Rezdy’s Global Marketplace and Channel Manager are now fully connected to RocketRez. Tours and attractions on RocketRez can now quickly and seamlessly scale their distribution.
On average, 30%-40% of travel bookings come from B2B partner businesses. Distribution is a useful and powerful way to grow your business. There are thousands of travel resellers who can send customers that may not have otherwise been reachable. Reseller businesses like:
- Online Travel Agencies (OTAs),
- Travel Affiliates,
- Inbound Tour Operators,
- Traditional Travel Agents,
- Travel Wholesalers,
- Receptive Operators,
- Destination Management Companies (DMCs),
- Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) and much more
More tickets sold sounds good in theory, but there is a problem! These added sales come with some pain. Firstly, each partner needs a contract. Second, operators need to compile product images, descriptions, and details. (Sometimes resellers request unique products only sold on their sites.) And, once operators do go live, if they are not connected to that reseller, customers will most likely arrive "unannounced" with a voucher of some sort.
That's only half the fun...
Now that the operator has the voucher and has delivered a great experience for the customer, it's time to get paid. Reconciling with each reseller partner typically isn't done in the same way. Some resellers require copies of vouchers as proof the customers arrived, other resellers require an excel spreadsheet of all of the voucher numbers collected in a month's time, attached to an invoice. After all of that is said and done, the operator will get paid, if it all matches.
Being connected through Rezdy's channel manager and marketplace alleviates 95% of those outdated and time-eating processes.
That's why we partnered with Rezdy. Rezdy is a platform that offers two services that make distribution immensely easier.
If an operator already has direct contracts with reseller partners like Expedia, Klook, etc. they will still keep those commercial arrangements. However, through the Rezdy/RocketRez integration, operators will gain much greater control and save a lot of time. Connectivity ensures live availability, real-time sales, and the ability to add or remove products/tours as needed.
Load your products, sign one contract, add a standard commission rate, then set it live. 1000s of travel buyers from around the world will instantly have real-time access to the loaded products. It would take an army of people to build, contract, and manage these relationships directly. Signing one contract gets quick access to them all.
