Book Now, Pay Later for Flight & Hotel Booking

While planning a trip for your customers, a lot of times customers aren’t ready to book as their flights are not booked or they’re waiting for VISA confirmation or any other variety of reasons. There is always uncertainty regarding price hikes at these times which could lead to a loss of potential customers.

To solve these problems, travel agents can utilize the Hold Feature which is an easy way to reserve your flight & hotel booking at zero cost. TravClan introduced the Hold Feature for its agents sometime back to help them grow their business by getting a lead time before the need to confirm.

Book Now & Pay Later

The hold feature allows you to book at zero cost so that you don’t have any cashflow issues. You have the option to confirm or release the booking before the hold date expires. This allows you and your customers to decide and confirm their booking, avoiding any booking loss.

With this feature, you get the following benefits:

– Lock Prices at ₹0* & Prevent Price Hikes
– Flexible Booking with Easy Release Option
– No need to Block your Working Capital
– You can Hold upto 3 months
– Hold at Best Prices

This is a great way of ensuring the best booking options for your customers as they can enjoy ease and comfort while planning a trip. Also, this allows them to get money to confirm their booking. This leads to customer satisfaction and also might lead to repeat purchases by them.

Hold Booking is a great way to especially secure more international booking since the rates internationally fluctuate a lot. Top Tourist destinations like Europe, America, Iceland, etc., are done on hold basis in the travel industry.

You can hold flights & hotels for top tourist destinations in advance. Holding in advance can prevent price hikes and help you provide the best rates to your customer and ensuring their satisfaction.

If you can get good rates for customers, it will help them save money and will make sure they are very happy with your service. Customer Happiness will also lead to great feedback for your work, they will recommend you to their friends and family, allowing more business to flow your way.
