A new fairer, better search, find, compare and booking engine for hotels has opened. Treovi, a totally free hotel distribution channel, has just announced having opened their platform for guests to search and book hotels online. The Geneva, Switzerland development, has been designed to simplify and economize the room booking process for hotels and their guests.
The world’s first 100% no-commission hotel reservation system, Treovi is committed to the promise; “We’ll charge absolutely no commissions or listing fees for hoteliers, and no transaction costs, of any kind, for hotel guests.”
In less than 30 days, since the initial launch announcement, some 1500 plus hotels have listed their inventory on Treovi. This is an impressive number for such a short timeframe. Guests can now compare up hotels at their chosen destinations, and then confidently pick the best possible choice. In answer to the question; “How will Treovi make money then?” Co-Founder Michal Wrobel offered this on how the innovative startup will get revenue without charging fees:
““These products and services are ready to be introduced however they can be introduced only depending on how fast Treovi grows, and scales the market both on reservations and hotel registrations levels. We have a set of ideas for other products, but those we want hoteliers to comment and collaborate on in the future, as we want to provide comprehensive solutions that will really suit their needs.”“
Gone are those days when hotel owners were forced to raise their prices to compensate for paying high commissions to OTAs. Treovi is free for all hotels, be they independent or chains, and more importantly, to the guests that support those hotels with their patronage. Treovi doesn’t charge guests even the smallest credit card processing fees, let alone other commissions. Guest just “book it” and rest assured they are in direct connect with their chosen hotel. Here are some key features of Treovi:
• The public beta launch opens Treovi for client bookings (previously, Treovi was only open for hotels to register upload their inventory)
• Treovi doesn’t charge any commissions from hotels or customers - it’s 100% free for everyone
• Treovi is the first free hotel search and booking engine opened to both independent hotels and hotel chains
Now in open beta startup mode, Treovi is a significantly simplified variant of the coming versions. With continual guest and hotel feedback as the prime mover of development, the Swiss startup will ramp up many key features in the coming two months. Hoteliers and travelers can already benefit from a straightforward UI that enables hotels and guests to use the system. Best of all, absolutely free of any charge of any kind.
Founded early 2012 and launched in July, Treovi is a Switzerland travel startup that provides hoteliers and guests with a 100% no-commission booking channel online. This bright new concept in online travel booking will lead the way to a new era of simplified travel.
