Welcome to the future of planning travel.

BookDirect - guiding travelers directly to hotelsOn April 1, 2010 we will unveil our new hotel search engine – BookDirect. This state-of-the-art hotel booking engine operates on a basic premise – saving you time and money. BookDirect allows you to easily search hotels across the area from one source – (timesaver) – and then book directly with the hotel (money savings).

How it Works

The BookDirect system at automatically pulls in the daily rates from all hotel Web sites throughout Louisiana and centralizes them into a one-stop shopping experience for you. You can then pick where you want to stay and easily book directly with the hotel. Below is a sample of the new & improved booking process.

How BookDirect Works

Why You Save Money

BookDirect allows you to book your reservation directly with the hotel. So, what does this mean to you? By going directly to the hotel to complete your reservation, you are not charged any additional GDS fees or travel agency commission. You also avoid the long line of third-party commission fees.

Sample Online Travel Agency Reservation

A standard online travel agency Web site assigns additional booking fees onto a room reservation. Below is an example of a third-party hotel booking engine. These fees start at approximately 18% of the value of the reservation and can range to 30% or more.

Why You Save Money With BookDirect – BookDirect Reservation System

With the new system, you go straight from to the hotel's Web site to complete your reservation. This allows you to bypass costly third-party hotel commissions that are added onto your room rate. - BookDirect Reservation System
