Online Bookings


Online, Self-Booking Tool

At BSI, we have ensured that our online technology marries the user-friendly expectations of consumers with the policy control, cost management and traveller tracking needs of public sector procurement.

BSIDirect™ is a 100% Internet-based self-booking tool (SBT) – accessible through Microsoft™ Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox and Opera Apple Mac applications. It is the web interface of the in-house reservation system used by our agents. Therefore, hotel rate and availability is mirrored across offline and online booking environments.

Benefits include:


Cost Control: Varying levels of policy enforcement such as rate caps can be set by authorised client administrators, allowing clients to specify maximum spend limits and other policy rules. Choice can be limited to those hotels where clients have negotiated discounted rates for you and other public sector clients. The option to allow an element of personalisation to mirror the customer’s own culture can also yield strong policy management and cost control.

Greater choice & flexibility: Proven system capability to integrate with multiple distribution channels of hotel rate and facilities data including direct connectivity with suppliers, GDS, BSI secure room allocations, Internet rates and free-sale agreements.

Convenience for travellers and travel arrangers: The simple, user-friendly, intuitive user experience is proven to drive adoption levels, as the booking channel of choice for overnight stays, long stays, group bookings and event meetings. Users also have 24 hour support if they require assistance with the tool.

Customer security and duty of care: Standards are built into the tool including employee tracking, minimum standards, health & safety and a customer-specific ‘property comment’ function akin to ‘rate my stay’.

Comprehensive property information and mapping: In order for users to make an informed choice about their venue and hotel accommodation, we feature a direct link to venue / hotel information with map, textual and pictorial details. In order to clearly identify the location of the venue or hotel, the search results can be plotted to a map and the confirmation notice will contain a link to the hotel.

Small Meetings Online: End-to-end online venue bookings for simple meetings

Online management information: All data captured as part of the booking can be reported upon with M.I. available via BSIDirect™.

Watch a demonstration: We are very proud of BSIDirect™ and we believe it leads the market in delivering not only online hotel bookings, but also internal meeting space management and external venue sourcing.
