Worldchoice Launches Honeycomb Dynamic Package and Cruise Booking System

Worldchoice has just launched Honeycomb, its new free technology platform, which includes flights, accommodation, transfers and cruises, all bookable in any combination. Honeycomb is only available in Ireland to Worldchoice members.

Cruise lines featured include RCCL, MSC, Complete Cruise Solutions (P&O, Cunard, Princess, Costa Cruises), and NCL. More suppliers will be added in the coming months.

Honeycomb benefits include:

  • Live availability with all suppliers
  • No account set up required with business partners
  • Margin adjustable on an individual booking basis
  • Ability to simultaneously search multiple providers
  • Creation of a customer travel plan
  • Nett and published airfares available
  • Supplier payment via Worldchoice’s central payment system
  • Free to use

Garry Zancanaro, General Manager of Worldchoice Ireland, said: “We are delighted to make the Honeycomb booking engine available to Worldchoice Ireland members. Honeycomb is extremely easy to use and offers great flexibility. You can book cruise only, or include transfers, flights or hotels, compare multiple suppliers at the same time, and set different margins for each booking.

“It also allows our members to easily book a wide selection of suppliers, even last-minute bookings, without having to worry about payment, as this is taken care of and guaranteed via ACAS, the Worldchoice central payment system.

“Another benefit for Irish members is being able to directly book the Complete Cruise Solutions lines, which were previously only possible by agents putting a bond or bank guarantee in place.

“A massive amount of research and development has gone into this project and Worldchoice UK members have been using Honeycomb for a couple of months now. The feedback has been extremely positive and we are confident that Worldchoice Ireland members will also find this dynamic packaging solution invaluable. Having such a powerful tool free of charge really is the icing on the cake!”
