Travelport has begun offering airport parking content through its GDS.
Travel Parking Group (TPG) provides car park reservation and distribution systems for travel agents, airlines and airports.
Its airport parking application, Looking4app, is now available to travel agencies through Travelport’s point of sale technology, Travelport Smartpoint – an application that supports commands from any GDS in a cryptic environment, enabling agents to use the technology straight away, whatever GDS language they are used to.
Martin Mansell, commercial director at TPG, said: “Our products are not only competitively priced but they are secure and approved, with thousands of customer reviews.
“By tapping into TPG’s Looking4app, travel agents can save time, boost revenue and retain their customers.”
TPG provides meet and greet, on-site and off-site car parks across a global supplier network. The Looking4app offers Travelport-connected agents a fully integrated airport car parking payments solution which picks up flight and customer details.
Simon Ferguson, managing director UK, Ireland and the Nordics at Travelport, said: “Booking airport parking previously required agents to open multiple systems and often involved logging into several different websites to search for the best price, which was a time-consuming process.
“By accessing Looking4app, agents can increase the overall revenue per trip and save themselves a lot of time by adding airport parking to existing reservations and back-office systems automatically.”
The Looking4app plug-in is free to download via Travelport Marketplace.
