Through a new partnership with travel industry technology provider 11Infotech, we are now able to connect with multiple channel managers. This has provided us with a new window of opportunity to offer hotels that give us both dynamic and static rates. Consequently, Asian Trails remains competitive for short-time lead periods and last minute bookings, as well as for longer lead booking windows. Furthermore, we can now offer instant online booking payments to our suppliers by automatically generating virtual credit cards.
Our customers now benefit from accessing competitive dynamic real-time rates, including exclusive promotions that can be seamlessly combined with our other services – a big step for our online distribution.
Besides the launch of eConnect, WTM London was also a significant event for us as we received an award for our accessible tourism products under the category ‘Access for the Differently-Abled: as Travellers, Employees and Holidaymakers’.
The last year also saw the renewal of our Travelife partner status – the leading global sustainability certification for the tourism sector. To give back to host communities, our staff embarked on some admirable CSR activities, such as planting mangroves in Thailand and tree seedlings in Cambodia.
In product, we’ve invested our time in reviewing and renewing where required, and introduced various new responsible travel options, such as E-Vehicles In Thailand For transfers and excursions. We’ve unveiled new SIC itineraries In Vietnam, as well as new ways to explore Kinabalu National Park In Malaysia and a island hopping experience In Singapore, to name but a few.
We look forward to blazing more exciting trails across Asia in 2023.
Greetings from all at Asian Trails!
