Once upon a time Before the dawn of the information super highway, brick-and-mortar travel agencies were the key to booking travel arrangements and finding deals on airfare. These agencies helped travelers plan trips and book flights, hotel and car rental reservations, and other travel necessities. But as the Internet started to dominate all areas of commerce, travelers began to turn to online travel agencies instead of the brick-and-mortars. These "virtual" agencies offered all the travel planning options and discounts conventional travel agencies offered without requiring travelers to leave their home. No longer did travelers need to make appointments and meet face-to-face with a travel agent just to make travel arrangements. There was now a convenient online solution to booking travel arrangements and finding discounts on airfare. Reality Check
online travel agencies

haven't completely decimated the conventional brick-and-mortar shops. Traditional travel agencies still do a great deal of business with travelers and are one viable solution to booking travel arrangements. However, as busy as our lives can be, online travel agencies do offer a quick and convenient solution to finding airline tickets without taking you away from home, or even work and the brick-and-mortar shops realize this. Some conventional agencies are also hitting the web and establishing travel websites to cater to those individuals looking to quickly search for and book flights. So even though online travel agencies haven't completely decimated the conventional travel agency industry, they have established a viable and convenient alternative to booking vacations, business trips, and other travel plans. Life Still Exists in the Brick-and-Mortars Conventional travel agencies still command a large portion of the travel booking industry. Their face-to-face service is what keeps them in business and, depending on the needs of the traveler, a more realistic solution to booking travel arrangements. When you book your travel plans through a brick-and-mortar travel agency, you're working with real people and if you're a frequent traveler, it's nice to have a "favored agent" to turn to for travel information and advice. With an online travel agency, you're simply interacting with a virtual interface that allows you to search for and book your own travel plans without ever speaking with a live person. Many people prefer face-to-face interaction and would never even dream about using a travel website to book their travel plans. There is still something to be said about personal service and the conventional travel agencies are capitalizing on it by offering personalized services and conveniences to travelers.

So Where do We Go from Here? As you can see, there are benefits and disadvantage to both conventional and online travel agencies. Each one offers its own experience and features that make it unique from the other and in favor with different people. When it comes to selecting the best option for you, you merely need to ask yourself "What am I looking for in a travel agency?" The best way to answer this question is to check out a few online travel agencies, compare them to some brick-and-mortars, and see which ones have the savings, products, and The
advantages are convenience (you can do it from your home), no travel agent fees to pay, online specials, and you have plenty of choices in choosing your itinerary/accomodations services you

desire Make the most of the worlds greatest direct-to-customer medium. The Internet, the greatest direct-to-customer medium has thrown up incredible new possibilities for the hospitality industry. Over 20% of hotel inventories were bought on the net last year, of which 70% was in direct-to-customer sales. This generated revenue of over US $ 14 billion, promptly giving birth to a whole new distribution channel. What's more, the significant reduction in selling and communication costs is driving the profitability numbers up. Today, in the highly competitive hospitality industry, you just cannot afford to ignore the demand for direct access to your room inventory. Not just from your industry sales partners but from your direct customers as well. With the power of the internet, you can now put your room inventory on their desktops at a fraction of the cost of reaching them through conventional means. Just why is an Internet Reservation System so hot? Reservations made over the Internet, cut your operating cost, attract affluent customers and reduce your dependency on traditional channels which are expensive. You can provide your customers with faster, easier and guaranteed access to your inventory 24 X 7, enhance your brand visibility, cut through the lethargy of intermediary channels and build customer loyalty through direct interaction. But I already have a reservations page on my website. Sure, having a reservations page on the website is fine. But can it guarantee a closed sale? Only when the customer is sure that he is being offered a room at a displayed price with all the amenities on the date or dates he has requested and has paid for it in real time do we consider it as a reservation. Most online hotel reservation systems cannot deliver this. ResAvenue comes with a comprehensive real time internet inventory manager and booking engine pre-integrated into a multi-currency, free sub-merchant account, multipayment options, payment gateway, so you can close the sale instantly. And the money is as good as in the bank. And since the customer pays upfront, he feels satisfied because there is a sense of closure to the transaction and he logs out knowing that he does not have to scout for any more hotel sites and has had a first hand experience of your high standards of service right at his desktop. The goodwill you reap from this direct access is immeasurable. So, just what is holding you back? Does the facility cost a lot of money? Youve probably heard that adding an eCommerce component to your business is an exercise that involves high entry costs, integration of complicated software components, and maintenance of huge hardware infrastructure, technical staff and complicated

