“We searched long and hard to identify the perfect booking engine for our luxury boutique hotel.  We needed something that reflected our values and that could be discreet, flexible and above all dynamic in the fast changing travel industry.  Availpro has always exceeded our expectations and is backed up with an excellent support team willing and able to resolve any issues at quick notice.”

    • Tell us about your hotels
      Both properties are located in a beautiful hillside location with stunning views of the ocean and the city of Funchal. Since it was acquired by the Blandy family in 1885, successive generations have managed the transition from traditional farming to leisure based activities.This strong tradition of hospitality and quality continues in all areas today, from golf and the hotel to the gardens and flower business; from real estate to property management and even the sports motor cruiser. The names of Blandy and Palheiro are synonymous with quality on Madeira Island and beyond.
    • How long have you been working with Availpro? Why did you decide to choose them?
      We have been working with Availpro since February 2013. There was very little on the market that suited our needs at a competitive price.  The product also came recommended by trusted friends in the industry.
    • What was the biggest impact on your business after selecting Availpro as your partner?
      Flexibility, dynamic pricing strategies.
    • What are the main benefits of Availpro?
      Flexible possibilities to add on relevant new potential tools as the market develops.  And the ability to cancel them at short notice if they turn out to be less effective than first thought!
    • If you were to recommend Availpro to another hotel, what would you say about them?
      A good dynamic flexible company with competitive pricing structure, as well as good back-up service.
