Management of credits on hold

Challenge

Challenge

Client had a high amount of bookings per month – 1000.  Their held ticket limit was consistently $80-90K, even while using daily held tickets within the booking system.

Client requested the use of credits, but many of these held tickets were partially used, didn’t have the flexibility to be used on other routes, or be transferred into other names.

While the Client would be sent a monthly held ticket report, the report did not detail these complications, creating delay in the booking process and frustration over the inability to utilise their available held ticket limit.

Solution

Solution

We worked to develop a solution that split partially and unused held tickets, and established a solution that enabled the efficient use of held tickets for the right bookings.

A weekly update containing revised listings for Client allowed their travel bookers to choose the correct held ticket via Serko at the time of booking, without delay.

Deliverables

Deliverables

$70K ROI within a year, to the Client.

Avoidance of held tickets expiring, driving cost savings for Client.
