Agents using Endeavour now have immediate access to real-time booking
information for a number of major ferry operators. 20 Operators are
currently live on the system, including P&O Group, Stena Line and
Pentland Ferries in the UK.  Agents will be able to select destinations,
choose routes, dates and sailing times.

Agents can access AFerry.to simply by clicking the Ferry Booking icon on
their Endeavour portal. A particular bonus of the service is that
special offers from a number of ferry operators are available
exclusively on AFerry.to, which agents and customers booking through
Endeavour will have access to.

Nick Rowley of Entee Global Services said: “We are delighted to enter
into this joint venture with Telewest Travel. Together we will provide a
higher level of functionality and a great new product to all agents
using Endeavour.  With Telewest Travel, we will also be able to offer
agents the ability to have ferry booking engines embedded into their own

Chris Juden, Product Manager of Travel Applications, Telewest Travel,
said: Endeavour is designed to provide agents with access to
comprehensive travel booking and information services and the addition
of AFerry.to complements the existing portfolio. Endeavour agents will
now be able to use this new service to offer ferry bookings either in
the retail shop or over the Internet
