Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India, 2015/05/18 - TravelCarma, a global travel technology provider has announced new features to its software for travel companies - TravelCarma.com.
Packages booking system with CRS
Allows Tour Operators to configure pre-defined packages in the inventory system. Tour Operators can setup their pre-defined packages with availability, schedule and rate details. It also allows tour operators to sell their static packages on the front end booking engine with online confirmation. It allows operators to configure details like itinerary of tour, available days, primary / secondary locations, inclusions, exclusions, terms and conditions etc.
TravelCarma's Tour Operator System (travelcarma.com) also allows the user to provide certain additional options wherein the tour operator can offer some special add-ons like different accommodation options, individual transfers, freebies etc. In a nutshell, this system can be a very useful option for package sales on their online portal.
Allows registered customers to create their own trip plans for themselves and share it with their companions via email, invite them to discuss the plan on the portal and make the bookings. The plan can be saved with a validity date and customer can book the same plan at a later date with real-time rates and availability checks. The module also allows the customer to manually enter the items that are not booked through the Portal, but are essential to the decision making.
Dynamic Quotation Builder
Allows Travel Agents to build and send complex, multi-product quotations in a matter of minutes. Agents/Employees can create custom tour packages with an option to add offline products. This would help travel agencies service a much higher volume of queries, reduce costs and increase their efficiency.
Map Based Search
This allows customers to view all directly contracted hotels on an interactive world map. When the user zooms-in, the search gets narrowed down and the hotels are pin-pointed on their exact locations on the map. On clicking the hotel in the map, the user would be directed to the hotel detail page where they can view the availability and rates of the hotel's rooms. In this visual search process, search results are displayed on a map, rather than traditional search, where the results are displayed as a list.
Book Now Pay Later
This unique feature allows customers to review and book travel products online but pay later in person or by credit. This enables travel businesses to give their customers the flavor of booking online with the convenience and service of offline.
