How Agent-Key works...
Agent-Key travel portal reservation software is designed for travel portal websites and inbound tour operators selling accommodation over the Internet.
The concept is that guests pay you, the travel website operator, either a deposit or the full amount due. If you wish guests to pay hotels and other accommodation-providers direct, please refer to our Portalkey reservation software product.

- visit your website and explore your property information pages
- explore the accommodation choices on your website, using Agent-Key's 'Search Availability Form' or referring to your own website pages
- find their preferred accommodation and click 'Book Now' (or 'Check Availiability', or similar) to link into the Agent-Key system
