Breakaway, the long-established Irish tour operator, has just launched a new hotel-booking website for Irish travel agents that will offer more than 100,000 hotels worldwide. The site promises best value accommodation or inclusive weekend breaks, and in real time.
The search function is by price, location, hotel facilities, and star rating. All rates are net to the agent and the site is trade only. It incorporates a useful manage my booking facility that allows a search function for past and existing bookings. This means an agent can self-cancel bookings previously made by their agency.
Options include self-branding and an option whereby agents can offer the customer supplier failure cover at a cost of only €2 per booking.
Payment is made via a direct debit system. Further information from Alan Neenan at Breakaway.
