All Room Type and Rate Plan allocations to Agent Channels are listed and managed in SETUP | RELATIONSHIPS | AGENT RELATIONSHIPS.  The default screen of Agent Relationships displays the details of your Agent Channels:  Agent ID, Agent Type, Agent Name, Number of Rooms Allocated, Commission percentage and Rate Loading percentage.

Agents are both traditional 'Travel Agents' and 'Channels' of distribution. This reduces confusion and allows one to think of an 'agent' as a business partner who sells rooms at unique prices and/or allocations. This area allows you to print Agent reports, view an agent's booking history, or make payments to the Agent.

You can also publish your rooms at special 'agent prices' and assign them a percentage (%) of any of your room inventory.

For example: You might choose to 'load' (increase) your default rates by 10% to a specific Agent, and only sell the agent 40% of a specific Room Type. When the Agent went to their special web address, they would see 10% higher prices and only 40% of the available rooms.



When you click on Agent Relationships, a list with all of your Agent Channels is displayed with the following information.

  • Agent I.D.: The I.D. given to the Agent (Set by default for Master Agents and Net Rate Agents. Agent I.D. created in Agents will appear as MyPMS Agents). See My Agents
  • Agent Type: Type of Agent setup in the system. See Agent Types for more details.
  • Agent Name: Name of Agent (Set by default for Master Agents and Net Rate Agents. Agent names created in Agents will appear as MyPMS Agents). See My AgentsRooms Allocated: The number of Room Type and Rate Plan combinations you have allocated to the channel. See
