Time Design, a Dynamic Package Solution company, has announced its integration with Sabre Hospitality Solutions’ SynXis Central Reservations (CR).
The move will allow global travelers to combine their hotel reservations with airline tickets on the hotels’ official websites.
“Time Design’s Global Dynamic Package Solution combines real-time availability and prices of both accommodations and transportation (such as international airline tickets) and will allow global travelers to book both rooms and flights at the same time on the hotels’ official websites across mobile phones, tablets, or PCs,” the company said.
Travelers visiting a hotel’s official website with Time Design’s Global Dynamic Package Solution will be able to choose airline tickets from a wide variety of airline carriers (including Low Cost Carriers (LCCs)), by specifying the airline name, alliance, prices, departure and arrival times, flights routes, as well as other options – a significant step up for the industry.
“Travelers were only able to book hotels and airline tickets at the same time through a travel agent or Online Travel Agency (OTA) but with our solution, travelers are able to book both rooms and airline tickets from a hotel’s official website. This not only makes it easier for travelers to make reservations, it also lets hotels improve their service offering and reduce channel cost against OTAs,” said Yuzo Takamatsu, President CEO of Time Design.
“We believe hotels’ official websites offer the best deals nowadays and want to shift the existing distribution to hotels’ official websites by letting the hotels to have travel packages as their sales option,” he added.
