central reservation system
The concept of central reservation system was initially known as hotel CRS later it was also incorporated for the contents of car, bus, resorts, vacations and flights. The inventory of car, bus, flights (airline reservation system, ARS) and vacations were consolidated in one single CRS system to help manage the inventory, rentals and bookings of the respective travel services. Later to increase sales the travel agents distributed the CRS through B2B based travel agency website or hotel booking system. Large OTAs also developed their own API to integrate itself with other online reservation system.

The online reservation system is associated with all the following major travel services:

  • Airline Reservation System/ Flight Reservation System

  • Hotel Reservation System

  • Car Reservation System

  • Transfers Reservation System

  • Bus Reservation System

This assists the travellers do bookings through various payment gateway.

Payment Gateway Integration

Payment gateway integration in the CRS system help travel agents and online customers to book the hotels and above mentioned travel services like flights, vacations, transfers, car and events directly from the central reservation system. This helps in instant confirmation of the bookings and generate PNR and invoice immediately to the customers and sub-agents. Agents who have the deposit accounts have a capping on the bookings based upon their cut-off limit. Payment gateway integration helps them to have the option of bookings through credit card if they are not able to book through their deposit account or e-wallet facility.
