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 rooms.

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.
