A new hotel-only booking engine for travel agents is being launched this week by flight and long-haul travel specialist The Holiday Team.
As with The Holiday Team’s flights, hotels will be offered at net rates allowing agents the flexibility to set their own commission.
The company says that after a successful trial the hotel product will be available through The Holiday Team’s easy-to-use booking system.
Rajan Sawhney, sales director, The Holiday Team, said: “It’s a natural step for us to expand our offering to include hotels in all major long-haul destinations including Australia, the Far East, Dubai and the US. We’ve come up with an excellent product which has been thoroughly tested.
“We’ve gained a reputation for offering some of the lowest flight prices in the market, with good availability and a booking system which is straightforward to use. By launching the accommodation option we are moving the business forward and giving agents what they want. We want the trade to use us to book complete long-haul travel arrangements.”
The Holiday Team is owned by Southall Travel. More information about the business can be found at www.theholidayteam.co.uk
