ebooking.com, working together with Expedia Affiliate Network (EAN), offers a preview of a new service to enable painless searches for the best deals over a range of dates, showing availability and prices up to 500 days from the search date. This new service is called RateCalendar.
Thanks to the exclusivity offered by ebooking.com , the familiar functionality of flight booking now comes to on-line hotel bookings, for the first time in this sector.
The RateCalendar is a major breakthrough to the user, permitting a simple, visual, fast way to compare and choose a hotel that best suits user’s requirements, within a period of year or more, while still allowing a subsequent cancellation without charges, at most of its hotels.
The first phase of this new system only applies to 25% of the hotel inventory, but will increase to 100% in a few months.
This new feature promises radical change in the way we will make our hotel reservations by allowing customers to have advance information on forward prices while achieving a saving on the e booking.
As an example, check out operation of the service at the Pershing Hall Hotel (Paris), one of the hotels where the RateCalendar utility is now available.
