Vacation.com now offers real-time cabin pricing and booking capabilities for both Viking River Cruises and Viking Tours directly through EZguider, Vacation.com’s exclusive online booking platform available to members.
EZguider is currently the only option for agents to book Viking products online, which makes this addition to the platform’s line-up of suppliers a historic event for Viking. In addition to Viking, the EZguider platform includes most major cruise lines, numerous tour operators, third-party insurance providers and, in the coming months, scheduled airline booking capabilities. With the addition of Viking and the air capabilities targeted to launch in the near future, there will be over 75 suppliers available to Vacation.com members on EZguider.
Vacation.com agents can compare Viking products side-by-side with numerous other tour and cruise products available in EZguider. Once a product is selected from the search results, EZguider displays rich content, availability and real-time pricing for quoting and booking by category. Agents can choose land-only packages or bundle the results with Viking's air and insurance.
“EZguider is truly a game-changer for leisure-focused travel agents,” said Steve Tracas, president and CEO of Vacation.com. “It takes numerous supplier products together in one place and provides great ease of shopping and booking as well as the ability to integrate with TRAMSClientBase .” Viking River Cruises is also working with Revelex and several other GDS providers. VRC's own booking engine will go live in a few weeks.
