TravelLine: Channel Manager users do not need to log in the Booking.com extranet any more to mark a case of no-show or a guest’s credit card incorrect details. Now you can do it on the TravelLine: Channel Manager extranet. The innovation is free and available for all TravelLine: Channel Manager users. TravelLine is the first company in Russia, providing such opportunity.
Booking.com puts hotels under tough conditions on bookings’ status. For example, you can register a case of no-show only within 48 hours after your guest check-in presumed date. If a staff member failed to set a necessary status, the IDS would acknowledge the booking as a proper one and would charge the commission fee. Any delay or mistake cause losses that is why a hotel staff has to log in to Booking.com regularly.
TravelLine: Channel Manager simplifies the staff work. You can specify that credit card details are incorrect right on the extranet of the channel manager. Besides, a hotelier can do it since the booking is received and until check-out. After that, Booking.com will email your client with a request to fix incorrect details of his bankcard. It must be done within 48 after check-out. TravelLine: Channel Manager transfers data to the IDS at once.
Roman Efremov, CTO at TravelLine:

The developers promise to extend the list of supported sales channels so you can check reservations on TravelLine: Channel Manager extranet. They claim to negotiate with several big Russian and foreign IDS/OTAs.
