Take-off for Cosmonaut:

traffics starts official sales of new comparison and booking system

 

Berlin (w&p), 2nd of September 2016 – The rocket has taken off: After an extensive testing phase, traffics’ new counseling and booking system Cosmonaut will now go into official sale. The system has already been in use for the pilot client TVG. Cosmonaut is not only a highlight in terms of visual appearance and speed, but also provides a number of features which will ease the work of travel agencies. They will have the chance to select among twelve different themes such as rail trips, golfing, camping or cruises and will also benefit from various filters.

Users will have the possibility to search for direct flights, departure and arrival times or for required airlines within a package trip. Also, travel agencies can determine and choose their individual set of tour operators. One more filter function is the choice of multiple regions as well as the selection of recommendation rates for hotels.

Another highlight is the so called geolocated search. Users can mark a certain area on a map display and receive all available hotels within the section. If the segment is changed, hotels are being loaded automatically for the particular region.

Completely new within the traffics fare comparison and booking system is a function that enables users to search for holiday homes. Hereby, whole new possibilities will be available for travel agencies. They now not only have the chance to sell package trips, hotels as well as flights, but particularly domestic trips within Germany.

Last but not least, the design of the new Cosmonaut will be remarkable and has been designed in a very user friendly way. Agents have the chance to design their very individual counseling screen as well as to change to a so called kiosk surface.

“The new Cosmonaut will turn travel agency sale upside down. It offers everything that our partners ask for”, says traffics-CEO Salim Sahi. “I am very proud that we were able to benefit from a testing phase with more than 350 agencies to implement all requirements.”

Besides a large number of other features, Salim Sahi considers the use for comparison and direct bookings within one tool as the essential USP. Hereby, Cosmonaut stands out enormously from other tools, as no other system has to be used. Also, Cosmonaut is compatible with all midoffice systems.

On the occasion of Cosmonaut’s launch, traffics and BillPay will go on a road show in autumn with partners such as Aerticket, Celestyal Cruises, FTI Touristik, Holiday Extras, Interhome, JT Touristik, paxconnect, Sunny Cars, Viva Hotels and Vtours. Travel agents will have the chance to test Cosmonaut personally.
