  • Agency360: A source of travel agent bookings from all four GDS systems. Marriott properties use Agency360 to improve corporate sales and marketing efforts in the GDS channel. Additionally, it enables Marriott properties to understand the opportunity for all travel agencies in their market and target sales efforts to those agencies with the highest average daily rate opportunity.
  • Travel agent GDS advertising: A tool that reaches travel agents at the point of sale, GDS Advertising helps hoteliers win and attract high-ADR bookings from business and premiere leisure travelers. TravelClick is Marriott’s choice for GDS advertising because it offers advertising on all four GDS systems and leverages proprietary business intelligence data to plan and optimize campaigns.
  • Rate360: A comprehensive rate-shopping solution for the hospitality industry. TravelClick’s Rate360 gathers more than 10 billion rates per month from more than 600 sources, the vast majority of which are gathered through direct API connections for the highest degree of data quality. Marriott uses Rate360 data to ensure its hoteliers have the most current room rate data to optimize their competitive position.
