TripBam enables agents to spot commissionable hotel rates

After a platform upgrade, travel agents can now identify commissionable rates using the hotel shopping service TripBam. 

Prior to the upgrade, the TripBam platform only ferreted out hotel rooms by cost.

“It just took some agencies to tell us how important this was to our corporate clients,” TripBam CEO Steve Reynolds told Travel Weekly.

Though 80 to 85 percent of the company's business relates to corporate travel, agencies also use TripBam for their leisure clients.

The product monitors hotel deals after a room has been booked, allowing agents to see if a less expensive room is subsequently offered at the same hotel or a similar hotel. 

TripBam rolled out the upgrade after testing it with Balboa Travel in San Diego.
