Our state-of-the-art Central Reservation System (CRS) allows for complete customization to assist in capturing the unique booking attributes of each destination, providing the best service possible to website visitors. Together with RootRez, CVBs can take control of their local lodging marketplace, keeping bookings—and commissions—local, rather than encouraging the use of high commission online travel agency channels, all at the absolute lowest possible costs to association members.
A Booking Model to Match CVB Goals
CVBs typically have different objectives than most travel sites, catering to multiple stakeholders simultaneously. Whether offering additional marketing exposure to your lodging community, generating low-cost local reservations, finding a new revenue source to help fund your organization, improving the guest experience, or all of the above—we have custom solutions tailored to meet your diverse needs. Depending on your aims, we offer merchant models with revenue sharing, non-sharing plans to further reduce commissions, or a flat annual fee enabling 0% commission transactions for lodging association members.
Whatever your goals, a private label booking engine hosted by RootRez and seamlessly integrated into your website is included, often at no upfront cost. Full API connectivity is also an option for those seeking additional customization through self-hosting.
