The system includes a powerful Travel Agent/Wholesaler module.
Travel agents can make reservations by calling the property or your central reservation department directly. If you allow them access with a password, Travel Agents/Wholesalers can also make direct bookings into your system using RDP’s Internet Reservation Module (IRM). All IRM reservations are automatically loaded into the RDP database.
Various reports show total revenue generated by each agent on a daily, month-to-date and year-to-date basis, with comparisons to last year. Travel agents can pre-deduct their commission, or the system can print a commission check. Unique rates can be established for each travel agent or wholesaler. Additionally, room blocks can be allocated to specific wholesalers, varying each day of the year.
