How TravelCarma helped
Team at TravelCarma did a detailed study of the client’s requirement, designed and developed an Online Hotel Booking portal with TravelCarma’s CRS (800+ hotels in CRS with multilingual option), TripAdvisor Integration, Four Channel Managers Integration, Customized Google Map with better search filters. We provided the following functionalities to the client:
- Deep linking for landing users directly on a Hotel list as well as Hotel Details page
This allows users to share hotel list page URL with specific dates and filters with another user. When the other user hits that URL, the hotel list page will load with the same dates and same filter criteria. Deep linking also enabled user to land directly on the details page of specific hotel. Suppose the user has already some specific hotel names to view. We made it possible in two ways: one, by hitting URL directly and another, by Quick Hotel Finder on the header of site.
- Active Search Filters
When user selects multiple filters, the selected filters will be displayed on the top of page as active filters. By this, the user can constantly see filter(s) selected. They need not go to filter section again. Remove filters feature was also provided.
- Advanced search
On the main search page, Advance search popup was provided to show different filters and search criteria on the home page itself. This allows users to select filters they are interested in to search hotels in the same advanced search popup.
- Add to favorite
This enables users to add hotels to their favorites list. The user will be able to see their favorite hotels in future and also if the hotel room will be available at on that date.
- Room compare
Users can compare different rooms from the same hotel or different hotels as well. Many criteria are available in this section for comparing rooms and their facilities.
- Language switching
We provided Bali Hotel Guide portals in three languages - English, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional. Users can easily switch from one portal to another and switching the language on hotel list and hotel detail page, it lands on the same page with same search date criteria but in a different language.
- Trip Advisor Integration
We integrated Trip advisor into the portal for the latest reviews and star rating for all hotels.
- Filters on Map
We provided the client our map-based search feature wherein users can search hotels on a map based interface, as opposed to a list-based one. The search also had filters so users can filter the hotels on map with based on the desired criteria.
TravelCarma made it extremely easy for users to search and book their desired hotels and access the latest TripAdvisor reviews for the hotels within the portal.
