ABC Corporate Services has announced the launch of its new online hotel booking engine: EZ Book with ABC. The user-friendly booking tool, available via a secure portal on the ABC Web site, provides a solution for independent, home-based travel agents who may not have access to global distribution systems (GDS). EZ Book with ABC is powered by Hotelzon.
The product supports the unique needs of various user levels, including travel planners, travel agency managers, agency owners, travelers and houses multi-level profiles. It also provides users the same popular features and benefits of the dependable ABC Premier Hotel Program, including more than 30,000 global properties in 6,500-plus cities, commissionable rates, Premier Perks, Premier Block Space, and continuing user education via the ABC Webcast Series. Flexible reporting is available.
“We are delighted that ABC has partnered with us, enabling its international customer base of more than 5,000 travel agencies, access to the world’s most complete hotel booking engine,” said Per Andersson, sales executive for Hotelzon. “We look forward to a mutually beneficial long term relationship allowing us to support the ABC network for many years to come.”
