Kiwi.com launches fully integrated booking tool for Tequila users
The new feature is another step in making Tequila the ultimate travel solution to power partner travel businesses
Kiwi.com’s Tequila portal introduces one of its latest feature updates — a fully integrated booking tool. Thanks to this feature, the platform can offer a complete solution to our B2B partners and power their travel-related businesses.
The tool, now freely available online on the Tequila portal, will enable partners to integrate Kiwi.com’s APIs to buy trips for their customers directly through Tequila. All that our B2B partners need to do is create a Search & Book application in Tequila and click on the Booking Tool tab in the navigation. Afterwards, they receive full access to selling Kiwi.com’s content to their own customers.
The available content includes all routes and deals that rely on our Virtual Interlining solution — a process that combines different routes at any one time from more than 750 carriers, including 150 ground carriers such as Deutsche Bahn, FlixBus, Eurolines, and Greyhound.
This results in billions of different route combinations of low-cost and full-service flights, trains, buses, ferries, taxis and ride-hailing. The booking tool will give access to one-way and return searches, NOMAD and MultiCity combinations based on the application created inside Tequila.
“Tequila provides all the information you need to power your travel business, whether you are new to the market or looking to leverage your brand and gain an advantage,” said Zdenek Komenda, CBDO at Kiwi.com.
“Tracking performance is easy with custom dashboards and reports, and managing your customers’ bookings is a simple process. With this freely available, fully integrated booking tool, Tequila will soon be a total that can drive all of our partners’ travel-related business.”
It brings about new payment methods, useful features in Manage My Booking and of course, the Kiwi.com Guarantee
With the new features, partners can now create a new application to implement the open payments platform Zooz and pay for bookings via company credit cards or use credit card payments for services inside the Booking Tool. Incentives are available when selling Virtually Interlined content, and with high conversion rates and excellent levels of commission, it is easy for our travel partners to start earning money.
Thanks to the Manage My Booking (MMB) feature, partners can easily view their bookings done with the date of making the booking, departure date, number of passengers, and the status of the booking. It also allows for the download of the e-ticket, boarding passes (if available), invoice and reservation confirmation. User can also set up price alerts which will inform them if a certain flight is available for a specific price.
What’s more, via MMB, it is also possible to request changes to bookings and flights, such as flight change, name corrections, and adding extras to the bookings. Extras include seat allocation, airport parking or transport, special assistance, and others. It also provides the user with an overview of credit activity (when was it deducted, when added).
And of course, all B2B products come with Kiwi.com’s industry-leading customer support and Guarantee, no matter what content has been booked. Kiwi.com will deal with individual carriers, so partners can streamline their operations and save on important costs.
Kiwi.com launched the Tequila portal in 2018 as a major innovation for travel providers around the world looking to broaden their range of travel products. It provides our B2B travel partners with easy access to content, technology, and services — all powered by our proprietary algorithms.
