If a booking has been made directly with the hotel, the rate that has been agreed for the stay can be entered into Hotel Booker by selecting the Add a New Rate tab.
The details of the rate booked with the hotel can then be entered. The date range defaults to the dates of the booking being processed. The Room Type and what the room rate includes must also be selected. Click on Add Rate.
The rate now appears in the list of rates available for selection and is displayed as a Corporate Rate.
Furthermore, a Corporate Rate will always be displayed a rate at the hotel which has been uploaded to Hotel Booker.
This acts as a ‘flag’ to clarify that there is a negotiated rate for the client at the hotel.
If the rate has been uploaded to the GDS, the Online Rate should always be selected.
Select the rate.
The Booking Contact and Travellers details can be added as described in Section 6.
Payment Method should also be specified and Custom Data Fields should be completed.
Now select Finish.
The status of the booking has now changed to Accommodation Booking.
Conferma writes a passive PNR into the GDS and appends any Custom Data Fields.
Conferma will then issue a confirmation e-mail to the booker and a confirmation fax to the hotel.
The Hotel Reference field and Passive Locator are stored under Office Use Information.
