Amadeus GDS

Amadeus GDS

From a home-based agency in Carolina to the leading online player in Australia. From a high-touch high-service travel management company in Dubai to a destination specialist in Japan. From leisure agencies across Latin America to bright travel start-ups in South Africa….We connect you to a unique travel marketplace to do business all over the world. So you can sell the right room and the right property at the right rate to the right guest in any market, anywhere.
 
In fact we have the biggest global footprint of any of the GDSs (Global Distribution Systems).  That’s millions of potential guests that you might not reach otherwise. From discerning leisure travelers seeking unique experiences, to budget-conscious  families, to an enormous global population of high-rate, high-volume, high-yield business travelers. 
 
First we connect with you:
It’s pretty simple: If you have a Central Reservation System (CRS) we can connect our GDS to it either directly or via a ‘Switch’ company. Once you’re connected, potential bookers can see the exact same rates and availability as on your CRS. If you don’t have a CRS or cannot support a GDS-CRS connection we can connect you via our Amadeus LinkHotel representation service. 
 
Then we help you get the basics in place:
  • Compelling hotel descriptions in local language, reliable geocoding and mapping, full amenities and services catalog and photos
  • Clear and consistent dynamic information when and where it’s needed on pricing, stay policies, commission levels, BAR guarantees and more.
  • Negotiated rates: we  provide tools and support to make sure you get this right and can be fully compliant with all of your corporate and agency contract commitments
(Plus some Cool stuff: we can help you switch on things like cross selling capabilities between your properties, Best Available Rate indicators, multi-room bookings, preferential placement on our shopping displays and more…)
 
And that’s it.
You’ve just opened a new window to the world for your hotels. No creation or maintenance of additional databases – just 100% accuracy and consistency and 100% travel agency confidence on your hotel as it appears on Amadeus.
 
How does it all happen for our bookers?
We give bookers solutions that are tailored by channel and segment from B2C online booking engines to high-productivity applications for mega-agencies; from intuitive interfaces for high-turnover leisure call centers to in-house tools for the employees of major corporations. All of these are powered by intelligent search engines so bookers can see, find and book the hotels they want with super response times. And because we have built the definitive hotels marketplace, once users’ book on Amadeus, they come back to book again and again and again…
