Apple Vacations is launching its new booking engine and travel agent portal, MyAppleOnline, powered by VAX VacationAccess. Travel advisors will have access to the new portal beginning on November 19, developed exclusively for Apple Vacations by technology firm Trisept Solutions, for travel occurring May 1, 2019, and beyond.
MyAppleOnline integrates with the Travel Agent Café while introducing numerous new efficiencies through VAX which will be designed to provide travel advisors more control over bookings and modifications, in addition to a host of engagement tools to connect with clients.
The company says technological improvements include an intuitive flow and design with quick access functions as well as individual agent log-ins to help travel advisors more efficiently manage bookings. Agents will be able to set their own surcharge amounts with options to display as part of the package price or as a separate fee. Sending email reminders as well as scheduling and applying payments are also upgraded with MyAppleOnline.
Travel advisors will be able to generate personalized sales email quotes embedded with an agency logo for up to ten recipients featuring six hotel stay or room category options, six feature options and three car options. An enhanced APPLE ACCESS agency website function will allow customers to book commissionable packages online 24/7.
For travel advisors booking groups, access to live group inventory will be complemented by the ability to view and update rooming lists as well as add individual air and other add-on components. The company says an option to apply group payments independently or in one lump sum provides greater flexibility for agents managing group business.
