Start-up business to business distribution platform for holiday rental properties has integrated its technology with tour operating technology specialist Intuitive.
The connection provides Pathway GDS’s almost 100,000 holiday homes through Intuitive’s iVector system which powers online agents such as Lowcost Holidays.
Andrew Nicholson, commercial and distribution director at Pathway GDS said: “This partnership represents a key milestone in the expansion of the distribution network that Pathway GDS offers to our supplier clients.
“Intuitive work with some of the best OTAs and operators in the sector who we know will be a great match for the range of holiday homes that we have available.”
Pathway GDS aggregates a range of product from apartments and villas to chalets, gites, condos and castles.
Around 95% of its portfolio is instantly bookable and all properties are supplied by professional rental businesses, travel agencies and operators.
Paul Cummings, commercial director for the UK & Ireland at Interhome, a Pathway GDS supplier said: “We are working closely with Pathway GDS to gain access to additional distribution channels and are excited about the new business that will be generated by being available on the iVector platform.”
Intuitive’s clients can now access multiple suppliers of holiday home properties through one connection giving them access to what Pathway GDS claimed is one of the fastest growing product categories in the travel sector.
Andy Keeley, Intuitive commercial director of Intuitive said: “It’s important for us to continue to expand the product supply in our system.
“We have over 60 accommodation suppliers in iVector, 120 across all products, and we’re committed to further growing our connections to be able to offer our clients product that will help them drive revenues. We certainly believe that Pathway GDS will help do that.”
