Paris, September 19, 2011

FastBooking unveils exciting new features for hoteliers and their customers in the industry-leading FastBooking Engine. The FastBooking Engine is already recognized for supplying the highest conversion rates. Now, flexible offer displays–a world-wide exclusive to FastBooking Engine Lux, the next generation interface–let users toggle between ‘Display by’ based on price or room type. This improves purchasing decisions without changing the existing booking flow to maintain high conversion rates.

FastBooking, one of the world’s leading online solutions providers for the hospitality industry, announces general availability of the recently released FastBooking Engine Lux. This new front end enhances customers’ online booking experience and offers new options to better fit the hotelier’s needs, in particular those of the luxury hotel market.

The same proven technology with a contemporary design

FastBooking Engine Lux is built on the same robust, high performance online booking technology as the company’s time-tested FastBooking Engine Classic.

  • 30 languages and 62 currencies for users to select from when making their reservations.
  • Four step booking process.
  • Multiple rooms bookings for separate dates at the same time.
  • Industry record conversion rate.
  • Lightening speed display of rates and availabilities.
  • Advanced reporting tools to keep track of your Key Performance Indicators.
Particularly attractive for luxury properties

The contemporary, clean design gives FastBooking Engine Lux a modern look and feel. The interface offers greater branding flexibility, a feature particularly attractive for luxury hotels for which the visual aspects of the booking funnel must be in strict alignment with the hotel’s image. Information is attractive, easier to understand and easier to navigate. Clear room and rate descriptions mean faster decision making for website visitors and increased conversion for hoteliers.
