Product description

The management of guaranteed availabilities (allotments) has until now required a great deal of manual effort, especially for travel and cruise operators and airlines, which serve groups of nine and more passengers. HitchHiker is one of the few technology providers on the market, which provides a professional solution for your flight contingencies and group bookings.

For example, the HitchHiker Allotment Manager gives you the option of automating scheduled actions which refer to the management of your allotments and bookings, such as dispatching emails to an airline or the automated data import from Amadeus Negospace.
Via integration into the HitchHiker Flight API it also offers the option of combining your flight contingencies with various other travel arrangements in your own tour operator system. Moreover, it is possible to make the allotments bookable directly online for your agents or endconsumers. With the HitchHiker Allotment Manager you therefore are able to push the online distribution of single seats as well as the packaging of your allotments.

It makes no difference whether you would like to manage your group bookings online / offline, your full charter flights, your Amadeus Nego Space or your booking class allotments. The HitchHiker Allotment Manager offers a wide range of allotment types, which adapt to an array of different business models.
Technical Highlights
  • Graphical User Interface (Allotment Entry) to enter negotiated flight allotments
  • Automate scheduled actions via the Action Service:
    • E-mail dispatch to airlines (e.g. release 50% of the seats 10 days before departure and send passenger list 2 days before departure to a specific e-mail address)
    • Automatic data import from Amadeus Nego Space
  • Integration into the HitchHiker Flight API for quick and efficient delivery and ability for your Allotments to be booked in all connected distribution systems (e.g. agent platforms, travel portals, tour operator systems…)
  • Optional setting of priorities for sale via the Flight API (“Show Allotments First”)
  • Optional combinations of allotments with feeders and add-ons from the standard availability (split bookings)
  • Optional allocation of parts of allotments to individual agencies or different products
  • Management of reservations for periods where flights are not yet able to be booked
  • PNR import via CSV list

Your Advantages
  • Individual application, e.g. for:
    • Cruise companies
    • (Group-) Tour Operators
    • Airlines
  • Time and cost savings in the administration and sale of your allotments
  • Provision as a Software-as-a-Service Solution: no hardware, software or cost of operation
