Las Vegas Sands Corp., a leading global developer of integrated resorts, announced that it will implement Travel Tripper’s RezTripTM 2.0 booking engine at five of its hotels worldwide.

When integration is complete, customers will book guest rooms and other products and services through the RezTrip booking engine for The Venetian and The Palazzo on the Las Vegas Strip, the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, The Venetian Macao, and Sands Bethlehem in Pennsylvania – properties with a total of almost 14,000 luxury resort rooms.

According to Rom Hendler, corporate vice president of strategic marketing for Las Vegas Sands Corp., “We evaluated custom-built options as well as many existing online booking engines and chose Travel Tripper because of their innovative technology, impressive team and capability to expand their solution over time to support our direct sales needs beyond hotel Web bookings.  RezTrip will better enable us to promote Las Vegas Sands Corp.’s unique guest experience from the moment consumers reach any of our Websites.”

Travel Tripper’s new 2.0 version of RezTrip streamlines the consumer shopping experience.  Using RezTrip’s powerful pricing capabilities, hotels can present consistent and logical pricing to consumers across rooms, rates and packages.  RezTrip 2.0 enables guests to book up to five rooms at a time at different room rates and even for different dates. Guests can e-mail in-progress reservations to co-travelers who can review or complete the booking, a feature which is perfect for the small unorganized group segment that forms a large component of Las Vegas visitors. The booking engine has full multilingual and multicurrency capabilities making it an excellent sales tool for hotels anywhere in the world.

“Winning the Las Vegas Sands Corp.’s business validates our efforts to provide a better e-commerce tool for the hotel industry. The Las Vegas Sands Corp. casino-resorts source business globally and operate massively complex full-service luxury properties where room accommodations are just the beginning of the on-property experience,” said Gautam Lulla, Travel Tripper COO.  “RezTrip was built for just this type of hospitality company and because of the tool’s powerful and unique features, it will help the Las Vegas Sands Corp. properties drive higher conversion rates, longer lengths of stay and higher average daily rates.”

RezTrip 2.0 is built on a robust open source technology stack that includes Linux, Java, MySQL, and Google Web Toolkit.  This enables quick and efficient implementation of new features that are critical to our customers. For example, Travel Tripper will put in place a real-time two-way interface to the Agilysys LMS property management system for the Las Vegas Sands Corp.
