Hotelzon has signed contracts with the four major GDSs (Amadeus, Galileo, Sabre and Worldspan) to provide GDS Representation under the chain code XZ.
The service will be implemented at the “next generation seamless” level so that Hotelzon hotels will be on a par with the major chains.
The link to the GDSs will be via the Pegasus switch which means that ADS distribution to the Pegasus powered web sites will also be offered.
A new release of the Hotelzon WebConnect tool for hotels will allow loading of all the data required for GDS and in addition will provide the facility to manage GDS and ADS as separate distribution channels with defined rates and availability.
CEO, Erik Floman said “Hotelzon is delighted that we will be shortly able to offer GDS Representation to hotels in addition to the existing Hotelzon Online and Private Label services. Through our Hotelzon PMSConnect product we can integrate with 20+ PMS systems so we will be able to offer hotels a complete end to end global distribution package. We have always seen our hotels as commercial partners and intend to offer an excellent service at a fair price.”
