creative e-commerce ideas?

I was hoping to get some insight on the following:

I'm in the process of setting up a site in which revolves around advertising for resort accommodations in my area. Originally, the idea was to have an exclusive contract with a accommodations company where I would book reservations garnered through my site.
(I would charge the customer the rack rate for a room and pay the accommodations provider. Following, the provider would send me back a 10% commission.)
However, now I am trying to devise a system where I could simply forward the prospect inquiries from my site and have the accommodations provider handle the information requests and reservation details. The problem is that I have no idea what would be the best way to go about this? And is there any type of system that would provide some sort of checks and balances where I would be able to determine if a customer who was forwarded to them decided to actually make reservations.

I would love to get any and all ideas. Thanks so much for your time.

Sounds like you're working your way towards an affiliate type system.

Have a read in the "advertising and affiliate marketing forum". I know there are a number of affiliates here to deal in accommodation.
