Traveltek has announced two major additions to its online cruise booking portfolio, with both Holland America Line and Thomson Cruises adding their itineraries to the live iCruise platform.
The deals take Traveltek’s coverage of ex-UK cruise inventory to 95 per cent of the total offering - surpassing that of any other company.
Holland America Line (HAL) will provide more choice to agents with live pricing and online book-ability.
On offer are more than 125 itineraries from Alaska to Bermuda, while the brand epitomises the ultimate in worldwide premium travel experiences onboard a fleet of 15 five star ships.
The line offers “premium” cruising, onboard stylish modern ships.
The addition of Thomson Cruises, one of the UK’s favourite cruise lines was previously unavailable for agents to book online until this latest Traveltek release.
Traveltek MD, Kenny Picken stated: “Traveltek only develop direct connections to the cruise operators, as opposed to via a GDS and this strategy has proven successful, adding true value in their distribution not only in the UK but also in Europe and the rest of the world as we have developed iCruise to suit a global audience.
“Agents realise by dealing direct with a cruise operator or via their systems on the Traveltek platform that they can take advantage of the best deals and tacticals in real time.
Traveltek provide a basic entry level cruise solution that helps agents generate enquiries to their fully integrated, multi-channel, multi-lingual, multi-currency cruise platform, linking not just e-commerce, but call centre and retail cruise sales in one seamless environment.
