Puerto Rico Signs Up for Regatta OTA Software
MIAMI (May 17th, 2011) – Regatta Travel Solutions is proud to announce that The Puerto Rico Hotel & Tourism Association will be the first to implement Regatta and create their own OTA for their destination. Hotels and activity providers in Puerto Rico will use Regatta OTA Software to provide rates to be sold on a new consumer facing website. Regatta will use aggressive online marketing tactics to generate reservations.
“We congratulate Puerto Rico for being the first to take this bold step,” said Ashwin Kamlani, President of Regatta Travel Solutions. “The PRHTA is about to become an example of how a hotel association can truly become an important source of revenue for their members.”
“Regatta is going to solve many of the challenges that we have faced for years,” said Clarisa Jimenez, President of PRHTA. “Now for the first time, hotels and activity providers will know that they are getting business from us and we will be in full control of how we market ourselves and attract more business for our members.”
Regatta will allow the PRHTA to be listed in TripAdvisor alongside the OTAs as an option for booking the hotels in Puerto Rico. It will also give the hotel association the flexibility to work with all suppliers in their destination to create destination-wide promotions and attract more business at lower commission levels.
