One of the reasons I love my job is sharing great tips about the tools on VAX that make your job easier. Since we are in the midst of our Power Up For Peak campaign, I thought I’d share my current favorite three booking engine tips for 2019. I say current, because I can’t always claim the same favorites.
The Sales Email tool will always and forever be a top favorite. The fact that you can quickly and easily send up to six resorts or room categories in one email with links that your clients can click on to choose the property they want for their dream vacation is fabulous. But it isn’t the end of the story. You can also include up to three car option and six features/excursions in the same email as well! The Features also have a link to the profile that provides descriptions and crucial information that can allow the client to determine if it is something that can’t miss or ensure it’s a great fit for their vacation.

You can switch your origin in the middle of your booking to compare flight options from ORD vs MID to find the flight that best fits your client’s circumstance. It changes your city pairs without starting over, allowing you to continue on with your booking seamlessly.

You can find it in the left column of the Outbound Flights panel, but we’ve also got an education page on the flight filters for you, too.
The newest tool we have added is a true favorite for sure! Retrieving reservations has never been easier or more beneficial for tracking your bookings! I think I love it so much because it is truly as easy as it looks! You can still pull up a reservation with your reservation number as always, but if you don’t have it, simply click SEARCH under reservation search and all of your reservations will appear. You can filter down your results so easily by adding information in the field of your choice and your booking results will appear. Not only that, but you can now export your list of reservations to an excel spreadsheet with even more categories available to view. What a great way to:
