Carsolize is a SaaS travel booking software. A one-time license fee grants you access to the system, with fee-per-booking covering the software maintenance costs. You do need to have direct agreements with Hotel wholesalers, car rent brokers, GDS and other travel suppliers – which we then enable you to conveniently manage from within a single travel booking software, and distribute your products via B2C, B2B, and B2B2C (affiliate) sales channels.
Carsolize is one of the most-recently developed travel booking software platforms.

Not only but also, Carsolize travel software provides you with an instant ability to distribute your products via three channels: B2C (your own website with a booking engine), B2B (a complete booking solution for your agents), and finally a B2B2C – the ability to create your very own affiliate network.
