29 Booking Vacations in VAX VacationAccess 29 Identifying Hotel Sources Hotel information may display differently depending on the source in which VAX receives the hotel s data. Internally-Sourced Hotels LTMS/Tandem These are hotels where the prices and room allotments are contracted by The Mark Travel Corporation (TMTC). The Mark Travel Corporation negotiates rates, room categories, and a daily allotment of rooms to be offered in their leisure packages. The allotment of rooms and rates are held and managed internally within The Mark Travel Corporation database. Remote-Sourced Hotels DHISCO (formerly Pegasus) A system that allows subscribers such as TMTC to link directly to a hotel or hotel chain database for inventory and pricing. HBS/HBSi (Hotel Booking System) This is a system that allows a direct connection to hotels that TMTC has contracted to sell. Unlike the LTMS/Tandem-contracted hotels, this direct connection allows for accessing prices and inventory directly from the hotel instead of storing and maintaining the data internally. Hilton Link - A system that allows a direct link to Hilton s system to obtain inventory and pricing. Currently TMTC offers Hilton hotels via both the Hilton Link and LTMS/Tandem. Location: LTMS/Tandem and HBS hotels will list the general area of the hotel plus mileage from nearest airport. Pegasus and Hilton Link hotels will only display mileage from nearest airport. Inventory: LTMS/Tandem hotels will show an availability number for hotels and also have an alternate availability calendar. All room categories will list even if not available (N/A) or if the room is on request. Remote sourced hotels will only display if available. They will not show the number of rooms available, the alternate availability calendar, nor be on request. Hotel Profiles: LTMS/Tandem and HBS hotels are managed internally and will display in regular format. Pegasus & Hilton Link hotels will display depending on the information loaded by the hotel.
30 30 Recognizing the Hotel Source on the Hotel Availability Screen LTMS/Tandem hotels will show on request (RQ) or closed out status (N/A) when not available in the hotel availability screen. When not available, any direct connect sourced hotel will not show up at all in the hotel availability screen. Hotel Source LTMS/ Tandem Availability Display Inventory Calendar Display # of Rooms Yes Location Lists city & state, plus has additional descriptors like: Downtown, On the Strip, On the beach, Off the beach, etc. Room Category Name (See examples) Short and simple names. Examples : Standard, Deluxe City View, Pool View, Family Suite, etc. HBS/ HBSi No No Same as above. Hilton Link* [Currently Blank] No No Lists city & state only. No other description.. *Not all Hilton Hotels are sourced via direct connect link. You can recognize them once the reservation is booked as they will have an HteHotel Confirmation # in the Comment History. DHISCO No No Lists city & state only. No other description. Usually long and very specific in description. - another example - VAXVacationAccess.com
31 Booking Vacations in VAX VacationAccess 31 Recognizing the Hotel Source in a Reservation s Comment History Once a reservation is booked, you can easily recognize a hotel s source by opening your customer s reservation in VAX and looking in the Comment History within the Itinerary Tools panel.

Available rental companies vary by destination. The top of the Rental Car panel will display the number of available rental cars and the current pick-up and drop-off dates. Car rental availability is in a grid format to make it easier to read and compare prices between car classes and sizes. Vertical columns separate the available rental companies and horizontal rows list available car types.

