Frequently asked questions.
Each year billions of hotel bookings are made through travel agencies and Travel Management Companies (TMCs) via global distribution systems. In addition, these agencies frequently handle hotel bookings for both travel groups and corporate travellers. This means that by connecting with a GDS, hotels will not only increase their visibility to a range of new booking opportunities, they are also more likely to increase their average occupancy and ADR by connecting with these more lucrative travel segments.
Unlike other stand-alone GDS products, SiteMinder GDS connects you to all the leading GDS products on the market, including Sabre, Amadeus, Apollo, Worldspan and Galileo by Travelport. What’s more, with SiteMinder’s hotel commerce platform you can easily connect your rate plans and available inventory to both Online Travel Agents and Global Distribution Systems in one single place, saving you time and effort. Plus, SiteMInder also offers you 24/7 global support, 1:1 onboarding and a personalised consulting service available from a single place.
A Travel Consortia is where a group of travel agents will join together to increase their purchasing power and offer larger group bookings to hotels. They are an excellent way for hotels, especially those targeting business travellers, to increase occupancy rates and tap into the lucrative corporate travel market.
