This Travel Platform has everything you and your clients need

Never heard of the Amadeus Travel Platform? Let us enlighten you.

This platform brings together content from multiple sources for travel agents to use – and we’re super excited about it.

Not just because it brings together air, hotel, ground transport, destination services and insurance content, but because it’s content from any source – including GDS as you know it today, as well as new sources such as NDC and API.

Basically, the platform has everything a retail business needs, all in one place. And regardless of your business model, Amadeus Travel Platform can cater for your needs.

If you’re already an Amadeus customer, you’ll know all about the variety of resources under the Amadeus Travel Platform umbrella. But did we mention they’re also building a Live Travel Space?

The Live Travel Space is Amadeus evolving from a global distribution system (GDS) to a space that brings together their technology, people’s expertise, substantial investments and strong customer relationships, together creating endless possibilities. But you can read more about that right here.

Amadeus’ Travel Platform not only encompasses the Live Travel Space, but also a ton of content. And the best bit? Content on the platform can be accessed via any channel or device and with Amadeus’ leading technology, your bookings and comparisons will be uniform and transparent.

Through the platform, you’ll be able to accommodate different business models, giving flexibility and autonomy over how content is sourced, managed and displayed.

In fact, there’s a platform specifically designed for retail travel agents!

Amadeus Selling Platform Connect is made to help fantabulous agents (that’s you) sell smarter and better, with a ton of content available anytime, from anywhere.

Being part of the Amadeus Travel Platform means you’ll have all the content you need at your fingertips. Think everything from airline, hotel, car and in-destination activities, so you can offer your clients a truly unique end-to-end experience.

If this has spiked your curiosity and you want to know more, hurry! Check out the Amadeus Travel Platform here.
