Felix Shpilman, CEO of Emerging Travel Group, the company which manages RateHawk, commented: “The comfort and convenience of our partners when working with RateHawk is our chief priority. We know how important it is for travel professionals to be able to book all of a journey’s components in the same system, and we are therefore constantly working to provide our users with the widest possible range of travel services. We expect the opportunity to order transfers to be a highly popular additional service for 19,000 partners who already book hotels, air tickets and car rentals for their clients on RateHawk”.
Partners can order transfers at the following rates: Economy+, Comfort, Minivan, Business and First Class. A partner may book a transfer for a group of up to eight passengers in a single order. To book a transfer, a system user needs to specify the starting and end points of the journey, the date and start time, the number of passengers, quantity and parameters of any needed child seats (if necessary), flight number and quantity and dimensions of luggage items. The service has to be booked not later than 24 hours before the transfer begins.
The partner can set the commission independently. The booking is paid for by bank transfer, card or from the partner’s credit limit. After payment, a voucher appears in the agent’s online account containing all information about the transfer. The service is already available on the RateHawk platform’s desktop version and the new functionality will soon be added to the mobile app.
