Amtrak to Launch International Direct Sales System

Travel agents and tour operators in 40 countries will soon be able to purchase Amtrak train tickets through a new web-based booking system. RailAgent, developed by Wandrian, will directly connect agents to Amtrak's own reservation system. Amtrak is now inviting agents to register for the system that will become operational at the beginning of 2007. RailAgent will streamline the worldwide distribution of Amtrak's rail products, allowing international travel professionals to book tickets and passes in real time, print ticket information for the first time, and receive higher commissions than before.
