Advantage Holidays is the latest addition to Advantage Travel Partnership’s fully-bonded ATOL solution, which joins Cruise & More in offering competitively-priced product exclusively for Advantage members.
Gateway2 is the new innovative solution, designed to not only enable members to improve efficiencies and dynamically package products themselves, but provides the platform from which they can now create tailor-made packages through Advantage Holidays, filling the product gaps they may not otherwise be able to package through current business partners.
Advantage Holidays offers its business travel members a full-service ATOL solution, which will provide the ability to tap further into their business travel customer bases and provide an easy-access solution to fulfil the corporate travel trips, which their business customers take.
Advantage Holidays has been made possible by the significant investment which Advantage has placed in creating its brand new Gateway2 booking platform.
Advantage Holidays, supported by Gateway2 is the new way for members to search, book and deliver fully-bonded holidays to their customers under a central ATOL.
This is the first of many developments which Advantage are making, through the Gateway2 booking engine, to provide solutions for our business travel members to fulfil their client’s leisure travel needs; with flexible holiday durations, flights from regional airports and over 200,000 hotels to choose from.
Advantage will be investing further with GDS connectivity and direct connects to further enhance the system for its member’s business travel needs.
Advantage is running a launch campaign to raise awareness and promote the benefits of Advantage Holidays to encourage Advantage members to commence booking Advantage Holidays for their business travel customers.
Members will be incentivised by way of a competition to get creative with their Advantage Holidays windmills with a number of prizes on offer. They will be asked to post a ‘creative’ picture or short video featuring their Advantage Holidays windmill.
Following a successful set of pilot groups, going forward, Advantage will be organising steering groups with the membership to ensure Advantage’s technology agenda continues to enhance and develop further for the members.
Managing Director, Julia Lo Bue-Said said: “We are delighted to report Advantage Holidays is in its final stages and is ready for members to use. Our focus now is ensuring our members are fully aware of the benefits and potential this new solution can provide them.”
“This engaging multi-channel campaign using social media and offline and online channels will leave members feeling motivated and inspired to commence booking Advantage Holidays and discover the benefits and possibilities of the solution for themselves.”
