Available to all members free-of-charge, Travellers Choice's TC One
platform provides an all-in-one interface through which agents and their customers can search and book rates at close to two million properties. The rooms – delivered via feeds from more than 84 bed banks around the world, including Above & Beyond, Expedia and Booking.com – are in many instances priced well below that of major online aggregators.
The hotel program provides direct negotiated pre- and post-paid rates, with agents receiving US$1 cash back for selected post-paid room night bookings, and an extra AU$5 cash back for every completed pre-paid hotel booking for a limited time.
TC One also now offers Travellers Choice independent agents access to rates at more than 24,000 car rental locations worldwide, along with 345,000 attractions and activities, and in excess of 3,000 transfers at airports, stations and ports.
The expanded content and sales incentives further enhance a platform that also provides an omni-channel presence through a powerful B2C booking engine for their agency websites, as well as exclusive social media marketing and lead generation solutions.
Managing Director Christian Hunter says that as independent agents navigate the post-COVID travel environment, the control, flexibility and efficiencies TC One provides are more valuable than ever.
“It goes without saying that independent travel agents of all sizes need technology solutions that enable them to book a comprehensive suite of products, at prices that will not be beaten and with 24/7 access,” says Hunter.
“TC One does precisely that, while also providing scalable marketing support, generating sales leads and powering agency websites.
“The integration of all of these features into one simple platform is what makes TC One such an important tool in helping our members stay ahead of a complex trading environment in which customers’ needs are continually evolving.”
