Travel Tripper is Certified as a TripConnect™ Premium Partner by TripAdvisor
February 3, 2015 8:19am
NEW YORK, February 3, 2015 - Travel Tripper, one of the industry's most innovative providers of hotel reservation solutions, today announced its certification as a Premium Partner with TripConnect™, a platform created by TripAdvisor that helps independent hotels drive more direct bookings by showcasing rates and availability directly on the hotel's TripAdvisor page. As a Premium Partner, Travel Tripper's hotel clients will be able to take advantage of TripAdvisor's Instant Booking feature that allows travelers to book direct reservations with hotels without leaving the TripAdvisor site.
"TripConnect's certified connectivity partners allow even small and independent hotels to benefit from TripAdvisor Hotel Price Comparison. With more than 315 million visitors to the site monthly, TripConnect is an efficient and effective way for hotels to generate more direct business," says Maud Larpent, Director of Direct Connect Development at TripAdvisor.
TripConnect's integration with RezTrip, Travel Tripper's booking engine and central reservation system (CRS), allows hotels to dynamically display real-time rates and availability on its own TripAdvisor listing page. Travelers can then click a link to a hotel's website to book or use the Instant Booking feature. Through Instant Booking, hotels pay a commission fee only after the guest has completed their stay. Though bookings are generated on the TripAdvisor site, the hotel itself remains the merchant of record, which allows for the hotel to take advantage of pre-arrival marketing, a critical period before the reservation where hotels can promote upgrades and ancillary services to future guests.
RezTrip's powerful pricing capabilities also allow for hotels to specify special offers and rates specifically for the TripConnect channel. The CRS admin panel also provides comprehensive tracking for hotels to monitor its TripConnect campaigns.
"RezTrip's integration with TripConnect opens up new opportunities for our hotels, particularly with Instant Booking," says Gautam Lulla, President of Travel Tripper. "TripAdvisor is one the world's top sites for travel research and planning, and we are excited to partner with them to provide unique access for hotels to generate even more direct bookings."
