Kuoni in distribution drive

Longhaul luxury tour operator Kuoni has enhanced the web-based services it provides to travel agents via Comtec’s EasySell travel distribution platform.

The new connectivity will enable Kuoni to automatically generate holiday availability directly into Comtec systems and will also provide a deep-link into Kuoni’s travel agent website in order to complete bookings for holidays located via EasySell’s holiday search facility.

Comtec is the UK’s market leading supplier of leisure travel selling systems to travel agents with its EasySell customers including with First Choice, Thomas Cook, My Travel, Travelcare, Harvey World Travel and hundreds of independent agents,

Matt Rooke, eBusiness Director, Kuoni UK said, “Our development with Comtec is another example of our commitment to working with UK travel agents. We’re investing in our customers preferred distribution channels and we believe EasySell users will welcome the productivity benefits arising from the enhanced services we’ve introduced with Comtec”.

Comtec indicated more operators are using web-based links. Vicki Tittley, Head Of Sales, commented “With more and more operators looking for web-based solutions in preference to Viewdata, Comtec now supports a vast range of connectivity options. We’re delighted to be able to deliver Kuoni a tailored distribution service that supports its business objectives”.
