Superior Tools to Drive Greater Revenues
Our partner hotels can yield rates and availability in real time to sell individual rooms and opaque inventory through the aRes Travel hotel booking engines' dynamic packages, extended stay specials, hot deals, single use credit card for net rate payment, reservation call center exclusives and hotel chain-wide agreements.
Powerful Hotel Booking Engine & Extranet
aRes Travel boasts an innovative and robust platform to power the aRes Travel Network - the aRes Travel Extranet. Our platform can dynamically bundle hotel stays with services from many other travel categories. This effortless system allows our hotel partners the ability to distribute inventory through the entire aRes Travel Network of thousands of websites. Use of the aRes Travel Extranet also enables hotel properties to manage inventory, rates, cut off dates and minimum night stays. The platform is compatible with leading channel management tools.
The aRes Travel Extranet is available for independent hotels to use as their website’s booking engine. We provide the necessary tools to manage a website for the fraction of the cost of comparable systems. Our platform saves our hotel partners money by avoiding costs associated with web development and hosting services and exorbitant transaction fees by paying a flat quarterly rate instead of a per reservation fee.
Hands-On Marketing Support
While our competitors offer little in the way of marketing, aRes assigns our partners a dedicated Account Manager who works tirelessly to increase their bookings. An aRes exclusive.
Our first-rate Account Managers meet directly with you to determine your distressed dates - whether they are days of the week, months of the year, or specific seasons. They then put their years of industry knowledge to use to develop and implement marketing strategies that sell your excess inventory when you need it sold.
The aRes Travel Deals Wizard - A Revenue Manager’s Dream
An industry leading technology, our Deals Wizard has the capability to create fences and encourage bookings when your hotel needs it most. Partners can create custom promotions to drive customers to deals, configured based upon a percentage or dollar discount. Free stays can be set up based upon a minimum night stay (i.e. “Stay X nights and get your X night FREE!”).
The Deals Wizard program allows hotels to separate themselves from the competition by setting date specific promotions in advance over need periods, while providing a compelling and actionable offer. These deals are highlighted online and given additional exposure throughout the aRes Travel Network.
Even branded hotels that don’t allow for online discounting can take advantage by setting up deals as value added stays with services or products included without a charge.
