"WorldAgent Direct is MLT’s booking engine and is the primary way travel agents interact with us," said MLT Vacations President John Caldwell. "These improvements are based on our agents’ feedback and demonstrate our ongoing commitment to helping them grow their businesses and better serve their clients."
Travel agents now have the ability to request a specific hotel during an initial search for a new vacation package booking. The new search functionality is accessible from the main booking screen and the "Specials and Sales" page within WorldAgent Direct.
"This enhanced capability streamlines the booking process and should be a real timesaver for agents," said Caldwell.
Another recent improvement to MLT’s booking engine allows travel agents to view commission amounts throughout the booking process. This makes the system more transparent, and provides travel agents with an itemization of the commissionable amount of a vacation package price. The enhanced commission information is available from the main booking screen of WorldAgent Direct.
WorldAgent Direct also now gives travel agents the ability to email itineraries to their clients.
