Charlottesville, Virginia (January 6, 2016) – Regatta Travel Solutions announced today that it will begin to offer an Air + Hotel booking engine for both destination and hotel customers. This new combined booking capability is the result of Regatta’s recently formed partnership with LeisureLink, a leading provider of innovative travel distribution technology. Regatta’s booking engine currently powers many of the hotel associations and tourism boards throughout the Caribbean. This new capability is expected to open new doors in the region as well as in Mexico where combined air and hotel bookings are a priority for Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs).
Regatta’s booking engine now powers more than 45 destinations worldwide as well as major hotel groups like Palace Resorts and Grand Velas in Mexico. The company also serves a large cross section of independent hotels across Mexico and the Caribbean, as well as DMOs across the U.S. from Daytona Beach to Seattle.
“Our goal is to create a more cost effective sales channel than currently provided by the major OTAs,” said Ashwin Kamlani, Founder and CEO of Regatta Travel Solutions. “This new Air + Hotel booking capability enhances our already advanced platform and should provide an even better shopping experience for travel shoppers. This should translate into more guests at a lower net acquisition cost.”
“We are excited to expand our relationship with Regatta Travel Solutions and bring a new element to their DMO offering,” said Jim Barsch COO of LeisureLink. “We are confident that LeisureLink’s ability to address the hotel, vacation rental and villa markets, combined with air and activities will complement Regatta’s solution for any DMO to deliver transformational offerings.”
Regatta Travel Solutions is a sponsor of the 2016 Caribbean Marketplace in Paradise Island, Bahamas.
