GDS System

GDS System

 

Travelopro Global Distribution System (GDS) is a computerized network system. It is a large computer network which is integrated with 100s of worldwide Airlines and consolidators for enabling transactions between travel agents and travel sites and also used by airlines, hotels, car rentals, railways and buses. Our GDS mainly uses real-time inventory to service providers (vendors). It is also called Automated Reservation System (ARS) or Computerized Reservation System (CRS).
 
GDS stands for Global Distribution System and it is basically a central reservation system enables travel agencies and their clients to access travel data, shop for and compare reservations options and book travel. It is an online system or network that functions across the globe and connects the travel service providers or vendors to the travel agencies in real-time, by providing a centralized service that covers the bookings of airlines tickets, car rental, hotel rooms and more.  It allows travel agents to access, in real-time, availability, feature and prices for hotels, airlines, rental car companies, and additional travel services worldwide. The influential global distribution systems are Amadeus, Sabre, Galileo, and Worldspan. This allows users to buy tickets from various providers or different airlines. GDS can link services, rates, and bookings that combine a variety of products and services in all three travel sectors: e.g., airline bookings, hotel reservations, and car rentals. Early customers of the Global Distribution System are travel agents and travel companies (web and office-based) to place orders on various reservation systems run by vendors. Independent travel agents, travel agencies and online agents are now using an increasingly sophisticated GDS system to find the best travel and accommodation and rates for their clients. The agent will make airline and hotel bookings (in real-time) for clients, and they will complete their research and booking within minutes. Travel Agencies have traditionally relied on GDS for services, products & rates to provide travel-related services to end consumers. GDS combines booking, tariffs, and service & product consolidation in all travel sectors. It is also responsible for the growth of the travel industry. 
 
GDS system is one of the most important tools for the travel industry. Global Distribution Systems are server-hosted web services that offer deals in the reservation of travel products such as flights, hotels, transfers and vacation packages worldwide. A GDS system is a search-based system that allows users to search for travel products from suppliers around the world and the system will yield results with real-time pricing and availability comparisons. It is used to access for international airlines live data, worldwide hotel inventory, car rentals, and other travel-related services. Through such business platforms as the GDS System, OTA (Online Travel Agent) can access the inventory of hotels, airlines, car rentals reservations in real-time. Users can book and process the travel offers that best fit their needs. Online travel agencies and customers around the world use GDS-integrated travel software to book the travel services they need. The GDS system enables automated transactions between travel service providers/vendors and travel agencies. The travel agencies use the services and products to provide travel-related services to the end consumers. It deals with worldwide data, rates, inventory, offers real-time availability of airlines, hotel rooms, car rental, and many more to make the booking easier for the operators and vendors alike. Now, the GDS systems run independently and their major subscribers are airlines and travel agencies. There are three major GDS in the market- Amadeus, Sabre, and Travelport (Galileo and Worldspan) in both B2B and B2C platforms. GDS distribution is one of the best ways to connect with the world of travel agents globally. There are over 650,000 plus travel agents connected via a GDS system booking multiple travel services from airline tickets, car rental, hotel rooms, sightseeing and more. GDS solutions have evolved much more and they continue to do so even more. Today, Global Distribution Systems allow users to buy tickets from multiple suppliers or different airlines. The Global Distribution System is also the back end of most Internet-based travel services. 
 
How Travelopro GDS system works?
 
Travelopro is a Global Brand trusted by many for its services for Worldwide GDS content, other products and services in order to provide travel-related services to the end consumers. Our GDS automated reservation system can integrate your services, rates and bookings consolidating products and services across all travel ecosystem.  We have partnered with the GDS systems globally are Travelport (Galileo, Apollo, and Worldspan), Amadeus and SABRE. 
 
GDS software developed by us typically offers whole suite of services for the OTAs, ranging from passenger service systems (PSSs) to revenue management systems (RMSs). The passenger name record (PNR) in the airline reservations system is maintained in the GDS system. If a passenger books an itinerary containing air segments of multiple airlines through a travel agency, the passenger name record in the GDS system would hold information on their entire itinerary, each airline can fly on would only have a portion of the itinerary that is relevant to them. This would contain flight segments on their own services and inbound and onward connecting flights of other airlines in the itinerary. 
 
Our Global distribution systems originated from a traditional legacy business model that existed to inter-operate between airline vendors and Travelopro. We invested heavily in our own reservations and direct-distribution channels and partner systems. This helps to minimize direct dependency on GDS systems to meet sales and revenue targets and allows for a more dynamic response to market needs. These technology advancements of our solutions facilitate an easier way to cross-sell to partner airlines and via travel agents, eliminating the dependency on multiple third party solutions federating between systems.
