GDS Connect

For hotels seeking to tap beyond the local travel marketplace, global connectivity is vital. However, this isn“t easy. There are countless number of buyers (such as Travel Agents and Corporates) and sellers (your competitor hotels, resorts, serviced apartments, hostels, etc.) that are a part of the global hospitality niche.

In this competitive and confusing scenario, the GDS network has surfaced as the undisputed answer. Hotels that are plugged into the GDS are ensured of their room nights being distributed across the biggest hotel booking resource. However, the GDS interface can be very challenging for hoteliers. The sheer volume of Travel Agents and competing hotels means that managing your room nights across the GDS can be very time consuming.

Hotelogix has solved this issue too. Its uncomplicated interface ensures that your rooms are distributed regionally, nationally and internationally without any issues. Hotelogix connects you to the four, major GDSs:

  1. Amadeus
  2. Sabre
  3. Galileo
  4. Worldspan

Real-time unified distribution system was important for us to increase bookings. We were looking for an integration with the powerful interface of GDS [which covers services from Galileo, Worldspan, Sabre and Amadeus] and a channel manager. In this context we found only Hotelogix to be perfect.

What is GDS?

GDS or the Global Distribution System is also referred to as the Global Electronic System in the Travel & Hospitality sector. It connects buyers, providers and suppliers. Today, the travel marketplace has transformed into a global arena with thousands of buyers (like travel agents and corporates) and providers (like hotels, resorts, airlines, car rental companies) working together and competing to deliver services to the ultimate buyer "The Traveler".

Why is GDS important to hoteliers/property owners like you?

GDS provides instant, real-time access to a hotel’s information. This essentially includes room inventory and the published rates/packages. Nearly every major travel and hotel-booking portal is connected to the GDS. There are nearly 100,000 portals connected to the GDS with more than 600,000 Travel Agents around the world having access to it. Thus, the GDS is the most dependable medium for ensuring your hotel’s exposure to the online market.

International exposure on the Amadeus, Sabre, Galileo and Worldspan networks provides an invaluable boost to your hotel’s international distribution capability apart from boosting its regional and local presence. Thanks to next-generation seamless connectivity, travel agents can immediately check your hotel’s rates, room availability and valuable traveler information like photos of your hotel’s facilities and its surroundings. Using such information, travel agents can deliver confirmed reservations to you!
