FASTBOOKING & Smart ehotels: Relax, we make GDS easy for you!

Home Newsfeed Events FASTBOOKING & Smart ehotels: Relax, we make GDS easy for you!

 

To enable hoteliers to leverage on GDS sales opportunities, FASTBOOKING has partnered with Smart ehotels to help independently owned hotels and small hotel chains maximize their visibility and gain time and resources by outsourcing the management of the RFP process to Smart ehotels.

Since 2004, Smart ehotels has focused on boosting the visibility of negotiated rates via GDS channels. Thanks to Smart ehotel partnerships with over 500 Global Corporations, Travel Agency Consortia, and TMCs (including American Express, Carlson WagonLit, HRG,and BCD travel), independent hotels and small hotel groups can develop and increase their bookings from GDS. FASTBOOKING hotels using the GDS care solution saw reservations increase an average of 19% between 2015 and 2016.

Working with a dedicated team of Fortune 500 global corporations and all TMCs/Consortia leads to a notably increased response rate on RFPs and improves hotels’ international presence.

Thanks to the GDS Care programs offered by Smart ehotels in partnership with FASTBOOKING, hoteliers can outsource part of, or the entire, RFP process to reach more corporate travellers worldwide without developing specific skills or a dedicated internal organisation.
