B2B booking platform Roomonger goes live
TTG Asia Media is taking its B2B business further with the debut of Roomonger, a travel consolidator that offers agencies real-time booking access to hotels and other intermediaries.
Officially launched last month, Roomonger carrries inventory of more than 100,000 hotels across 150 countries – ranging from budget to luxury – obtained through direct contracts with hotels as well as connections to numerous suppliers.
The system filters the best available nett rates across all channels, which are competitive enough to provide a margin of 15-20 per cent. Transfers, tours and packages are also on the cards, and will be progressively added.
TTG Asia Media managing director, Darren Ng, explained: "We are in the business of facilitating buyers and sellers. If you look at our publishing titles, advertisers are suppliers who want to reach out to travel agencies. For our events, we provide a platform for sellers to exhibit and link them with buyers through appointments. Roomonger is a natural extension, where we secure suppliers' rates and offer them to buyers."
