GDS integration service for Travel portal

GDS stands for Global Distribution System. GDS centralizes services and provide travel related transactions via computer networks or platforms. They cover everything from airline tickets, to car rentals, to hotel rooms, and more.

Global Distribution System is also called as “Computer Reservation System” (CRS) which  are computerized systems used to store and retrieve information and conduct transactions related to air travel, hotels, car rental, or other activities.

GDS system was basically designed for Air-lines system. But as per time, it goes on extending to Travel system also… Right now, GDS is allowing users to book tickets from various providers to make them choice. GDS also plays the role of Back End to most Internet based travel services.

However, different GDS are still providing the services to limited number of airlines. For example, PARS by USAir, Worldspan by Delta, Sabre is used by American Airlines etc. Other major global distribution systems include Galileo, TravelSky, and Worldspan.

GDS always plays a vital role in travel portal. Although the traditional role of GDS is changing so as to meet the changes that happens in travel sector; GDS acts as a core element for travel system.

Two important considerations impacting the role of global distribution systems are :

  1. Online travel website provides various rate cards for different packages and even facilitates with customization of package as per required; hence leading to the tremendous growth of online travel sector across the world.
  2. GDS has been pushed for more integrations due to steady growth in online business of airline service providers and other travel service providers, that encourage consumers to make more and more online bookings via their websites. For example,

Many airlines companies incentivised travellers for the purchase or booking of tickets directly from their websites, to let travellers generate additional revenue. Some airlines are even imposing additional fees for tickets booked through a global distribution system, rather than the airline's website.

While such changes will definitely impact the future growth opportunities of travel system, the global distribution systems will continue holding the key role for them, as they has been evolved to meet the needs of travel planners, travel websites, airlines and even the group of individuals.
