Stop sales is the act of blocking the booking of certain vehicles or hotel rooms on distribution channels for a specific period. It is mainly used in the car rental and hotel industry. The reason for stopping sales can be that the service is already fully booked. But companies also use it as a strategy, leaving open only the most profitable channels.
In Car Rental Gateway, the tool allows brokers to suspend the sale of certain types of rental vehicles of specific suppliers at specific branches, locations or countries for specified periods. Brokers themselves manage these limitations in Gateway’s Office Interface.
