Digital Trip signs new reseller agreement with Revelex
With the number of holidaymakers choosing to take a cruise rising by 1.5 per cent, award-winning travel technology experts Digital Trip are giving travel businesses the opportunity to gain a competitive advantage in the cruise sector and increase profits on bookings by 50 per cent using its new fully integrated cruise platform.
“Travel agents would be mad to ignore how much profit they can make from selling the latest cruise deals, but many agents feel their website isn’t sophisticated enough to compete for this type of business against larger dominant competitors,” says Andy Speight, Digital Trip’s Managing Director. “Using our new cruise booking technology, small and medium travel enterprises can level the playing field and operate online with all the sophistication of a big operator – but at a fraction of the cost.”
Digital Trip’s partnership with US-based Revelex, which has a strong foundation in the cruise sector, means that travel businesses can be connected directly to over 35 major cruise lines. These include CCS UK brands: Cunard, Carnival Cruises, Princess Cruises & P&O Cruises, Disney Cruise Line, Fred Olsen Cruise Line, Avalon Waterways, Viking River Cruises, RSSC, Oceania Cruises, MSC, Costa Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line and all the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line brands.
“January to March is the most profitable time to sell cruises, so agents need to review their business strategy and consider adding cruises to their holiday portfolio in 2015. Digital Trip is the perfect fit for us and we’re proud that our partnership with Digital Trip will enable smaller agencies to take advantage of the highly profitable cruise sector,” adds Alice Jones, UK sales director and analyst at Revelex Corporation.
Travel companies utilising the new cruise platform will be able to offer their customers the most comprehensive selection of fully bookable cruise options available and inspire them with beautiful imagery, engaging copy, reviews, videos and more. Live pricing is available for the majority of cruise ships and cabins in multiple currencies for the local market and agents can customise cruise feeds to pull web and private fares and then search and book multiple cruise products in real-time, applying mark-ups and discounts with the easy to use tools.
The new cruise platform integrates seamlessly into Digital Trip’s existing portfolio of travel technology modules, offering customers a fully integrated platform that works across all channels. Cruise bookings will be hosted and managed by Revelex, while Digital Trip will process all payments. The benefit for customers is that the front end will never change, offering a seamless experience.