logistics. And the return on investment appears at a place well beyond the horizon. Thats all true, but only if you want to handle the entire operation yourself. The smart thing to do is to let someone else manage it for you. Try ResAvenue. With ResAvenue, you do not have to make major changes in your IT infrastructure; the entire operation is hosted and maintained for you by us on a 24X7 basis within the overall subscription charges. Plus the amazingly low set-up cost comes without any hidden charges and helps you achieve your online sales targets in no time at all. Your time to market by integrating ResAvenue with your existing branded website takes place within 24 hours. We manage the infrastructure with 100% efficiency and give you the flexibility of pricing and managing your own online room sales inventory. Is it very complicated to run? Not so. We have made it all easy for you. We have created a world class internet based reservation system with an online multi-currency payment gateway built-in which has a complete bouquet of payment options including all major credit cards, 19 internet banking options, cash card* and mobile payment* options. The interface is so userfriendly that it empowers you to operate effectively, efficiently and economically from Day One of the implementation. Due to the highly intuitive nature of the system, your staff can run the system within a few hours without any formal training. *These options are available for Indian guests only. How does it work at the customers end? The ResAvenue hotel reservation software enables hotels and other accommodationproviders to accept instant real-time reservations. Guests visit your hotel website pages, look at your room descriptions, images etc. When they decide to book a room, they click on the reservation link (it is advised to keep one on every page) shown as Reserve Now or Check Availability. The reservation link takes guest to the ResAvenue hotel reservation system (the URL address can be hidden so that your own domain name is still displayed and the ResAvenue pages have the exact look of your website pages, so that the customer doesnt realize that they have moved on to the ResAvenue hotel reservation system. The reservation screens are user friendly and the guests can easily view rates and room descriptions in nearly 10 major international languages. Your guests enter their chosen dates and available rooms are displayed. They choose a room or rooms and then enter their credit card details to pay either the full amount or a room night deposit as specified by your business policy. Your guests see a confirmation screen and receive an auto-generated email from you confirming their reservation. You receive an auto-generated email, fax, SMS from ResAvenue summarizing the reservation. The process is that simple. How much control do I have to manage my inventory? You have complete control to enter and modify room description, rates and allocations all accessible 24 hours a day from any PC with an internet connection. Its easy to increase your room allocations or to close out dates which are fully booked. If you have a smaller property, you can choose to manage all guest reservations through the ResAvenue M.A.R.S. (Merchant Accounting and Reporting System) back office, updating booking and payment status as and when you require. Just like a mini-Front Office System. You can feature password-protected wholesale contract rates, allowing your Wholesale

Clients / Agents / your other Sales offices to make instant reservations from your website at the contract rates. You can do the same for your Corporate Clients also. You can also collect valuable information that could help market your property better. Guest email addresses are stored in the database and can easily be retrieved for mailshots. You can view statistics such as how many people have checked availability, how many have booked, total room nights actually booked and the total revenue generated. All in all, the ResAvenue reservation system offers immense opportunities to improve your business by making the most of your presence on the internet. This looks fine for a big hotel chain, but will ResAvenue work for my property? The ResAvenue online hotel reservation software is perfect for any property selling accommodation over the Internet. It works equally well for a small guest house as it does for an international hotel chain. ResAvenue enables guests to check availability directly from your website or from the hotel page or any other third party pages. The challenge for any hotel today is how to increase the visibility and reach of their property at as low a cost as possible. The multi-lingual, multi-currency, multi-payment options nature of the ResAvenue reservation system empowers your global customers to complete the transaction without language, denomination or geographic barriers, The ResAvenue reservation system offers you a unique opportunity by enabling you to compete with any hotel property with a distinct advantage.

What is my return on Investment? What investment? ResAvenue has no set up fees or high integration costs. For most standard or first class hotels the cost of implementing ResAvenue on their website (US$ 99/- per month or lesser) is less than one room night worth in costs. For a modest 50 room hotel which has 1500 room nights available for sale every month ResAvenue would cost a minute 0.00066% of its value every month. Of course there is also a 5% / 7% transaction fee per sale, which includes all fees charged by the credit or debit card proc ulti-lingual, Multi-currency Solution to Sell Globally Gain worldwide visibility and enhance true brand value.
