Online PR News – 03-February-2015 – Jacksonville, Florida – January 29th, 2015 - TravelCarma, a global travel technology provider announces its brand new SMB Package designed keeping in mind the needs of small travel businesses. Today's travellers are tech savvy, and want information at their fingertips. They want to be able to search, compare and book holidays in the comfort of their living rooms. They also depend on the experience of other travellers and read their reviews of hotels, destinations and even travel agents before making the booking. However, they also want the personalized service they've been so used to receiving from travel agents over the years, including one-to-one travel advice, special discounts, ease of payments and being able to pick up the phone and speak to their travel agent in the middle of the night when things go wrong.

TravelCarma's solutions combine the best of both world's, allowing small travel businesses to leverage their 'offline' strengths while giving their customers a great online experience. TravelCarma doesn't change the small travel agent’s business model, it just improves the way the agents do business, by helping reduce costs and bringing about operational efficiency, leading to higher profits.

How does TravelCarma do all this? Well, firstly, it allows small travel agents to offer their customers a great-looking travel portal through which they can browse hotels, tours, activities and package deals from their contracted inventory. They can select a fixed package or build their own package and make the booking online, all at the click of a button, 24x7. TravelCarma's websites are optimized for mobiles devices, which means that customers get a rich user experience, whether they access them on a smartphone or a tablet. Another way TravelCarma helps small travel agencies and tour operators is through its Mid-office and Accounting system, which automates routine administrative and accounting tasks, improving their efficiency and accuracy and reducing costs. Moreover, it reduces a small travel agency's workload, allowing them to focus on their core competency. TravelCarma also offers customer, agent and inventory management tools that help streamline the business. TravelCarma's Reporting module lets small travel agents and tour operators track and monitor their operations to ensure that they stay on top of things.

A small travel agency's customers like to have flexible payment options, including cash/credit. TravelCarma allows small travel agents this flexibility in its B2C model through the 'Book Now Pay Later' feature, wherein customers can make the booking online and pay in cash at a later date, as per their agreed credit terms with the travel agent. TravelCarma also allows small travel agents to execute a differential pricing policy based on customer category.

1) Booking engine (Hotel, Car Rental, Activities, Transfers, Fixed Tours & Packages)
2) Booking Mode (B2C & B2B)
