GDS Distribution

GDS or Global Distribution Systems refer to the reservation tool travel agents use when making an air, hotel, car or other travel service booking. And not only do GDSs power the content of ‘traditional’ travel agency platforms, they also provide pricing, availability and reservation functionality to many online travel agencies.

Amadeus LinkHotel distributes your hotel content to the world’s four GDS: Amadeus, Galileo, Sabre and Worldspan, generating an instant, captive audience of 490,000* travel sellers!

The connections Amadeus LinkHotel have built between each hotel company’s central reservation system (CRS) and the GDS are so advanced that travel agents and corporations can view hotel room rates and availability in real-time, and make a booking in a matter of seconds.
