GDS Connectivity by Vertical Booking
GDS (Global Distribution System) is an IT system used by Travel Agents to book flight
tickets, hotels, cars and cruises.
At present there are about 500,000 travel agents using GDS. In addition to these
travel agents, hundreds of on-line booking websites also use the data to sell
There are 4 GDSs worldwide: Sabre, Amadeus, Galileo and Worldspan
The Vertical Booking CRS features integrated GDS connectivity with code OK (Alesia Distribution).
The advantages of Alesia Distribution integrated GDS connectivity are:
- complete integration in the booking engine makes it very easy to use
- rates and availabilities (promotional, negotiated and corporate) only need to
be updated on Vertical Booking.
GDS connectivity can be integrated with a PMS, a WBE/CRS or a DMS through XML interfaces (see
API for PMS, WBE/CRS, DMS)
What are you waiting for? Do not waste any more time and ask about becoming an OK hotel!
If your hotel is already represented on a GDS, Vertical Booking can interface
with the technical platform already in use or can request a switch from the previous
provider with the option of keeping all property codes and all GDS descriptions.
