Travelocity gets TravelCLICK shopping tool

TravelCLICK is signing a deal with Travelocity to allow RateVIEW, TravelCLICK’s hotel rate shopping tool to interface with the Travelocity system. This collaboration represents the first third-party rate monitoring implementation with Travelocity to deliver direct content for competitive analysis and reporting.

TravelCLICK’s partnership with Travelocity establishes the reliability of rate data from this important channel where other rate shopping products might be obtaining data through unsanctioned and less reliable methods.

RateVIEW reports offer information on rates and availability from more than 130 major travel websites, brand sites, and the GDS. Reports are based on user-defined criteria and are generated in the hotelier’s format of choice - including XML files that integrate with revenue management systems.

“We are excited to bring this enhanced capability to the global hotel industry with the support of a leader in travel commerce like Travelocity,” said Scott Farrell, Senior Vice President of Product Management at TravelCLICK. “This official ‘front door? access to critical decision support information provides the confidence and security that hotels need from a rate shopping solution.”
