How Globekey works for you ...
- Globekey will enable you to sell and manage your inventory at low cost via the Internet, increasing your occupancy rates and reducing your cost of sales.
- Globekey offers you a mini Central Reservations System, enabling you to take instant confirmed reservations at any of your properties, through a Call Centre or FreeFone Number.
- You will receive more confirmed reservations AND you close your website sales immediately.
- Your guests will receive instant confirmation of their reservation, without having to wait for you to answer their email request. This stops guests from shopping around for other hotels and accommodation providers.
- Your staff will no longer have the time-consuming job of replying to email requests.
- You will have a new marketing and distribution outlet thanks to Globekey's portal site (HotelsEasy) - commission is NOT payable on reservations.
- Your guests from overseas will be able to book in any of the foreign languages offered by Globekey (French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Dutch, Danish, Greek, Icelandic, Russian, Lithuanian, Turkish, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian, Korean, Thai).
- If you already have a booking engine on your website, and are paying commission on reservations, Globekey's fixed fee will save you money.
- You will be able to offer special packages and last minute rates on your hotel website, cutting out commission which you have to pay to third parties.
- Each of your hotels has a unique password to access reservations and update rates/availability for their own property. And your Corporate Office has a master password to view details for all hotels in your group, through one access screen.
- You can use our dynamic search form inviting guests to search for an available hotel in any or all your destinations.
- If a guest chooses a hotel without available rooms, an alternative available hotel in the same destination is automatically offered.
- Globekey offers you numerous reports enabling you to track revenue from your website. Reports can be viewed per hotel, or for all hotels in your group.
- You can maximise room yields by featuring rates on your website to match your occupancy levels.
- You can invite your Wholesale Travel Agents, Loyalty Club Members and Corporate Clients to book online through your website, at their password-protected contract rates.

Credit card processing - how Globekey handles guest credit card details...
- Guests enter their credit card details onto Globekey's secure server.
- You receive an auto-email when a guest books, inviting you to retrieve details from our password-protected secure server.
- You can then print credit card details and keep on file, or charge a deposit to the guest credit card, as per your booking policy. You need your own credit card merchant account.
- Credit card details are stored on the Globekey secure server for a maximum of 7 days, in line with international legislation. Guest credit card security is extremely important to us.
- We can also integrate Globekey with payment gateways, so that guest credit cards are authorised and cleared in real-time, directly into your merchant account (extra fees apply).
Globekey charges a low fixed monthly fee. Globekey adds your website design, with header and/or footer links, to the reservations screens.
PhoCusWright predict that the Internet will contribute over 27% of all hotel bookings by 2007.
