travel technology?

What is GDS System?

GDS System is a computerized network that facilitates
transactions between travel service providers and travel agents. The Global
Distribution System reaches a large number of markets as one GDS is connected
via B2B, B2C, B2E, and B2B2C markets. GDS system's primary customers are mainly
travel agents, who are either following the OTA model or using web-based
software to connect to GDS. GDS can be integrated by a professional travel
portal development company into any travel website.

GDS System is a primary reservation tool for travel agents.
GDS is a network that enables travel agencies and their clients to access
travel data, shop for and compare reservation options and book travel. Travel GDS provides real-time links to online
booking software platforms, B2B B2C portals, and meta-search engines. It holds
no inventory, rather it’s an aggregation and distribution platform. With the
travel GDS system, a travel agent can book flights, hotels, attractions,
sightseeing, transfers, and car rental services. The four main GDS providers in
the travel industry are Amadeus, Sabre, Galileo, and Worldspan helping travel
agents growing the volume of travel transactions.

A GDS (global distribution systems) are computerized
network systems owned by the leading travel technology companies like Amadeus,
Travelport, and Sabre. GDS System provides a single point of access for
consolidated travel inventory and pricing. It helps customers to display the
inventory data, maintained through a schedule distribution system of TripFro
via standardized B2C/B2B channels.

Travel GDS systems enable transactions between travel
agencies, DMCs, and corporate agencies and providers such as airlines, hotels,
car rentals, transfers providers, cruise and sightseeing providers. Travel GDS
platforms consolidate the inventory, availability, pricing, and will desire
details and grant access to agents, OTAs, IBEs, and other channels.

Importance of GDS System for Travel Agency and Tour
Operator

Travel agents or agencies use the GDS system to search
for the best travel and hotel accommodation options. The global distribution
system allows travel companies to provide their customers with an end-to-end
number of attractive travel solutions and relevant data at affordable prices. The Global Distribution System is a tool for
travel agents that enables transactions between travel service providers and
travel agencies.

GDS mainly uses a real-time inventory to provide
services. Travel Agencies traditionally relied on GDS for services, products,
and rates in order to provide travel-related services to end-users. A GDS
combines bookings, rates, and consolidating services and products across all
the travel sectors. It is also responsible for the growth of the travel sector.

GDS into the booking engine system or the travel portal. Independent travel
agents, travel agencies, and online travel agents are now using an increasingly
sophisticated GDS system to find the best travel and accommodation and rates
for their clients.
