Reservation Distribution Channels & 2-Way GDS Interfaces

The least expensive reservation channel is your marketing website, which can be integrated with the RDP’s commission free booking engine to display rates and availability and complete the reservation process.  (Internet Reservation Module – IRM).  We now offer the Mobile IRM, which is our booking engine formatted to work with SmartPhones and Tablets.

EZYieldLogo

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.r more information see: RDP iHotelier / TravelClick Two-Way Interface.

RDP’s interface works with both the Advertizing Model and the “Pay-Per-Reservation” model from HomeAway.  With the Advertizing model RDP sends all content to HomeAway, and reservations can then be made on RDP’s commission Free Internet Reservation Module.

GoogleHotelFinderLogo

MetaDirect

RDP has an interface with Jack Rabbit Systems, who allow your rates and availability to show on various “Meta Search” websites, such as Google Hotel Finder, Trip Advisor, and Trivago.  For example, in Google if you type “Hotel in Chicago”, Google automatically shows the Google Hotel Finder Screen, listing various Chicago area hotels, with rates and availability.   With RDP’s Jack Rabbit Meta-Direct interface, your property can appear in Google hotel finder.  The guest is sent from Google Hotel Finder to RDP’s commission free Internet Booking Module (IRM) to make the reservation, bypassing any fees you might have to pay to your GDS provider.

Meta-direct has become a very popular method of making reservations, with significant growth in the future.  RDP’s Jack Rabbit interface allows your property to share in this powerful channel.
