Amadeus to launch a new solution for agents to book hotel consolidator content
Amadeus has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Transhotel to improve travel agents' access to Transhotel content.
Amadeus is developing a solution to integrate hotel consolidator content in a new product within the Amadeus Selling Platform, the company's travel agency point of sale. The solution will provide seamless access to this content.
Transhotel's inventory of 50,000 hotels will be available through the solution when it is launched later this year.
The solution also ensures upfront payment of commissions for Transhotel bookings. The solution will be piloted in selected markets during the month of March and will be available to travel agencies soon after that.
Ian Wheeler, VP – marketing, Amadeus said, "By signing agreements with hotel consolidators we are able to make a number of independent hotels available to travel agents with all the efficiency and reliability associated with our distribution system."
