New B2B website
JacTravel, the UK-based wholesaler best known for its extensive range of online hotels in Europe, USA, Canada and Asia launched a newly designed hotel booking site for the travel trade, offering over 7,000 hotels in more than 550 cities worldwide. The site, www.jachotels.co.uk has improved navigation, several features to aid searching, easy amendment of existing bookings and the option, as a travel agent, to manage one’s own mark-up on bookings. Its launch represents the final stage in an upgrading and re-branding process that began in 2010.
Users have the option to view hotel search results on a map or as a listing organised by property name or price. Further filtering can be done by star rating, room amenities, hotel facilities and proximity to a station. There is also an option to view a condensed listing with name and price alone. New administration features make it easier for travel agents to choose commission rates and to manage permissions for their staff.
Mario Bodini, JacTravel’s Chief Executive, says: “Our new site will definitely improve the user experience, making the search and management of bookings faster, easier and more informative. However, what I expect agents to like best about the new site is the product. Owing to our strategy of focusing on a number of hand-picked properties, each strong in its niche, rather than a blanket listing of every hotel in a destination, we can provide trade buyers with great rates and guaranteed availability.”
The new site is compatible with all browsers; notably Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari and logins/passwords remain the same.
