What is GDS?

 

Global Distribution System (GDS) is the brain of the travel industry. It is a computerized network system that provides real-time information to companies such as airlines, hotels, car rental, and travel agencies. Each of these sectors uses GDS to view real-time inventory of services offered in the travel industry.

For example, using GDS, a travel agency can find the availability of hotel rooms, flight seats, or cars on behalf of their clients and book through the same GDS. 

A GDS system also gives travel agents access to travel data that will help them compare prices and facilities that different airlines, car rentals, and hotels offer to ensure that they come up with the best deal for their clients.

However, professionals or tech experts are needed to run and understand the GDS system properly. The three most effective and important GDS systems universally are Amadeus, Sabre, and Galileo, and all GDS professionals are well versed with these platforms.

To save costs and be connected to a GDS in a systematic way a travel agent can also sign up with platforms like Travelopro which helps travel companies both big and small and independent travel agents create their online presence.

How Does A Global Distribution System Work?

 

how-to-choose-a-gds-global-distribution-system-for-your-travel-business

 

Global distribution systems are an intermediary between vendors, such as hotels and airlines, and service providers, such as online travel agencies. While most big GDSs are linked to the major travel agencies, smaller, less expensive GDSs may offer a limited number of travel agencies.

Vendors sign up and link their own inventory to a global distribution system. Once linked, customers can use the different portals associated with the GDS to purchase from a vendor. To avoid overbooking, each service provider receives real-time updated inventory from the airline or hospitality company (vendor).

Not only do vendors show their inventory, but they can automatically update products and rates. This allows vendors to use a dynamic pricing method that immediately changes over all of their portals.

 

How important is GDS to travel agents ?

 

  • Travel agents or agencies use the GDS system to search for the best option in terms of travel, hotel accommodations.

  • GDS system also supports travel websites like Booking.com, Trip Advisor, etc.

  • GDS provides important features like Airfare searches, availability, connectivity, policies, etc.

  • Travel agents/agencies now use more sophisticated GDS systems to search for the best available option be it an airline or hotel reservations.

  • With the help of the GDS system, travel agents/ agencies can complete their search and book within minutes.
