SafeTravels announces Rezdy Partnership

SafeTravels announces integration partnership with Rezdy

by Chris Reed – Founder & CEO

SafeTravels has partnered with leading travel booking platform Rezdy in July 2017. With Travel Agents, Tour Operators, and Activity Providers across 73 countries using Rezdy as a marketplace to sell and book travel products and services in real-time, it makes perfect sense for SafeTravels to partner with Rezdy to offer our very first integrated platform.

The partnership between SafeTravels and Rezdy creates a seamlessly automated process for travel companies using both platforms to provide a mobile app solution to their customers. Whenever a travel booking is made on Rezdy, all booking information is automatically transferred to SafeTravels where the travel companies’ customers can view all their trip information in the SafeTravels mobile app.

This partnership is an important step in the SafeTravels strategy to becoming the leading mobile app platform for travel companies of all sizes. Since we started developing SafeTravels, one of our biggest challenges was to solve the issue of making it as simple as possible for travel companies to easily create trips in SafeTravels. Initially, this was made possible through focusing on Tour Group companies that have rather static and reusable itineraries, but as we expanded into the broader Travel Agent and Activity Operator section, every booking and itinerary created by them was unique to each customer and we needed a smarter way to accommodate this. Integration with a leading travel booking platform became the only logical option for SafeTravels.

The Rezdy platform can be connected to the SafeTravels platform in a matter of minutes. All the travel company needs to do is add their Rezdy API key to the SafeTravels app. For Travel Agents, a unique trip will be created in the SafeTravels application for each travel booking made in the Rezdy platform and you can control when your customers will receive the invitation to download the SafeTravels app which will then provide them with access to the booked trip in the SafeTravels platform.

Additionally, Tour Operators and Activity Providers can further benefit by making use of the SafeTravels Trip Template feature. For tours and activities that require detailed itineraries and notes (i.e. a multi-day tour), the travel company’s Rezdy product can be linked to a Trip Template. Each time the SafeTravels backend recognises a new booking matching the Rezdy product, a new trip will be cloned from the corresponding Trip Template.
Further, travel companies using the integrated Rezdy solution will be able to benefit from all other SafeTravels features such as:

1. Mobile Itineraries. Provide your customers with every detail of their itinerary, notes, and documents in a mobile app that they can access – even when offline.

2. Real-Time Updates. When itinerary information is modified, customers will be alerted of the change through a notification on their phone.

3. Personalised Messages. Create personalised reminder messages that will automatically send to your customers before their activities. This is customisable according to your needs.

4. Tour Guides. Detailed destination guides for over 700 global cities and counting.

5. Create Your Own Branded Mobile App. The SafeTravels app allows travel companies to create their own branded version of the SafeTravels app to provide a unique branded app.

6. Communication Solution. Be able to communicate with your customers before, during, and after their trip by sending group updates or direct messages.

7. Collection of Data. Collect important safety/emergency information from your customers such as emergency contacts, travel insurance details, medical information, etc. that will be accessible by the Travel company in case of an emergency.

8. Up-Sell Additional Products/Services. The SafeTravels platform accommodates the ability for travel companies to sell additional products and services to their current customers. These up-sells are linked directly to the activities in the customer’s itinerary and can be automated based on where the customer is and the type of activity the customer is signed up to. For example, a travel company is able to up-sell another related activity to its current customer.

Ultimately, the SafeTravels application creates a platform for both travel agencies and activity operators to maximize earning potential by leveraging time-sensitive offers and relationship-based products to their customers based on their current trip itinerary. These offers will be linked directly to the agency’s or operator’s Rezdy-enabled website and payment gateway.

SafeTravels will soon provide additional features allowing customers of travel companies to search and book additional travel products directly in the SafeTravels app by utilizing the Rezdy payment gateway.

SafeTravels is offering a once in a lifetime special introductory offer whereby all booking generated via the SafeTravels application will not incur any transaction fees for the remainder of 2017. Travel companies are able to trial the integrated SafeTravels and Rezdy solution as part of their FREE 30 day SafeTravels trial.  Our app accommodates all travel companies no matter the size and style with different types of monthly subscription plans that are cost effective for all.
