The least expensive reservation channel is your marketing website, which can be integrated with the RDP database to display rates and availability and complete the reservation process without any commissions to travel agents, GDS, or other third parties.

ihotelier

RDP has partnered with TravelClick to offer RDP customers a tremendous number of reservation channels.  RDP has a two way interface with TravelClick's iHotelier CRS to send rates and availability to the Global Distribution System (GDS) and load reservations from the GDS into the RDP system.  TravelClick recently purchased EZYield to add over 600 additional reservation channels not available on the GDS.  

 

  1. The RDP iHotelier 2-way Interface sends rates/availability from the RDP system to iHotelier. 
  2. iHotelier sends it to the traditional GDS, such travel agents and many Online Travel Agents (OTA).
  3. iHotelier sends rates and availability to EZYield, which forwards this information on to over 600 non-GDS channels.  For a complete list, go to: http://www.ezyield.com/fuzionlink/ and click “full list” on the right side of the page.

The RDP iHotelier Interface is also interfaced to EZYield. RDP customers no longer need separate interfaces for Expedia Direct Connect, Inntopia, or any of the other 600+ EZYield channels.  The iHotelier/EZYield interface sends rates and availability to:    

  • Traditional GDS (Travel Agents)
  • All “Retail” OTA’s connected to the traditional GDS
  • Expedia Merchant (Expedia at 25% or more and the hotel appears on the top of the list)
  • Inntopia
  • Over 600 other “non GDS” channels
  • Reservations from all channels automatically loaded into the RDP System.

Upgrade to RDPWin 3 and the Two-Way Interface

Customers using RDPWin Version 2 with a one-way interface should consider the following:

  • There are multiple 2-way interface vendors as shown above.  Research GDS providers products to determine the best fit for your property, and contact the vendors directly.
  • Contact the selected GDS provider to notify them of your using the RDPWin two-way interface and whether or not you will only be doing reservation retrieval. Some GDS providers require a change in contract when upgrading from a one-way to a two-way interface.
  • Once the GDS provider has been notified and contracts have been signed, the GDS provider's installation coordinator will contact the customer and RDP for scheduling of the installation.

 

System requirements for running a two-way interface are:

  • Current version of RDPWin3.
  • High speed internet connection.

For more information or pricing on Two-Way GDS interfaces, please contact RDP.
