How to start with Effective Tours (ET).
At first you have to register at Effective Tours. While registering, you have to choose your company role:
- Coach Service – if you provide only the transfers/taxi service, then this is the right choice for you. You will be able to add different routes and provide transfer rates depending of the route and amount of passengers. You can connect Tour Agents/Operators with separate markup values, and do your sales throw them.
- Hotelier – if you run a hotel or several hotels then you have to choose this option. As a hotelier you can add your property to ET, manage it’s description, photos, rates, availability, discounts. You can connect Tour Agents/Operators with separate markup values, and do your sales throw them.
- Tour Agent – if you are interested to resell hotels and transfers from others, not your own, then you have to chose this option. It’s important to understand, that you can resell only the offers from the ET owners with whom you already concern to deal. Effective Tours is not providing you with a list of hotel or taxi owners, you have to find them by yourself and connect to your Tour Agent account. You have to use this role, in case if you want to resell somebody who is already in the ET system. As a Tour Agent, you can also resell the properties which you are getting from other suppliers to the agents of yours. And а course you can also adв ad additional value on top of them by using markups, to get you interest as well. If you are a hotelier/taxi provider, you can advice your agents to register as a Tour Agent to update them with your recent promotions, rates, photos, inventory.
- Tour Distributor – the most powerful role in the system which allows you to add your own hotels and transfers. Allows you to get connected with the other users of ET and promote theis offers to your client, as well as promote everything you have to the third party agents/operators which is already in the system.
