Traveltainment, the Amadeus Leisure Group, is a leading provider of multi-channel distribution platforms for travel services. We provide innovative software solutions for the travel industry, designed to make the booking of leisure travel easier and quicker.
Our internet booking engine TT-IBE celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. Since the market launch in 2003 the online distribution solution has ranked among the leading industry solutions in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland and this year ITB Berlin is the perfect time and place to present some features to further help our customers: a completely renewed search and booking technology.
With the help of the new hotel gallery in the regions list the classic booking steps – from the initial search, the selection of destination, hotel and date to the booking – can be accelerated. E.g. a portal can use pictures, reviews and further details to tease end customers to directly click on hotels in top-selling regions, thus consequently leading them to the booking form at an early stage. The PriceGrid which is integrated into the hotel list shortens the search process using the same principle. Here, the customer finds possible services and dates of all tour operators already in the hotel overview.
With bestseller based recommendations travel seekers are explicitly pointed to most frequently booked hotels in a region. These bestsellers can be promoted as a supplement to the normal results or as an alternative as soon as the parameters set by the end customer lead to a very restricted selection. Likewise the Trend Messenger informs internet users, who look at an individual hotel, how often this hotel is currently viewed and/or booked. In both cases the information about other online customers’ interest and user behaviour should have positive impacts on the booking behaviour.
The Suggest Box as web service is also newly available. It is a free entry field for the search for locations, hotel names, and sights. Already when typing in the first letters the customer gets respective search suggestions for the three categories as a result. The new version in the web service allows you to also integrate the Suggest Box on start pages or landing pages.
If you are in Berlin just pop in to our showroom at ITB and we will be happy to offer insights into the new world of features and search paths Traveltainment has to offer.