32 32 Pick-up and Drop-off Times These are estimated pick-up and drop-off times for the car rental. These times are automatically entered from the arrival time and date at the destination and departure time and date. The drop-down menus allow you to adjust the pick-up and drop-off times. Pick-up and Drop-off Locations Typically, this is the location nearest to the destination airport. Prices By clicking the price, you can view the car profile for that rental car company. Select Clicking the select button will add the associated car to the travel itinerary. Length of Car Rental Due to the logic of basing pick-up and drop-off times on flight schedule, there is a possibility that an extra day of rental charges could be applied on the checkout screen. A warning message will display to alert you of this possibility. VAXVacationAccess.com
33 Booking Vacations in VAX VacationAccess 33 To decline the extra day: Remove the car by selecting the Remove link Go back to the Car Rental availability screen Edit the drop-off time to match the pick-up time Select the car again Renting a Car in One Location and Dropping It at a Second Location If your client needs to rent a vehicle in one location and drop it off at a different location, click Additional Search Items in the Rental Cars panel, choose a rental car company, the desired pick-up and drop-off locations, and the applicable dates for each.
34 34 Car Rental Booking Best Practices Length of Rental Rental car rates are based on a 24-hour period, starting at the pick-up time and ending at the drop-off time. For example, on a two-day rental, if a client picks up a car on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m., he/she must return the car on Thursday before 2:59 p.m. Any time after 2:59 p.m. on Thursday would subject the customer to hourly counter charges, payable directly to the rental company. Removing the Extra Day The system will automatically add an extra day to the car rental at checkout if the drop-off time is later than the pick-up time. It is good practice to discuss the need to keep the extra rental day to avoid late fees. If there is less than two hours difference in arrival and departure flight times, an extra day is normally not needed. Any time variance over two hours should initiate a discussion with the client to determine if they would prefer to keep the extra day to avoid hourly counter charges. Note: More than three hours in hourly counter charges could cost more than an entire day s rental cost. Size of Car Rental The car chosen must have enough seat belts to accommodate all of the passengers. This is a good opportunity to up-sell car size for comfort and ability to hold travelers luggage. Driver s Name Entered First The name entered first (the lead traveler) in the booking will be the name that is transmitted to the car rental company. Does Your Client Know? These are important things to find out from your client or inform your client of when they include a rental car in the package. These tips will limit many unpleasant surprises. Is the driver at least 21 years old? The minimum age to rent a car is 21 years old. From age 21 to 24, car rental companies charge an underage surcharge that must be paid at the time of rental. Does the driver have a valid driver s license and good driving record? Car rental companies will need to see the driver s license at the time of rental. Also, car rental companies may do a check of a driver s record. Car rentals can be declined due to a poor driving record. VAXVacationAccess.com
35 Booking Vacations in VAX VacationAccess 35 Does the driver have a major credit card in their name? Car rental companies will ask the driver for a major credit card for deposit on the car. If they do not have a credit card, they will need to qualify with a cash deposit. Details for cash deposit qualification are found in the car company s supplier profile. What is included in the rental cost? Inform the client that the rate may not include state and local taxes, gas or any insurance/waver options offered by the rental company. Clients should be informed that these are payable to the rental company directly. Does the hotel charge for parking? Check the hotel profile to see if they charge parking fees. If so, advise the client of this charge and that the hotel will collect this fee.

43 Booking Vacations in VAX VacationAccess 43 A set commission amount will be automatically added to the gross package price, depending on supplier. The set commission cannot be removed from the gross price. The Commission panel allows you to view or adjust the commission amount. Commissions may be increased or decreased by either a percentage or dollar amount depending on the supplier. Important: When an agent opts to use a percentage, it is factored in as a percentage of the commission and not the package price. Adjusting commission adjusts the base package price. Agents can choose to display the commission information on the invoice by checking the Display as Line Item checkbox. Click the Set Commission button upon entering the desired amount to update the commission amount. Note: Commission amount can be adjusted at time of booking or modified in a booked reservation. There is up to a 5-10% processing fee that is taken out of the increased commission amount, depending on the supplier. For example, if you want to increase commission by $100.00, the commission itself will increase by $95.00, but the package price will increase by $ (for 5% fee). Commission caps can vary by supplier. It is common for an adjustment cap (maximum) of either $ or up to 25% of the gross package price, whichever is
44 44 higher. If an amount is entered that would bring the commission higher than the cap amount, a notification message would display and the system would automatically re-adjust to the maximum.

83 Booking Vacations in VAX VacationAccess 83 Bookings that occur less than 46 days prior to departure (and depending on the supplier you book with), you may not have the option to schedule an automatic final payment. Advantages to scheduling automatic final payment: Reduce Workload. By setting all your payments to be paid automatically, you re not as pressured to keep track of reservations that need payment or paying them on time. Once an automatic payment date is established, VAX will handle the rest. Save time. No more worry about following up on final payments. Upsell. Engage clients with the schedule reminder option. Encourage room upgrades and additional destination experiences when you follow-up for final payment. Go Green. By eliminating paper bills and check writing, you reduce the impact on the environment. Improve Security. If your client s bills are not mailed to your agency and you are not mailing in paper payments with credit card or checking account numbers, you reduce the risk of identity theft. While there are risks when paying online as well, the security surrounding these payments is typically far greater than the security offered by an unlocked mailbox. Reduce Errors. An receipt will be sent when the final payment is successfully applied to the credit card. The final payment selection will also be reflected in Accounting History and in the comments. Cancelling a Scheduled Final Payment If a final payment has been scheduled (either the automatic final payment or the reminder), it may be canceled any time prior to the scheduled date. 1.
