You are back to acting like a spastic if you think you need any major IT skills to book a hotel.Back to me not understanding the bee in your bonnet. You don't like the idea of a centralised booking service, MOD needs one, not everyone can book their own travel (not just hotels). We've done a very non-scientific test and theres little difference between CHBS and booking.com. You've then said you can get it cheaper using google which implies even more IT ability. It's also like saying the sky is blue. There will always be a cheaper way.
So based on the fact that some people are good at finding cheap rooms on the internet, and screw the MOD management information requirements, and because NATO does, we should bin any form of centralised booking service and let a theoretical maximum of 250000 people go it alone?
There you go again lying about 250000. That's like saying the army welfare system could have to deal with a theoretical maximum of 80000 soldiers.
Everyone I know who has used both systems says booking their own hotel is much simpler than using the CHBS. Obviously though, those people aren't spastics and know how to use Google.
