The world of hotel bookings is very competitive, with many hotels struggling to gain competitive advantage over the very expensive intermediaries / OTAs.
Four years ago Avvio created allora.ai, the worlds first ever AI powered hotel booking engine with the purpose of ensuring your hotel’s direct website becomes the biggest channel for attracting bookings by bringing personalisation into your hotel website.
allora.ai unlocks the power of data science and predictive personalisation, ensuring a curated brand experience at every stage of the guest journey.
Our mission is the help you be more successful and more profitable by driving maximum bookings via your own direct website. We believe that through technology every hotel can have its direct website as its biggest single channel for attracting bookings.

allora.ai reacts to the likelihood of website abandonment and will provide custom messages to keep the guest on your website.
Blended Room Rates
Rate blending is a technique mainly championed by Online Travel Agents (OTA’s). allora.ai allows you to do the same, whereby you derive a single lowest price across multiple rates to allow the guest to avail discount on their total length of stay that
a) would not be available if booking across single rate or
b) requires two or more bookings
Real time management of your cancellation policies.
Closed User Groups
Closed User Groups allow potential guests to input their email address at the point of search, with the intention of unlocking discounts on available rates or allowing them access to other hidden rates that you have provided, just for them.
What is a Closed User Group?
Avvio allows you to display Closed User Group rates on the booking engine. This allows potential guests to input their email address at the point of search with the intention of unlocking discounted or incentivized rates or allowing them access to Member-only rates.
How can that be useful to me?
Clauses in OTA contracts may in many cases prevent hoteliers from offering rates that are below those available on third-party OTA sites. One way to avoid rate parity rules is to offer discounted rates to closed user groups. By encouraging users to provide their email address, they can be considered a part of a closed user group and the hotelier is free to offer additional incentives or price discounts that would not otherwise be available to the general public.

This gives you an up-selling and cross-selling ability by tailoring inclusions during the booking process or, at any time pre-check-in.
Early Check-In / Late Check-Out
You can now apply Early Check In and/or Late Check Out to all rooms at your property.
