Apple Vacations Bookable on VAX VacationAccess

On Monday, November 19th, 2018, Apple Vacations® will be available to book within the VAX VacationAccess® platform for all travel beginning May 1, 2019 and beyond. This much-anticipated transition marks another incredible milestone in the post-merger integration of Apple Leisure Group® with The Mark Travel Corporation® and Trisept Solutions®.

To avoid business disruptions during the peak booking season, all reservations made for travel prior to May 1, 2019 will continue in the current Apple 4.0 booking platform. This will also allow travel agents time to learn the VAX system, receiving the trainings and answers they need for a successful transition.

As travel agents are an integral part of every decision made, this move will allow Apple Vacations to better serve agents through more competitive rates with Direct Connectivity, additional product including Southwest Airlines® fares, individual agent log-ins to help travel advisors more efficiently manage bookings, Convenient calendars for hotel availability and Exclusive Vacation Flights will make it easy for Apple Vacations’ retail partners to browse options, and generate personalized email quotes embedded with an agency logo as well as an engine with intuitive flow and design with quick access functions. For travel advisors booking groups, seamless access to live group inventory will be complemented by the ability to view and update rooming lists as well as add individual air and other add-on components. An option to apply group payments independently or in one lump sum provides greater flexibility for agents managing group business. With the transition, Trisept Solutions is also working to combine the features of Apple Online 4.0 that agents like, such as the ability to modify bookings, auto - cancel bookings online, and create multi-gateway bookings with the VAX platform’s already unmatched capabilities for a truly unbeatable experience.

Launching Apple Vacations on VAX unites all of the Apple Leisure Group brands on one platform for easy access and a uniform booking experience. This will combine an extensive product line up with incomparable technology and carry out the ALG mission of working together with agents, for agents.
