Global Travel Management has extended its long-standing deal with Travelport.
It means the travel management company will continue to process its bookings though Travelport’s Travel Commerce Platform, which includes branded fares and ancillaries from the world’s leading airlines and low-cost carriers as well as more than 650,000 hotel properties.
The “multi-year” agreement will see agents continue to access content through Travelport’s Smartpoint point of sale solution.
Scott Pawley, managing director of Global Travel Management said: “After reviewing all the major GDS suppliers, looking not only back on what they have offered the industry over the last three years but more importantly how they are approaching the future three years and beyond, for GTM Travelport was the clear winner.
“It’s innovative approach with products like Travelport Smartpoint, which allows us to sell airline ancillaries, has been a key factor in our success and growth and with its new products on the horizon such as Locomote it’s clear they are looking to the future.”
Paul Broughton, regional managing director of UK and Ireland at Travelport, added: “We are glad the company has continued to see the advantage of combining the broadest possible choice in travel content with smart tools that empower their agents to sell that content more effectively to meet their customers’ travel management needs.”
