IRM.Net Travel Agent Access & Booking
RDP offers the optional Internet Reservation
Module (IRM.Net) to allow travel agents and wholesalers to check rates
and availability and make reservations 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
If the agent has an e-mail address, they can log into the IRM.Net to make reservations from any
computer on the Internet.
Some of our customers have really outdone themselves with their marketing
site in conjunction with IRM.Net. To see some customer websites that
really look great and to see what IRM.Net can do for your business, see

Process is as Easy as 1 - 2 - 3
The process of making a reservation for travel agents is easy. There are
seven steps even with complicated situations.
A travel agent master must be created or exist in RDPWin. Agents
log into the IRM.Net using their agent number or their
e-mail address. A password must be entered which is stored on the
agent master in RDPWin.
- The agent accesses the IRM.Net portal. A direct
link can be set up on your marketing site to direct travel agents
to the portal using a hyperlink (IRMNet/login.aspx?logintype=ta). The same can be done for groups
- Select dates, enter the number of people, and any
- When Search for Availability is clicked, available rooms are listed.
Links can be configured in RDPWin to show the availability calendar:
Specific room details:
- Once Reserve is clicked, and if the Virtual Store is installed, various
extras can be chosen by the agent for the guest.
- Click Continue after selecting any activities from the Virtual Store to
finalize the reservation. Contact information and payment details are
required. Click Make Reservation to complete the process.
- The system files the reservation and
displays a confirmation screen. The agent can then print the
confirmation, view their reservation history, log out, or make another
Reporting & Commissions
RDPWin's various reports show
total revenue generated by each agent on a daily, month-to-date and
year-to-date basis, with comparisons to last year. Travel agents can
pre-deduct their commission, or the system can print a commission check.
Unique rates can be established for each travel agent or wholesaler.
Additionally, room blocks can be allocated to specific wholesalers, varying
each day of the year.
Custom Agent Screen After Agent Login
The IRM.net can be set up to display a custom screen for each agent after the
login step. When an agent-specific file exists in /Custom/..../UserText/Agents,
then the IRM.net displays it upon login with a Continue button below it. Click the
Continue button to proceed to reservations. There is only one agent-specific file location, so the file should be named <AGENTNUM>.htm, for example
