Amadeus to offer Destination Content
Australian technology firm Livn Group has issued a call for up to 10 local Amadeus-powered travel agencies to participate in a significant new tours and activities project. The company is launching a Destination Content channel exclusively within Amadeus — which will mean that for the first time ever in a GDS environment agents will be able to add “valuable, curated non-core GDS global travel experiences” seamlessly within the booking flow process.
Livn general manager of business solutions, Gary Gelenter, told travelBulletin the innovation would allow consultants to easily offer their clients global tour and activity content — and make 10% commission payable at source. Suppliers currently offered on the Livn platform include Urban Adventures, G Adventures, Intrepid and Gray Line as well as thousands of local experiences such as BridgeClimb Sydney, Quicksilver, Hobbiton and Paris or Hong Kong Disneyland.
A pilot of the scheme will run for about a month before Amadeus launches the system globally.
