Travel Outlook is an innovative off-site central reservations office (CRO) service, and we seamless integrate artificial intelligence to ensure that our agents are performing at the highest possible level. We can flexibly serve as your reservations department, or as an overflow/after-hours service, and we can also answer your front desk calls, restaurant calls, spa calls, golf calls, or group business calls. 

Our management team has more than fifty years of hotel management experience, and our team is proven to convert more calls to confirmed bookings and to close them at a higher average daily rate.  We do this while creating an initial feeling of professionalism and courtesy for the hotel in the mind of the guest, setting the stage for higher ratings in sites such as TripAdvisor®.

  Please take a moment to review a list of some of our current valued clients.


We are the only call center to be certified by the Kennedy Training Network, and using this system we close up to 70% of the qualified reservations calls we receive.

For several years, the Kennedy Training Network (KTN) has been our industry’s finest source of training for up-to-the-minute sales techniques.  Travel Outlook uses a proprietary 26-step sales process that was developed in conjunction with Forbes and KTN, and we call it Luxury Quest.  Consistent use of Luxury Quest allows us to achieve higher sales conversion and to reach for a higher ADR. 

Our proprietary AI-powered call center software “checks off” each step from Luxury Quest as the system “hears” the agent say it, and a missed step remains on the screen until the agent completes it.  The software also assists agents with objection handling, presents upsell opportunities, and loads on-screen guidance cards with relevant information at the agent’s fingertips. Using AI, we auto-score our agent adherence to Luxury Quest, calls so that at the end of each day we can isolate agents that need direction and retraining.  We use AI to score every call, every agent, every hotel, every day.

We would love to prepare a proposal for your hotel, and to perhaps design a no-obligation beta test of our service. References are readily available, and we can provide numbers for you to use to test-call our team.
