Best rates for travel agents

Global wholesale travel company Destinations of the World (DOTW) has teamed up with GDS provider Amadeus to provide dynamic best rate packaging for its clients.

Global wholesale travel company Destinations of the World (DOTW) has teamed up with GDS provider Amadeus to provide dynamic best rate packaging for its clients.

DOTW will supply its wholesale rates and inventory content for properties in the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia and Australia through all the agencies that use the Amadeus technology.

"DOTW will open doors for Amadeus in markets where we have a strong presence and Amadeus provides us with the opportunity to distribute our products via the GDS in territories where Amadeus have the largest penetration," explained Keith Fernandez, managing director, DOTW Group.

Rates and inventory will also be made available through DOTW's new state-of-the-art system, DOTWconnect, which directly accesses the central reservation system (CRS) of hotels through the Amadeus system and therefore enables agents to access the DOTW contracted rates and inventory, guaranteeing best rates for customers.

The interface system will be developed in several stages and when the initial hotel module has been successfully designed and implemented, it will be followed by both car rental and air components.

"When this has been completed we will introduce an all-inclusive dynamic package module," Fernandez said.

The fully operational model will give travel agents real-time access to all of the products available through DOTW, as well as instant booking capability.
