|Hotel reservations for travel agents|
|How works the reservation for travel agents?|
|Travel agents need to register (see link below) and then send a copy of their agency business licence.
Once registered, agencies can access our Hotels and Tours portfolio in one of the following ways:
|Travel agents registration form|
|When can I start making reservations?|
|You can make your first reservation as soon as you have completed the on-line registration form, but in case you are not entitled to register as a travel agent your reservation will be cancelled and your payment lost.|
|Is my reservation confirmed or must I wait for a confirmation by the hotel?|
|Most hotels have rooms reserved and guaranteed for us and in this case the booking is confirmed at once without reconfirmation.
If the reservation requires confirmation by the hotel, 24 hours time, it is indicated when you are booking.
|May I book hotels worlwide or only in Italy?|
|The agent reservation system guarantee net rates and commissions for Italy Hotels only and worldwide for those hotels that are managed directly by us.
In order to book worldwide hotels you can access for free the provided GDS reservation systems, but we cannot pay commissions for these reservations.
The rates of GDS hotels are end-user rates and agents have to collect commissions or service fee from the customer.
