Great Hotels Agents Network
This programme profiles your hotel for hundreds of niche tour operators and travel agents who otherwise would not have heard of your property. Hotels submit FIT rates and leisure group rates into our technology platform, which can then be accessed and booked by these specialist agents.
Website booking engine
Great Hotels of the World has developed a booking tool which allows guests to book directly on your own website. This booking engine, part of evolution's suite of e-commerce tools, is revolutionary in design, functionality and usability. Its unique design means that you can load special packages and promotional rates that appeal to leisure travellers. Guests also have the opportunity to book additional add-ons (such as chocolates on arrival, flowers, transfers) and activities (for example spa treatments, golf tee times or restaurant reservations) at the time of booking.
As well as connecting your hotel to the GDS, Great Hotels of the World will distribute your hotel's inventory to over 1,700 hotel booking websites such as Expedia, Travelocity, Lastminute, Orbitz, Opodo and many more thought the evolution Demand Manager. In addition we have created direct links to many of these websites to allow hotels to manage their net rates through one inventory source. This allows our hotels to receive a higher ranking in these sites than their competitors.
