ELECTRONIC REGISTRATION – HOW TO PRINT THE DISCOVERY CARD
The registration is based on the police law. Our booking system is called Deskline and comes from the company Feratel. If you rent your holiday home through us, we will give you access to the WebClient of feratel/Deskline, with which you can maintain the data of your holiday home.
The system will then generate the new, personal guest cards. The cards are not transferable. Free templates for reproducing printable versions are obtainable from Obergoms Tourismus AG at the tourist offices Oberwald, Münster and Reckingen. We will send annual guest cards along with the bill for the annual flat rate. They can only be issued using the registered information. If you want to order a new annual guest card or if you’ve received a card you do not need, please get in touch with Obergoms Tourismus AG.
If you do not have the means to print the guest card (no printer or wifi access), you can ask the tourist offices Oberwald, Münster or Reckingen during their opening hours to print the card for you. We would be pleased if you send us the data in advance by e-mail so that we can prepare the desired "discovery passports". The guest cards or registration can also be done beforehand and are then sent along with the register confirmation and the rental agreement.
If you are responsible for more than one object, you can apply for administrator’s access.
Deskline is our reservation system. We offer various interfaces for online platforms and booking websites. Guests have the chance to book their vacations without having to spend a lot of time in waiting queues to check availabilities. A central «collection point» for all relevant data is advantageous because it helps prevent misinformation and enhances data quality. This will make it a lot easier for landlords or hotel managements to administer their offers on the big internet «market» place.
Guests’ behaviour today requires service providers to rethink existing processes. Spontaneous or last-minute bookings, shorter dwelling time and new technologies call for a flexible and professional booking system. The Upper Valais, from Brig to Oberwald, has decided to implement the Deskline System. The contact agency for all service providers of Obergoms (Oberwald to Niederwald) is Obergoms Tourismus AG.
The system is user friendly and does not generate any commission costs for providers of accommodation. As of 01 November 2019, an annual fee will be charged for processing and support in the reservation system:
- Apartments "bookable online" (incl. MeldeClient) à CHF 100.00
- Apartments "on request" (incl. MeldeClient) à CHF 180.00
- Hotel "bookable online" (incl. MeldeClient) à CHF 50.00
- Hotel "on request" (incl. MeldeClient) à CHF 90.00
The tourism organisations rely on active support of staff of hotels and accommodation providers to ensure the functionality of the system. Only regular updates of contingents and prices, as well as bookable objects in Deskline, facilitate direct booking for our guests. Nowadays, guests are used to look for accommodation online and change websites immediately if there are no availabilities. Our staff at Obergoms Tourismus AG are happy to help and answer the questions of all hoteliers and accommodation providers concerning the reservation system Deskline.
