We’re creating a more connected travel industry, underpinned by sustainability and long-term investor relations.
The agreement will enable the organisations to share each other’s content, boosting their ability to serve the global travel agency community, the hospitality industry and travellers.
Madrid, May 14 2007 – Amadeus, a global leader in technology and distribution solutions for the travel and tourism industry, and Destinations of the World (DOTW) the only dedicated global wholesale travel company and a leader in the travel wholesale industry, today announced a strategic partnership. The agreement will enable the organisations to share each other’s content, boosting their ability to serve the global travel agency community, the hospitality industry and travellers.
The partnership will enable travel agents using Amadeus’ distribution system to access DOTW rates and inventory content for hotels and apartments in the Middle East, Indian Sub Continent, South East Asia and Australia. DOTW will connect to the CRS of hotels through the Amadeus system to enable access to continuously updated rates and inventory.
In addition, travel agents using the DOTW portal will have access to the thousands of hotels worldwide available on Amadeus. These hotels will also be made available through DOTW’s new advanced online reservation system ‘DOTWconnect’. This will increase DOTW’s hotel portfolio globally and provide their customers with a much wider choice of available product. Travel agents using DOTWconnect will not only have access to inventory and rates, but will also enable them to undertake commission clearing and pre-payment.
The tie up between the two companies offers a multitude of benefits to both the travel trade and suppliers worldwide:
