Online travel portal reservation software
Agent-Key reservations software will instantly benefit any travel website promoting hotels, resorts, apartments, villas, condos, guest houses, etc. Agent-Key provides an immediate and cost-effective online booking engine.
Agent-Key is designed for Travel Website Operators and Inbound Tour Operators who process reservations and collect payment from guests, either a deposit or the full amount due.
Your guests will enjoy the convenience of a one-stop availability check, instant purchase and auto-generated email confirmation. Your sale is closed immediately without time-consuming emails and faxes between guests and your reservations staff.
As an Agent-Key user, you have 'central control' over rates and availability at all properties entered into your Agent-Key database. You contract rates, and preferably inventory, with the properties featured on your website. You can choose to give any property an Agent-Key link to update their own availability.
You have a choice of two business models:
Wholesale travel agent model
You contract net rates, add your profit margin and feature selling rates on your website. Guests prepay you in full for their reservation. You issue a voucher to the guest, and a voucher to the property booked. Properties invoice you at agreed contract rates after guest has checked out.
Commission based model
You contract commissionable rates, or invite properties to enter their own commissionable rates into Agent-Key. Guests pay you a 10% deposit at time of booking (e.g. your commission) and pay the balance due directly to the property booked upon check out.
We also lease Globekey, online hotel reservation software designed for hotels, resorts, apartments, guest-houses, motels, villas, bed and breakfasts, etc.
