Direct booking is the future of metasearch.

We power direct booking today – for air and ground travel, hotels, car hire and insurance – with no dependency on traditional distribution systems such as GDS. This means your customers stay on your property and can book any product in a couple of taps.

We power direct booking

Our Automation Cloud technology allows you to integrate direct booking on any supplier website. We can cover flight and ground transportation booking, hotel and car rental and other products, like insurance. We can also perform additional processes like check-in or price checking. Crucially, our technology doesn’t require integration on the supplier side, so broad support is rapidly achievable.

Integrating our services is simple and standardised. We have a single API with limited endpoints to book any travel product on a supplier website. This means you can design the full booking flow so your customers are offered an end-to-end experience.

This means churn is reduced. We know supplier websites often present disjointed and sub-optimal booking experiences. On mobile in particular your customers struggle to complete bookings and either fail or lose your attribution by switching to a bigger screen. We know too that the traditional distribution systems will dent your price advantage.

ubio travel means customers stay on your website or app in your own full booking funnel. You’re in control of optimising a singular experience on your property for booking anywhere. This drives loyalty to your brand.

Return customers with a user profile on your site can book in a couple of taps. Because we book directly with the supplier they, not you, remain merchant of record. We take care of the transaction and the customer receives the confirmation as if they were booking on the supplier site themselves. This means happier customers and much improved conversion.

We invisibly book any product in the background with very broad supplier and ancillary coverage – and we’re extremely economical, meaning your customer price promises are maintained.
