An increasing percentage of all travel reservations are made via popular travel websites such as Expedia®, Travelocity®, and Orbitz®. The RezOvation Booking Engine provides exposure to these and many other travel portals via the Global Distribution System (GDS). Travel agents also use the GDS to check availability and make online reservations for their clients.
The RezOvation Booking Engine provides real-time Internet reservation management and maximum exposure to the Global Distribution System via all the major GDS channels, including Amadeus, Galileo (also known as Apollo), Sabre, Worldspan, and Pegasus. Participating businesses gain valuable marketing exposure and have complete control of unit availability, unit rate yield options, and key property information and policies.
The RezOvation Booking Engine provides a one-way interface to the Global Distribution interface with RezOvation GT and RezOvation Desktop. The GDS interface automates all uploads of unit availability, and automatically downloads any new reservations booked on the GDS system.
All GDS commission fees are collected after guests stay at your property. All reservations cancelled through the same channel that they were made are not subject to any cancellation fees.
Note that the GDS is separate from the BedandBreakfast.com Online Reservations program, which also links to Expedia, Hotels.com and (in mid 2010) Travelocity. Many innkeepers choose to use both GDS and BedandBreakfast.com Online Reservations, as both programs offer benefits and can help drive more guests to your website.
