The extranet, aptly named JacExtra.net, is a place where hotels can list their rooms for sale on line all over the world via JacTravel’s range of distribution channels to the travel trade.

In addition to a new look and feel, the new extranet offers hotels greater flexibility in the way they offer rooms for sale, more detailed management information and compatibility with all major browsers, such as Internet Explorer 9, Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

New features include the ability to:

  • Update and adjust rates, availability and release periods over specified date ranges and day-by-day
  • Upload special offers
  • Post ‘early bird’ deals defined by booking date, travel date or lead time
  • Open and close ‘freesale’ to maximise sales when rooms are available
  • Monitor upcoming arrivals and check booking details

Angela Skelly, Director of Online said: “While we know that the main benefit to hotels of working with a wholesaler such as JacTravel is substantially increased distribution and exposure to serious customers they could not otherwise reach, that is not enough. We want to be a distributor hotels choose to work with because they enjoy doing so. Therefore, our aim with this initiative is to make the lives of our hotel partners as easy as possible and this new look and functionality is designed with that sole objective in mind.”
