Competitive Pricing Advantage
One question we receive often is “how competitive is your pricing?” While no website can claim to have superior pricing all the time (if someone could achieve this, there would be no reason for any other travel websites!), we are extremely competitive with the large online agencies. The following content and tools have been integrated into the our pricing displays to create our own proprietary pricing structure:
Discounted Airfare - Web Fares
Through our Galileo Partnership, we are able to offer our Home Based Agents complete access to all airline discounted “web fares”. This includes all published fares that American, United, Northwest, Continental, Delta and US Airways sell through any other GDS, third-party website or their own website and reservation offices.
Tier 3 Fare Search Technology – Simply the Best
With your MTravel.com affiliation, you will have access to Travelport’s Tier 3 heuristic, the world’s most powerful airfare faring and shopping technology. Travelport, the developer of this advanced system for airfare shopping, pricing, scheduling and seat availability, licenses its technology to a very small handful of companies worldwide. Tier 3 technology powers some of the largest travel websites in the world, and now it’s yours. Watch as your website produces upwards of 1,000 unique results for a single search!
Dynamic Packaging - Build Your Own Packages
MTravel.com is proudly the only host agency that provides its agents with both exceptionally powerful e-commerce Online and Agent booking products. Armed with this technology, our agents can build “on the fly” packages with access to specially priced, highly discounted distressed “opaque” supplier inventory and content. Our products allow our agents to customize travel packages combining at least two components of discounted airline, car and hotel rates, generating one low price for their customers. Once combined, agents are then empowered with the ability to determine their own package selling price (separate website access to control pricing). Having access to this type of discounted inventory gives you a significant competitive advantage and puts you miles ahead of the vast majority of travel agents and travel websites.
With most of the top destinations in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Europe, and the Caribbean, MTravel.com agents can offer their customers (and themselves) discounted “net rate” inventory up to 50 percent off comparable ‘a la carte’ booking prices. Using the Agent Booking Product, even with a 10% - 15% agent mark-up (or profit), dynamic technology can find and build custom packages priced as much as 10% (or more!) lower than similar packages currently available on Travelocity or Expedia.
Leisure Preferred Suppliers
MTravel.com has direct and consortia (Ensemble Travel) agreements with the top cruise lines, tour operators and wholesalers. Our upfront commissions range from 12-18% for our preferred suppliers. You’ll be able to find a supplier to meet the luxury to budget quality needs of your clients worldwide.
Discount Cruise Rates
In addition to the extraordinary deals offered on your personal website booking engine, MTravel.com also has very special pricing on major cruise lines for popular cruises and destinations. Sell cabins from our blocked space and allow your FIT clients to sail at group rates.
Galileo Web! Hotels
Galileo Web! Hotels allows agents to offer their customers the same pricing advantages of the Internet with savings of up to 75% off published standard rates.
Your MTravel.com website includes all the same highly discounted hotels and rates as you see on Hotels.com, because we are using the same “feed.” You can have the confidence that your site will serve up the most competitive hotel content in the market.
THOR Discount Corporate Rate Hotel Program
Many hotel programs are available to travel agencies today, but they are by no means the same. Only one program offers such a wide selection of hotels plus value-added services and amenities such as free upgrades. With over 14,000 participating hotels worldwide offering deeply discounted rates, THOR’s hotel program gives your clients the benefits they deserve.

When selecting hotel programs for your clients, the ABC Premier Hotel Program is the solution. One of the most complete programs in the industry, it offers ABC subscribers guaranteed commissionable rates that provide up to 59% off corporate rates and up to 77% off rack rates.
