Los Angeles, CA – Tours4fun, a Ctrip (NASDAQ: CTRP) company, today announced it had agreed to integrate with Rezdy, a global tour operator software company.
The integration will allow suppliers using Rezdy’s booking software or its channel manager product to distribute their products via Tours4fun’s full-service online travel superstore. Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, Tours4fun’s travel experts search the globe to find travelers popular, handpicked tours and activities from trusted local travel suppliers at the best prices.
Kelly Chen, Tours4fun Marketing & Merchandising Director said, “We chose to integrate with Rezdy first because of their large network of suppliers and proven two-way API. Providing real-time availability from suppliers using Rezdy will improve customer satisfaction levels as they will be able to instantly book and confirm both activity and package bookings. We are also very excited about expanding Tours4Fun into the Pacific market further as it’s a key growth region for us.”
In 2014, Tours4fun introduced hotels to its product range. Travelers now have access to a worldwide inventory of more than 85,000 hotel properties and can book any discounted hotels immediately online. Introducing live availability for tours is the next logical step for the company.
Rezdy CEO Simon Lenoir commented, “We are very pleased to be working with Tours4fun, because they will add valuable North American and Chinese distribution for our suppliers. Rezdy’s goal is to integrate with all the leading OTAs and marketplaces selling tours and activities. Not only will this bring more bookings to suppliers using the Rezdy platform, the API integration means that the supplier can automatically share their pooled inventory with Tours4fun, drastically reducing the staff time involved in processing bookings.”
The Tours4fun integration with Rezdy is planned to go-live in February 2015.
