Benefits of a SaaS-based Booking Software for a Small/Mid-sized Travel Business

2 minute read

Travel Software

An Online Booking System is a must-have tool for any travel business today. With more and more customers choosing to book travel online, travel agencies that are still operating offline are losing out big time. Whether you sell directly to consumers(B2C) or via intermediaries(B2B), investing in an online system can open up a lot of markets for you and get you significantly higher bookings, in addition to reducing your overheads.

Let’s say you have decided to go for an online reservation software. Great! Now the question is: Should you go for a SaaS-based software or a Licensed one? A SaaS(Software-as-a-Service) based solution is hosted and managed by the vendor, thus saving you hosting and maintenance costs. On the other hand, Licensed software is installed on your own server and requires a large IT expenditure on hosting and maintenance, making it more suitable large companies.

We at TravelCarma offer both models but advise small and mid-sized businesses to opt for our SaaS-based Monthly Subscription model for the following reasons:

  1. It is available at a Low Monthly Cost – you get a complete Online Booking System(B2B/B2C) with a Mobile-friendly Website, Back Office and a GDS Integration without breaking the bank!
  2. It comes with multiple plans, so you get the flexibility to choose the plan that fits your business.
  3. It offers an amazing ROI – your business can experience more bookings, higher sales, greater productivity and lower costs – all at an affordable monthly fee.

Many are recognizing the benefits one can get from Cloud/SaaS services and prefers to use it now than that of the traditional wired set-up. Planning to start using SaaS in your company?
