Travelport, the business services provider to the global travel industry, announces that hotel booking company Polyglobe Group, which trades as The Corporate Team, is now using Galileo Web Services to provide GDS hotel content to their customers. Under the new, multi-year agreement, The Corporate Team’s clients have access to more than 90,000 hotels worldwide.
Polyglobe’s other brands include sister company British Hotel Reservation Centre (BHRC), which offers hotel accommodation and tourist services at most of London’s major airports and mainline railway stations, including Heathrow, Stansted, St Pancras and Victoria. From these desks, passengers can book hotels conveniently and often at heavily discounted rates.
The Corporate Team previously used a different supplier for their hotel content across their business, but as of January this year, they switched to Travelport’s Galileo Web Service platform.
Mark Murray, Head of OTA and Agency Hospitality Sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Travelport says:
“We are delighted that The Corporate Team has chosen Travelport as its exclusive hotel content provider and are excited about strengthening this partnership further over the coming years. The Corporate Team now benefits from the enhanced functionality and speed of Galileo Web Services, where our competitive hotel rates will be displayed alongside their own negotiated hotel deals, allowing them to be as competitive as possible within both the OTA space and at their airport booking desks.”
Tony Kingsnorth, Sales and Marketing Director for The Corporate Team adds:
“As part of Polyglobe’s long-term plans to evolve from a hotel booking specialist to offering other travel booking services, I am very pleased to have a new contract in place with one of the world’s leading travel content distributors, Travelport. Their innovative systems give us the confidence that we can provide the highest level of service to clients on all sides of Polyglobe’s business - with a competitive edge. Both Travelport and Polyglobe have over 40 years’ experience in the travel industry, and this combined expertise means that we are well positioned to succeed.”
