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.

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.
