Online travel agency Travelstart Nigeria has launched ‘Next’, in a move expected to simplify online flight ticketing and make it easy and convenient for travellers.
neXt addresses the challenges faced by travel agents who want to start their own business in the digital age, but are limited by challenges that include insufficient access to the latest technology, complex business models and exorbitant startup fees.
Travelstart’s neXt platform offers independent travel consultants a flexible, tablet-friendly application that features comprehensive flight search results, easy-to-use reporting and financial tools, as well as the technology needed to accept payments from a variety of channels rather than just Credit Cards.
neXt allows agents to focus on relationships with their customer while the system takes care of all post sales processes such as payments, schedule changes, and updating information.
Agents using neXt keep 100% of their markup, which can be changed in real time, and can further diversify their revenue streams by selling add-on products during the transaction or post sale.
Travelstart recently unveiled an instant refund service incase a travellers visa is denied to help cover travellers for the cost of airline ticket should their visa application be rejected by an Embassy and simplify what has been difficult and costly during travel planning process. Passengers get instant refund on full cost of tickets should their visas be denied.
