(Travel Division), the travel industry`s leading provider of integrated selling and communications solutions, announces the creation of a new solution on Traveleye allowing agents to make commissionable online bookings with over 20 ferry operators.

The agreement with web reservations provider Entee Global Services will see Aferry.to, Entee`s leading online ferry booking gateway available on Traveleye. AFerry.to is the world`s largest real-time ferry booking gateway, providing connectivity to all major UK and Mediterranean ferry operators and offering e-ticketing functionality.  The service is due to go live in February.

Following recent partnership agreements with Ramesys and Voyager, introducing multi tour operator search and booking solutions on Traveleye, this announcement reflects NTL Business (Travel Division)`s commitment to work with industry players to ensure Traveleye is the most comprehensive agency selling system available.

Other companies available on Traveleye`s e-marketplace include Gold Medal`s Farebank and Hotelbank systems, leading car rental companies Hertz and Holiday Autos, top short breaks operator Superbreak and the UK`s top conference venue finder BMCV (British Meeting & Conference Venues).
