United Vacations launches VAX system for UK

United Airlines holiday brand United Vacations has launched its first UK trade-only website in a move to give travel agents control over bookings and commission levels.

The site – Uvagents.co.uk and known as Vax Vacation Access – will allow agents to book flights, accommodation, car hire and sightseeing tours across North America.

It has been developed by US technology firm Trisept Solutions, a sister company of United Vacations that powers a string of major tour operator engines for the US.

Targeting the trade in the UK will give United Vacations an in-road into the busy North American market and allow agents to tap into the company’s so-called virtual brochures and its range of flight schedules to London Heathrow with BMI.

“United Vacations VAX is way ahead of the old Viewdata systems, still used by mass-market operators,” the company said.

“Among its innovations, VAX empowers agents to set (and modify) their commission levels. They can vary both the total selling price and their own percentage, giving them that vital edge over their competitors.”

The VAX system will also include a multi-booking and dynamic packaging function across its portfolio of 200 North American destinations, alongside the Ski Freedom adventure holiday package deals.
