Superbreak Launches Same Day Web Booking Option18 March 2010
Superbreak has launched a facility for agents to make any hotel only booking up to and including the date of travel on its agents website (www.superbreak.com/agents). Previously bookings could be made up to the day before travel, with bookings on the day needing to be made via the operator’s call centre. A benefit will be for agents in tourist towns as this new enhancement means it will be possible to book overnights for tourist arriving into a city without accommodation sorted for that night.
Ian Mounser, sales director at Superbreak comments “This service enhancement is particularly helpful to agents for our sector, given our very short lead times profile. I would encourage all agents to make their customers aware, either through their windows or in their mailings. It has a variety of benefits, one obviously being for agents in tourism cities such as London, Edinburgh, York or Oxford, where many arriving tourists may not have secured their accommodation. The fact that our website is able to convert a high proportion of enquiries helps to illustrate the strength of our availability.’’
The enhancement has been live for three weeks and to date, over 50% of all same day bookings from agents are now being made via the website.
