New supplier connections between Travelport and companies like Booking.com and Hertz, are bringing additional content to travel retailers on Travelport+. Accessible now are more options for accommodation rates and car rentals.
Travelport-connected agencies can also expect to gain access to more options from Air France-KLM and Lufthansa Group NDC content at the end of 2022. Furthermore, three new airlines will soon join the platform – Congo Airways, FlyGTA and US-Bangla Airlines.
The partnership with Booking.com unlocks a new range of rates across 140,000 hotel properties accessible through the Travelport+ platform, and will grow to over one million properties in early 2023. Travelport is working on standardising hotel content with more information and choices to create a smarter, simpler shopping experience.
Hertz pre-paid car rental rates is now offered to travel retailers, generating more revenue with car rentals booked through the platform.
In addition to an expanding travel content offering, Travelport is focused on making the process of managing exchanges even easier for agents using the Travelport+ platform.
Customers that have upgraded to Travelport+ will have access to Travelport’s next generation Automated Exchanges, which automates complex manual ticket-change tasks and simplifies trip management, thus lowering costs and saves valuable time for both agents and travellers.
Jen Catto, chief marketing officer, Travelport said: “This update also helps our supplier partners reach even more of the right customers, with the ability to tailor products to drive sales through the indirect retail channel. As with everything we build, with the end-traveller in mind, more options mean a more relevant customer experience.”
