World Travel, Inc. Launches TripBam-Powered Hotel Shopping Bot
By Harvey Chipkin
World Travel, Inc., one of the largest independent TMC’s in the US, has launched a new Hotel Shopping Bot powered by TripBam, which provides companies with a fully automated hotel re-shopping service aimed at securing lower rates. With its new offering, World Travel, Inc. sends hotel bookings to TripBam, where they are monitored daily. When a lower rate is found at the same property, TripBam automatically rebooks the same room at the reduced rate. World Travel, Inc. is offering its Hotel Shopping Bot in two different models, Essential and Premium. For the Essential model, customers receive automatic rebooking and daily rate shopping at like-for-like properties. Premium customers additionally gain the ability to customize their re-shopping configurations to allow for clusters of properties in a geographic region and also benefit from enhanced reporting and analytics.
