TMC Click Travel has launched a new business travel platform – Travel.cloud.
The service uses Click Travel’s new aggregation technology to search thousands of travel providers to find the “best rates and widest choice”.
The tool pulls rich travel and accommodation content from online travel agencies, GDSs and directly from suppliers. There is also support for contract rates, travel policies, approval processes and a reporting service as part of the package.
Travel.cloud also has ‘direct connect’ capability allowing suppliers to bypass the GDS and distribute their content to buyers directly.
Simon McLean, executive chairman of Click Travel said: “Travel.cloud is the result of several years work based on our experience and insights at Click to finally bring to market a true self-service online travel solution for teams of any size.
“Travel suppliers now have the ability to connect to our platform directly, in return for which we are offering them zero cost of distribution – no commission, no booking fees, nothing.
“By providing us with programmable access to the business processes we need to dramatically improve the travel buyers experience and the efficiency of our platform, we can continually reduce the cost of distribution for travel suppliers – right the way down to zero,” said McLean.
