aRes Travel can help you grow your travel website, fill your hotel during distressed periods, or sell more tickets to your attraction. But don't take our word for it. Here's what our partners have to say about how working with aRes Travel has helped them reach goals for their hotel, attraction, destination, CVB, or travel website.

"Our partnership with aRes enables us to say “yes!” to our clients’ attendees when the contracted room block is sold out or after the cut-off date. Using aRes, Orchid has tracked thousands of additional room nights for our customers over the last few years. The set-up is always quick and easy, and the customer service we receive from aRes is exceptional! We know, without a doubt that we can rely on Devian and the aRes team for prompt and excellent customer service."

"For more than three years, the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show has worked with aRes Travel to customize hotel packages for our more than 250,000 annual guests. From design to implementation, working with the team at aRes Travel has been an unparalleled experience. Seamless online integration with our package partners and beyond has increased the number of bookings and elevated our offerings to our collective guests. Knowing that I am a true partner of aRes Travel rather than simply a client is a great comfort to me and their understanding of the hospitality and hotel industry is second to none."Michelle Ullman
Ticket Sales ManagerPHS Pennsylvania Horticultural Society
"ARES (Advanced Reservations Systems, Inc.) has been providing online ticketing solutions for Out of Africa Wildlife Park since 2011. They helped us extend our customer reach with a smooth and intuitive booking engine that has improved customer service and helped our bottom line. As we have added new attractions to our portfolio of services, they have been there every step of the way, providing assistance and support to accommodate our often-demanding needs.
The ARES customer service phone center has been a tremendous benefit to Out of Africa as well. Their 24/7 coverage allows our customers to reach a human at all hours. Being able to speak with a knowledgeable representative not only gives our customers a better experience when purchasing tickets, but it helps free up our staff by reducing phone calls into the park. It also provides us with a competitive edge over our competition that does not offer 24/7 access.
The ARES team we have worked with over the years have been nothing short of remarkable. They have been problem solvers throughout our partnership, turning our challenges into opportunities. And being available on a moment’s notice, even on weekends, shows a level of care and commitment not often seen.
When a working relationship feels more like a friendship, you truly have something special. As the marketing director of Out of Africa, I highly recommend ARES to anyone seeking a first-rate ticket reservations provider."

"aRes offered us some really good options when it comes to the customer – they allow you to be able to build your own package which was really important to us, because we want to give the customer the option. The level of service is amazing. The people are really awesome to work with, they're willing to do anything. I can pick up the phone and they make it happen. I've had the ability to work with quite a few people within the company and everybody has that same passion and drive for the product, and the knowledge – it's really great because they have the experience working in the hospitality industry."Heather Kessler
