New booking platform achieves best hotel prices

June 29, 2017 Technology No Comments Email Email

Has it ever happened that you are positive you found a great hotel offer but in a matter of hours, you come across a price lower than the one you paid? Studies show that when booking a hotel room, 40% of customers later discover that the same room, in the same hotel, for the same dates, has a cheaper price somewhere else. Such price differences can be up to 50% of the total amount of the reservation!

A new online platform, that is rapidly expanding worldwide, gives us the solution to ensure we get the best hotel deal even if you have already made the reservation.

How was Pruvo Created?

“Our CEO, Itai Marcipar, booked a hotel for his family vacation. A few weeks later, he entered the booking platform to upgrade his hotel room. To his amazement, he saw that the same hotel room, in the same hotel, same dates in the same platform he booked on was 35% cheaper than it was when it was booked. After conducting a study of hundreds of other hotel reservations and investigating online, he discovered that this phenomenon occurs 40% of the time with hotel reservations, and that is what motivated him to start Pruvo,” says Mr. Nadivi.

Pruvo is a totally free online service. Initially, the client makes a reservation using the booking method of his desire (directly with the hotel, travel agency, Booking.com, Hotels.com, Trivago, Expedia and hundreds more). The important thing is that the reservation has the free cancellation option.

The customer forwards the email confirmation to save@pruvo.net. Upon receiving a reservation, Pruvo starts a search to see if it finds a cheaper price than the customer has booked. If Pruvo encounters a cheaper price, the customer will receive a notification with the instructions to make the new, cheaper reservation and cancel the “old”, more expensive reservation. If your reservation was paid for in advance, you will get a refund of the total amount of the initial booking. This automated system is free and allows you to effectively save both money and time when planning vacations

In its first year of operation, Pruvo has saved more than $78,000 for its customers with their hotel reservations.

How does it work?

Step 1: Reserve your hotel with any platform you desire You can use any search engines, travel agencies and directly with the hotel. When you find your desired hotel, make a reservation. Make sure that the reservation was booked with the free cancellation option.

Step 2: Send Pruvo your email confirmation of your reservation Once you receive your email reservation confirmation from your hotel, forward it to save@pruvo.net so that Pruvo can start tracking the exact details of your reservation through other hotel search engines.

Step 3: Once Pruvo will send an email notification once it finds a better price If Pruvo finds a better offer, you will receive an email that lets you know how much the savings are and the indications to obtain the better deal

Step 4 – Make a new reservation and cancel the anterior one Pruvo will redirect you to the platform to make your new reservation where they found a better price for the same room, same dates in the same hotel. Once you are done with the new reservation.

Pruvo has made quite an impact on the industry, and within 1 year, it has saved for its customers more than AUD$103,000. Here are some of the examples:
