Business services provider, Travelport has announced a new long term agreement to provide exclusive GDS services to Australia’s leading Asian VFR (Visiting Friends and Relatives) agency group, Digital Travel.
Galileo has been the preferred GDS for the Queensland-based travel agency since 1992 and over this period of time, Digital Travel has expanded to four branches in Queensland and NSW with additional expansion underway.
“Travelport has been an important partner in Digital Travel’s growth over the past 20 years. Their vision and product innovation are second to none, and have generated productivity enhancements and efficiencies across our branches. We enjoy strong relationships with the Travelport team, who not only support the technical side of our business but have also assisted us in improving other areas such as workflow and CRM,” said James Lin, General Manager Digital Travel.
“Digital Travel has been a loyal client for two decades and we are excited to be renewing our long-standing agreement to partner with them for the next term. Key products or ours - including Travelport Smartpoint App, Fareshopping Viewtrip Mobile and Travelport Rooms and More - have been embraced by Digital Travel’s 35 member team, and it is pleasing to see our technology furthering their business into the future,” said Alex Fitzpatrick, Travelport’s General Manager for the Pacific Region.
Digital Travel specialises in the Asian VFR market, assisting customers in sourcing airfares and accommodation, as well as providing visa information, insurance and holiday packages, particularly for customers visiting Asia and others countries.
