.

There is also an option to view a condensed listing with name and price alone.  New administration features also make it easier for agents to apply an additional mark-up to bookings and to manage permissions for their staff, improving site security.
