What is ResConnect?

ResConnect provides tour operators, agents and booking channels the ability to electronically access ResRequest lodge and hotel inventory and rates, and process reservations.

Online booking

Bookings created from third-party systems are automatically recorded in ResRequest and are allocated a booking number. These are highlighted in a report for internal ResRequest users to easily identify.


Third parties such as tour operators can use ResConnect for availability and rates information. This enables tour operators to interface stock with packages setup in their internal systems. They are able to setup itineraries for any aspiring traveller easily and quickly with correct costing.

Third parties can electronically create bookings with ResRequest Enterprise clients.

ResRequest clients can restrict the amount of access available to third parties, regulating which third parties may view availability or book.
