Series booking automation solution
Travel agents can automate the whole of the series booking process, distribute series inventory worldwide via subagents in seconds with a unique PNR, and maximize revenue by applying personalized markups.
What is series booking?
A series booking is when a travel agent pre-purchases a group of seats on a recurring basis on the same flight. For instance, travel agents can reserve 20 seats on a flight from London to Madrid and back every Saturday for the entirety of the football season. The travel agent knows there will be a constant demand for those flights, and they don’t want the hassle of making individual bookings every time they get a request from a customer.
Why distributing series booking inventory via spreadsheets is a pain
Currently, series booking inventory is distributed via spreadsheets. This manual process often leads to confusion, and the travel agent can’t generate optimal revenue. Here’s why:
Travel agents can’t apply personalized markups for subagents
Travel agents can’t gauge demand accurately to optimally price tickets
Subagents may end up making multiple bookings with the same PNR
Manually following up on the customer’s name is tedious
Updating the airline’s database with the passengers’ names is effort intensive
Tracking agency performance in real-time is impossible
How AgencyAuto transforms your series booking process from end to end
With the AgencyAuto series booking solution, you can handle your series booking process in 3 simple steps:
Upload in no time
Upload all your series booking inventory from spreadsheets into the Series booking software with the click of a button.
Distribute at optimal rates
Allow your sub-agents to book your series inventory with a portal of their own while you get updates in real-time regarding which PNRs have been taken so that your subagents don’t make multiple reservations with the same PNR. Notably, you can apply personalized markups for each subagent or ticket based on market demand for optimal revenue.
Update passenger info without breaking a sweat
One of the most challenging aspects of distributing series inventory is keeping track of which PNRs have been snapped up by passengers. With our solution, you will be updated in real-time as passengers make bookings and update their details, so you can easily update the information to the airline reservation system without any confusion or multiple follow-ups.
Benefits of series booking solution that make it indispensable for every travel agent
Buy low, sell high
Apart from automatically applying markups for each subagent, you can also sell individual tickets at an optimal rate. You can buy tickets in bulk when demand is relatively low and sell the tickets for a higher price when the demand picks up.
Sell tickets in batches of increasing prices for maximum revenue
Travel agents can buy tickets in bulk, split them into batches, and sell each batch at a higher rate than the previous one based on market demand. You can get massive profit margins during festival seasons or sporting events when demand picks up over time and is maximum towards the end.
Increase customer delight
Given that you control ticket prices for your series inventory, you can distribute it at a lower rate than the one found on the airline website or online travel aggregators. This will prompt more passengers to book from you.
