3 ways Amadeus is making agents’ lives easier

Isn’t it lovely when technology and trade partners consistently develop new value propositions to help agents work more efficiently?

Well now Amadeus is giving agents even more love than before, with their new in-destination content offerings, fully integrated into the PNR with instant confirmation.

Over the years, booking clients on local tours or activities with reputable companies has been a time-consuming process, going from platform to platform, and manually booking and consolidating everything.

So Amadeus, through its Amadeus Selling Platform Connect tool, has joined forces with some awesome companies to make agents’ lives way, way easier – and we’re here to tell you how…

  1. They’re telling you what content is available

Lost in the city

Booking tours, activities, transfers and more is insanely time-consuming for agents, mostly because there’s so much out there, and you’re expected to scour through it all and manually add it into client itineraries.

So Amadeus has tee’ed up with Livn Experiences, City Discovery and Jayride Transfers and more to give agents a helping hand with what’s on offer.

The new partnerships give you the ability to search and book in real-time, with a completely integrated tours and activities booking solution through Amadeus Selling Platform Connect.

Not only is it easy, it’s also comprehensive, and lets you impress clients with a range of experiences that cater to their travel tastes.

As for transfers worldwide, this one’s typically a tricky one. With Amadeus partner Jayride as well as World Airport Transfers, you can compare and book more than 1,800 transfer companies at over 450 airports worldwide, including in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ireland and the US.

The transfers reach more than 50,000 destinations and up to 250km in any direction from most airports.

Every transfer company in the Jayride catalogue is star rated and reviewed by real passengers for quality and reliability, and all bookings are free sell, with prices guaranteed at the time of booking.

There’s also offers with TurboJET Ferry services in Hong Kong, Macau and China.

  1. They’re saving you stacks of time

Travel agents can never have too much time to book client holidays, so any technology that actually saves time is a godsend.

With Amadeus Selling Platform Connect, agents can easily incorporate tours and activities into any booking with real-time availability, confirmation and pricing with its partners, such as Livn Experiences and City Discovery.

Don’t waste time contacting countless at-destination providers. The clever Amadeus booking platform gives you a single access point to worldwide destination activities – book it all in just a few clicks!

The partners check availability and rates in real-time, providing you with instant confirmation and immediate production of travel vouchers, freeing you up to do more of what you do best.

  1. They’re boosting your revenue (and competitive edge!)

With fierce online and offline competition, you not only need to be different, but you’ve got to sell faster, harder and smarter to keep your bottom line looking pretty.

The destination content is seamlessly integrated into Amadeus Selling Platform Connect and supplier systems to ensure automatic, error-free commissions, while offering your clients a wealth of unique destination experiences.

Your clients will appreciate your local expertise – and get the most out of their holidays.

Whether it’s event tickets or special packages like dinner and a show, sport activities, sightseeing or entries for amusement parks and museums, Amadeus’ tool gives you more choice and customisation to offer your client.

And an even bigger cherry on top of it all is that clients can still book things in the heat of the moment while they’re on holidays, and agents can still get commission for it.

Just share a unique URL code with your clients to book with Amadeus’ activity partner Livn Experiences and they can choose tours and activities on a whim, while still rewarding you in the process. Genius!
