Employees travelling for work? Here’s why you need HotBOT!
Posted On 25th/Feb/2019 By Sophie
HotBOT the hotel booking optimisation tool is bespoke travel management technology.
HotBOT ensures you always get the best hotel rate.
If you’re involved in procurement and constantly get emails saying your employees have found a cheaper rate – HotBOT could be your salvation.
It is available exclusively to UK arrangeMY clients.
Hotel pricing is incredibly volatile and can change by the hour, with rates going up and down.
Intuitive HotBOT technology tracks all your existing hotel bookings and monitors fluctuating room rates.
If they are available, it will automatically rebook your room at a better rate.
Whist doing this, it will ensure that the room and hotel matches the original booking criteria (for example, it will only rebook at a better rate in the same hotel or rebook a better room at the same rate).
This ensures you always pay the lowest possible price.
All the hotel bookings you undertake with each hotel (including the reissuing of reservations) will be conducted seamlessly.
Billback is also included and automatic.
This makes business travel accommodation worry-free for your employees; as everything will be done and arranged for them.
All your traveller needs to do, is give their name when they check-in!
HotBOT guarantees the best rates and the best accommodation, every time.
This gives you and your people confidence in your managed travel programme and automatically adds in cost savings whenever possible.
You will also, from time to time, delight your colleagues when they discover that their accommodation has been upgraded!
HotBOT technology is installed on a gain-share basis (the tool is free and the costs are taken out of any savings made).
