Travel Agents Business System

After five months of development, we are pleased to release our new online reservations and business management system.  This system is designed not only to enable professional travel agents to book on British Airways directly, but to be able to manage your business as well.

Security

Top

SSL 128 encryption

Security is a constant concern for everyone using the internet.  Access to our TABS system is secure and all communications are handled in this secure environment.  Please use the latest browsers to ensure you system is compatible with this level of security.

Password Access

Every user has their own password access.  Please do not give your password to anyone or permit them to log-in using your password.  You will be responsible for all their actions and entries.  It is a simple process to add a user to the system so please do this for all users or ask you agency manager to sign you up.

Multiple connections

Each user should only log-in once.  If our system detects multiple log-ins by the same user, you risk termination of your access to the system and this may extend to your all users within your company.  There is a practical reason for this.  Every user is able to make reservations and it is imperative that the system keeps transactional integrity as you are making a booking.  Should multiple users log-in with the same password, this integrity will be compromised and you could well find that bookings can not be completed or have errors.

Credit Cards

In order to maintain full security with credit card information, TABS does not retain any credit card information.  All data is passed on to an off line server.  This ensure that no one can access this data.

Reservations

Top

First Seat Available

One of the most powerful features of TABS is its ability to check for available seats.  If there are no seats available on the dates you have requested, TABS will automatically search for the first date that does have seats available.  TABS will also automatically search for availability at the next fare level, presenting you with the choices.  You may well see multiple dates and flights offered.  TABS will combine dates and flights with the lowest fare with higher fares to give you the best combinations possible.  You will have unparalleled access to information and a simple one click booking system.

 

Last Seat Availability

 

 As TABS is directly connected to the British Airways Host system in the UK, all availability on BA flights is accurate and based on true last seat availability.  There is no conversion as the data passes through CRS systems so the integrity of the data is retained throughout the process.

 

Types of Bookings

 

TABS offers the widest range of bookings possible.  You can make one way, round trip, open jaw and double open jaw bookings.  Bookings are governed by the fare so if no one way fares exists to a particular destination, then one way bookings will not be possible.

 

Domestic flights within the USA

 

TABS is able to book connecting flights within the USA.  Just enter the city your passenger wants to depart from and TABS will take care of the rest. 

 

Domestic flights within India

 

If you are making a booking to India, TABS will provide you with an additional screen to book domestic flights on Jet Airways within India.

Booking Management

Top

Retrieve Bookings

TABS gives you the ability to retrieve all bookings.  You can display a booking even if you did not make it online, as long as it was made by a Greaves office.  If your reservation was made before TABS was implemented, there will be no Fare quoted, but you will still be able to retrieve the PNR.

List Bookings

TABS gives you the ability to list all your agencies bookings.  A simple one click will then access the booking within the BA host system.  You can display this list based on a range of different criteria such as all bookings with time limits due to expire today.

Order Tickets

Once you have retrieved a booking, you can place a ticket order, removing the time limit.  You are presented with a choice of payment and collection options.

Performance

TABS will be able to provide you with management reports in the form on graphs showing you your agencies sales performance.

Transaction Statements

TABS can display your account balance and a list of all your transactions.  This will assist you in managing your account with Greaves.

Fares

Display Fares

You do not need to make a reservation to see our fares.  Clicking on the Fares button will present you with a screen where you can enter any city pair using airport codes to see the fares available.

 

Fare Quote

 

For a precise fare quote, you need to select the dates and flights presented via the booking system.

Children & Infants

Top

Children

Book children just as you would adults.  Be sure to select the correct number of seats you require.  When you are presented with the screen to enter the names, you can select the title and age of any children.  TABS will correctly calculate a child's fare, as long as there are discounts for children.

Infants

You can enter Infants into a booking using TABS.  Please do not include infants when selecting the number of seats you wish to book.  BA rules permit only one infant per fare paying adult.  If there are more than one infant, there must be an equal number of adults traveling on that booking.  TABS can cater for two infants.  If you wish to book more than one infant per adult, the remaining infant must have a seat reserved and must pay the child's fare.  Simply select the number of seats you require at the start of the booking process and then when entering names, be sure to select child as the passenger type against that infants name.
