Real Time Availability
Time is money and ReserveDirect is prepared to give travel agents more of both. Utilizing our real time booking system, agents can view actual availability of a variety of products such as lodging, theater shows, attractions and recreational activities within a given destination. This enables the agent to quote and secure these travel products instantly without any delays or waiting for confirmation. Travel suppliers interact directly with ReserveDirect to provide inventory for their products only when they are available.
ReserveDirect believes that while a travel professional is providing a valuable service to their clients, they are truly a sales person for our products. That’s why product pricing is commission inclusive throughout all our destination sites. Pricing can be freely shared with the customer, eliminating the concern that you are exposing your earnings or charging a higher than standard price.
Packaged travel typically means “packaged pricing.” While this is a customary practice in selling destination travel, ReserveDirect has broken the mold to allow agents the ability customize all their packages to the specific needs of the client in an easy to use, traditional online shopping cart. Select specific travel dates, lodging choices and activities in a matter of minutes to get customized quotes in real time. This allows the agent to offer more choices to the clients rather than a handful of preformed options.
Selling a destination is always easier when the destination sells itself. ReserveDirect works with each destination to provide regional travel publications for registered travel agents. These handy guides assist agents with selling the destination. Our travel planners are full of valuable information for each destination, as well as a complete listing of all the travel products available for travel agent packaging.
Travel Agent Referrals
Registering with ReserveDirect is easy and can be done on any one of ReserveDirect’s destination websites. Once registered, your account and login will be activated on all destinations. Also when you register, your agency will be listed in our travel agent referral database where travelers who visit our websites can enter a zip code to find a local travel agent in their neighborhood.
Earn Extra Commission
As an added incentive, ReserveDirect offers travel agents the ability to earn extra commission during the sale by adding the purchase of a cancellation/change waiver. Agents will be providing their customers protection when the unexpected occurs, while earning extra income. Beyond the commission on a package an agent has directly sold, ReserveDirect also offers affiliate commissions for any reservations generated from a travel agent website, allowing for unlimited earning potential through the web.
