Charlottesville, Virginia (August 29, 2016) – Regatta Travel Solutions announced today that VISIT Lake Geneva has selected Regatta Travel Solutions to power the booking engine on their official destination website, VisitLakeGeneva.com. Regatta will allow visitors to the destination website to easily book hotels and Bed and Breakfasts, and Vacation Rentals on the destination’s official website.
“Before we had even launched the booking engine, the Regatta team had come out twice to visit in person with our hoteliers,” said Darien Schaefer, President and CEO of VISIT Lake Geneva. “They literally go door to door with people who speak the hoteliers’ language to get buy-in and support for the project. Regatta has approached this project with the right model, the right attitude, and the right team to make it a success.”
“Destination Marketing Organization websites have the ability to compete with Expedia and Booking.com, plain and simple,” said Ashwin Kamlani, Founder of Regatta Travel Solutions. “It’s a beautiful thing when all the hoteliers in a destination realize that their official destination website can play a role in decreasing their dependency on Online Travel Agencies, and they just never realized it before. Our technology and digital marketing tactics give suppliers in any destination a new opportunity to effectively attract new customers without having to pay any commission whatsoever.”
Regatta Travel Solutions now powers the booking engines for more than 45 DMOs worldwide. The Company’s booking engine technology is so advanced, that is it even used by major hotel chains to power their own websites.
