Accommodation providers and customers of the leading travel technology company RateGain can keep their availability and rates up to date and better manage reservations brought to them by global travel wholesaler GTA, thanks to RateGain’s new connection to GTA’s Supplier XML Application Program Interface (API).
- GTA’s Supplier XML Application Program Interface (API) is an easy to use and seamless point of access to GTA’s systems
- It helps hotels keep their availability and rates up to date and better manage reservations
- It makes information about RateGain’s hotel clients immediately available to tens of thousands of travel selling businesses using GTA’s booking systems
“Our partnership with RateGain gives their customers an easy way to put their latest rates and availability in front of tens of thousands of travel-selling clients around the world,” says Martin Jones, GTA’s Senior Vice President for Global Sourcing & Product Development.
“Hotels rely on RateGain’s solutions to make it easier for them to work with a wide range of distributors like ourselves and manage rates and allotments to present the most enticing offer to potential travellers. Now, our Supplier XML API makes it even easier for RateGain to connect to our systems, helping hotels benefit from our extraordinary reach. It means every hotel – whatever their size or budgets – can reach, market and sell to new and existing consumers.”
Commenting on the new connection Vishal Jain, RateGain’s CPO, said: “We continue to embrace new technologies to enable hoteliers deliver better deals and service to their customers. The Supplier XML API will result in more efficient rate distribution, enhanced rate optimization and the streamlining of our connection.
