Compass Direct ensure hotel options are always available to your participants. Direct access to consumer hotel inventory can be provided within your existing Compass Web App—without a hotel contract—either alongside your hotel block, or after it sells out.
There are two parts to this course:
1. Building a Meeting that will only have Compass Direct Hotels (Internet Only).
2. Adding/Turning On Compass Direct (Internet Only Hotels) for a meeting that is either Sold out or passed Cut off. The functionality to 'turn on' Compass Direct Hotels (formerly referred to as GDS Hotels) allows onPeak to accommodate guests that contact us in need of rooms after cut-off of contracted hotels.
There are many locations in Compass that refer to Compass Direct/Web Rates in other ways: Internet Hotels (Timeline) Affiliate Hotels (External Services). When communicating with clients about these services: We call it Web Rates. Otherwise, technically speaking; we set up Compass Direct internally in order for Web Rates to appear externally.
