single point of access for booking airline seats, hotels rooms, car
rentals, and other travel related item by travel agents, travel
booking sites and big corporation. It covers everything from
airline tickets to car rentals to hotel rooms and more.
How GDS works?
How GDS works?
• Your property’s information including rates and inventory are
loaded into GDS networks. From here, many online travel portals
retrieve your property information and display it in the search
results. Travel agents primarily log into one of the four GDS
systems to retrieve your property information. Furthermore, many
online travel portals also retrieve your property information from
one of the four systems
GDS ORIGINS
• Originally GDS was developed to help travel agents (worldwide) track of flight schedule,
availability and prices and book flights tickets airlines but were later extended to travel
agents to provide complete travel packages like Travel and tours, hotels rooms, car rentals
and more.
• Today, global distribution systems allow users to purchase tickets from multiple different
providers or airlines. Global distribution systems are also the back end of most Internet-
based travel services.
• GDS can link services, rates and bookings consolidating products and services across all three
travel sectors: i.e., airline reservations, hotel reservations, car rentals, and activities.
