Traveltek is delighted to support new online travel platform Envirotels in their mission to reduce and offset travel-related carbon emissions
Newly launched start-up Envirotels has partnered with travel technology specialists Traveltek to launch a new website, giving customers the ability to search and book hotels and flights and to offset their carbon emissions. For each booking made on the site, they plant trees in the Amazon Rainforest to offset the associated CO2 emissions.
In addition to offering traditional online booking services such as hotels and flights, Envirotels provide eco-friendly travel information and best practices for the eco-conscious traveller.
Utilizing the Traveltek API, customers can filter and choose to stay in properties based on their sustainability practices.
The new site due to launch mid-June was developed and designed by Envirotels, utilizing the Traveltek API to search for hotels. Envirotels is also using Traveltek’s core agent booking systems iSell and iBos to launch their travel proposition in the US market.
When selecting a tech partner for the job, William Rademacher, Founder Envirotels said: “Being a start-up niche OTA, I wanted to find the perfect partner to work with to provide us with hotel inventory. I looked at many options, and Traveltek stood out as not just providing a superior API but most importantly, a personalized support mechanism for us as we worked through development. Since conception over six months ago, Traveltek has worked with my team and me to ensure that we were ready to launch our platform, providing a seamless customer experience. We have had many specialized requirements during this time, and I cannot fault Traveltek in terms of their service, product, and flexibility. Perhaps most importantly, Traveltek gives my company the ability to add features seamlessly without having to add additional parties. Very soon, Envirotels will add flights, activities and transfers all through the Traveltek API.”
Commenting on the project, Traveltek VP Sales for North America, Kevin Walker, said: “We are delighted to support a new start-up in the US market with our API product for which we see a growing demand. Along with our award-winning iSell and iBos products. At this moment in time, it is nice to be able to celebrate good news, and the topic of more eco-friendly and sustainable travel is certainly very relevant. Envirotels are now well placed for when the market returns”.
