launches on-line booking service for operators

29 May 2007 by launches on-line booking service for operators has launched an online product for accommodation owners allowing them to create a commercial website which can manage bookings and availability.

The product, dubbed ‘Web in a Box', will also allow operators to feed product direct into the tourist portal.

Marco Truffelli, chief executive, said: "The internet continues to revolutionise the way consumers buy tourism in Scotland and around the world.

"It's vital that Scotland gets ahead of the competition by offering tourists up to date and accurate internet-based information which enables them to be engaged, informed and persuaded. claims accommodation owners can create a website in less than 90 minutes, including setting up feeds into the portal.

"We are encouraging those getting involved to develop their own online marketing packages with local attractions, experiences or travel companies so the visitor has lots of information live and online," Truffelli said.

Product owners will be charged £10 per bed per year and will receive a 8% commission on bookings handled via its own portal.
