RoomKnights approaches booking solutions for DMOs from a completely new angle.

We publish the DMO logo as a booking option in metasearch engines like TripAdvisor, Trivago and Google right next to major travel companies like Expedia and Booking.com. Then we bring the consumer into a booking experience unlike any other. Our goal is not only to give the customer the ability to book, but to make the DMO website the BEST place to book.

The RoomKnights booking engine is more than just a software tool for booking rooms.

RoomKnights offers a booking engine solution for DMOs that gives consumers a user-friendly and flexible booking experience. The hotel receives branded confirmations from the DMO and the DMO gets extensive reporting of all booking activity including customer email addresses and ROI tracking for marketing investments. We even offer customized booking engines for major events and festivals.

10% – 50% of the shoppers that use our exclusive 24-hour hold feature book the room they put on hold! These are bookings that would otherwise be lost in many cases.

CONNECTIVITY

Hotel members are given a quick and easy way to supply content, rates, inventory and special promotions. Our system works with most major channel managers or we can pull rates and deliver reservations automatically through the GDS. We even offer a request-based system for hotels that do not have any systems in place at all.

“From the moment we met the RoomKnights team, we’ve been blown away with their professionalism, ingenuity and results. They have produced bookings right from the start while being remarkably flexible and easy to work with. We expect this rising company to continue to be on the cutting edge of booking platforms!”

– Kurt Burkhart, Executive Director, Charlottesville Albemarle Convention & Visitors Bureau

One out of 3 travelers use metasearch to find and select their hotels. Don’t miss these important channels of demand. Connect your members directly to these shoppers and avoid high OTA commissions.

Publish your destination’s logo in metasearch engines like Kayak and Trivago, and attract people to book hotels and attractions on your DMO website.

Your booking engine should not be a passive tool that sits on your website in case someone wants to make a booking. Use metasearch to proactively attract potential visitors to book on your DMO website and generate revenue for your partners.
