Partnership Provides 2-Way Connectivity for Tour Operators
St. Louis, Missouri – June 15, 2017 – Reserve Direct, Inc., announces its full integration with Rezdy, the world’s leading B2B online distribution and reservation platform provider. The integration permits Reserve Direct and Rezdy’s “like” operators to dynamically manage their Reserve Direct account through content, rates, and inventory provided through Rezdy. This connectivity reduces management time for Reserve Direct operators while providing customers with more accurate and timely reservation paths.
“We couldn’t be more excited about our new connectivity with Rezdy,” explained John Johnson, President and CEO of Reserve Direct. “Our tour and activity operators are equally excited they can benefit from our vacation packaging without the added effort of managing yet another extranet.”
The two companies cater to tour and activity markets and share clients in many of Reserve Direct’s North American destinations, including Las Vegas, San Francisco, and New York City, to name a few. Where Rezdy provides reservation management in a B2B environment, Reserve Direct provides vacationers a B2C booking engine for planning and securing reservations in 16 U.S. markets.
“In our continued effort to remain the largest tour and activity distribution network, it only made sense to partner with Reserve Direct,” stated Simon Lenoir, Co-Founder and CEO of Rezdy. “Their destination driven consumer sales strategy represents a great opportunity for our North American operators, where they have the presence to distribute even more products.”
Rezdy, launched in 2011, provides online booking and distribution solutions to more than 2,200 suppliers in 88 countries. The company currently generates over $1 Billion in annual bookings to more than 45,000 activities and things to do. Rezdy’s North American operation is headquartered in Las Vegas and has its corporate offices in Sydney, Australia.
