Spending the Holidays in Puerto Vallarta
Technology company Travelport says the latest release of its Travelport+ retail platform provides travel retailers with more air, hotel, and car rental options for travellers.
The company says new and expanded agreements with Booking.com and Hertz will now bring more options for accommodation rates and car rentals to retailers using Travelport+, and Travelport-connected agencies will also gain access to more options from Air France-KLM and Lufthansa Group NDC content at the end of 2022.
"This is the fourth chapter in our delivery of Travelport+, where we're giving agents access to more supplier options and fueling their ability to sell more air, hotel, and car offers as we broaden and expand our content catalogue," said Jen Catto, Chief Marketing Officer.
"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."
More Air Content
Air France-KLM NDC content is being introduced on Travelport+, and Travelport will also begin the rollout of Lufthansa Group NDC content in 2022. Travelport is also adding three new airlines to the platform - Congo Airways, FlyGTA and US-Bangla Airlines, along with 11 new ancillaries, and four more airlines now offer Branded Fares.
More Hotel Choices
Travelport's new 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 also standardizing more hotel content to make workflows easier for developers and agents, so that retailers and travellers benefit from more property and room choice, easier searches, and superior clarity on rates.
More Car Rental OptionsTravelport+ is now offering Hertz pre-paid car rental rates through an expanded content distribution partnership. Travel retailers using Travelport+ will now have more revenue-generating opportunities with car rentals booked through the platform.
In addition to an expanding travel content offering, Travelport says it is focused on making the process of managing exchanges easier for agents using the Travelport+ platform. In the coming months, 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. With its tremendously improved graphical workflow, Automated Exchanges will dramatically lower costs and preserve valuable time for both agents and travelers.
