Travelport has announced the renewal of an agreement with Travel Leaders Corporate for GDS services through 2015. The move follows the January 2010, Travelport renewal of its agreement as the preferred GDS provider to Travel Leaders Franchise Group, part of Travel Leaders Group.
“This new agreement is a reflection of the confidence we have in Travelport’s content, technology and dedicated support, which we believe is clearly a leader in the industry and can add to the growth of Travel Leaders Corporate,” said David Holyoke, president, Travel Leaders Corporate. “Travelport delivers functionality and advanced technology that are crucial to our success and enable our agents to increase productivity and efficiency.”
"Travelport is pleased to continue to be a primary technology provider and preferred GDS partner for Travel Leaders,” said Scott Hyden, vice president, U.S. Sales, Travelport GDS. “We are especially delighted to deliver the technology solutions that Travel Leaders Corporate needs to grow and succeed.“
The Travelport deal provides Travel Leaders Corporate with industry leading Travelport e-Pricing, which provides fast access to the most competitive fares available, and the broadest choices, both critical to a travel agency’s ability to meet the demands of today’s travelers for value, speed and price.
Powering the world’s major online travel retailers and leading travel providers, Travelport e-Pricing is capable of searching millions of fares and hundreds of thousands of itinerary options to find the lowest available fares and ensures airlines, consumers and travel agents get the information and choice they expect. The dynamic Travelport e-Pricing engine provides the most accurate fare searches and yields more comprehensive itinerary results from a growing universe of Travelport participating airlines.
Travel Leaders Corporate can further increase efficiency through the use of Travelport Rapid Reprice, an automated ticket repricing product that automatically recalculates the price of a ticket in a fraction of the time it takes to recalculate manually.
Rapid Reprice automatically integrates fare and rule categories for voluntary changes, net fares, private fares and fare by-rule from ATPCO filed fares. A significant decrease in the instances of airline debit memos can be expected due to the product’s superior data integrity and repricing accuracy.
