The power of Trust: Travelclick and Hotel Continental

Travelclick & Hotel Continental: A story of success

When two organizations collaborate and take care of each other over the years, an indestructible trust is generated. That trust is the basis of long-term relationships between people and, in this case, between the supplier, Travelclick, and a customer, Hotel Continental.

Find out in this post how TravelClick’s lasting alliance with the Continental Hotel has helped to keep the technology up to date and improve its performance.

Small and family hotels with almost 200 years of family tradition

The case of Travelclick, web provider and online booking engine, is a clear example of success in the choice of technology partner. Professionalism and focus on the needs of Hotel Continental, which, although they are family and small-sized hotels, have managed to endure successfully throughout history. Effort, dedication, updating to the times and a great vocation of service, not only towards the clientele, but also towards the team, the suppliers and the surrounding environment. This is how the Continental Hotel has built its purpose.

“Direct booking helps us improve your experience”

Getting more direct reservations helps Hotel Continental to improve customer service and creation of shared value among all. It is known that OTAs (Online Travel Agency) are awarded commissions that could be considered abusive in some cases. The direct booking channel helps to establish a more direct relationship with the client, to offer the best price, a more equitable income distribution and a better balanced control of expenses and investments.

“In 2010, the OTAs (Online Travel Agency) did not exist. It used to be all direct reservations, but now the pressure of the OTAs is the biggest challenge we face. Now, at Hotel Continental we are very focused on direct reservations because it helps to improve the experience of our clientele and our team, also allows us to offer better rates. ”
