Hotel Voucher System
The Hotel Voucher System is a web-based system that will be used to handle Hotel booking and reservation and to keep track of all the relevant information on the booking
Hotel reservation information is stored in the system as input by the user and when required, the user retrieves the information by searching the required hotel and inputting details required by client. Hotel reservation normally involves a lot of tasks whereby the travel consultant spends a lot of time finding hotel information either in Internet or brochures given to them by the hotels. For a travel consultant, this might prove to be too tedious especially when they are doing a reservation for a large group in different hotels and different reservation dates.
Hotels have different rates, which means the agent has to look at the respective documents whenever they have a client thus need for the hotel voucher system to put the rates in one place for easier and faster access by agents when needed. This will eliminate the possibility of errors occurring.It is created to ease the work of an agent as they are checking rates of a certain hotel for a client.
