Travel2agent to offer low cost online distribution

Mumbai: Travel distribution company, Travel2agent.com, seeks to offer domestic airlines, both scheduled and low-cost, the option of low cost inventory distribution through Global Business Suite or GBS with the prospect of international airline reservations.
The company also plans to develop a similar suite for inter-state bus transport. The GBS, the company claims, will be beneficial both for the principal and the agent. Here, the latter will have a single terminal for access to all inventories irrespective of category while airlines will be able to trim online inventory distribution costs by up to 40 per cent. The unique proposition, according to the company, is its low cost of distribution that opens up the low-cost carrier and the burgeoning budget hotel markets.
