The DirectConnect Suite is a collection of software and internet application tools that allow our valued clients to connect directly to our reservations and information system.
DirectConnect is the fastest, most efficient way of communicating with our reservations center. The system is capable of providing instant availability, pricing, and booking confirmations which dramatically (or in many cases, completely) eliminates time spent on the telephone! Additionally, if you are subscribed to our 'prevailing rate' feature your rates will be automatically adjust to take advantage of any current sales or promotions. As of our latest update DirectConnect clients now receive access to last-minute inventory and can take advantage of same-day booking as close as 1 hour from departure depending on the tour.
DirectConnect can work in your organization in several ways. If you utilize an in-house reservations system, our DirectConnect API (Application Programmer Interface) component can be leveraged by your technical team to easily build a communications bridge between your system and ours. For PHP developers the job is even easier as our SDK (Software Development Kit) contains the necessary libraries to communicate with our system out of the box.
Additionally, for our clients who don't use large (or even small) reservations systems, our DirectConnect Panel provides a user friendly, dead simple website that can be used to make reservations on behalf of your customers. The panel runs entirely inside a web browser - so there is no software to download.
Note: For security, speed, and stability reasons, our DirectConnect team highly recommends the Google Chrome browser. Its available for free from Google Chrome. You'll never want to use Internet Explorer again.
