Global wholesaler INNstant Travel is forecasting a boost in growth following the decision to extend its reach via Multicom’s FindandBook, the leading travel aggregation interface used by many tour operators and travel agents including Thomas Cook and TUI.
FindandBook is currently used by more than 50% of ABTA-registered leisure agents, which is one of the reasons why INNstant Travel decided to join in.
“The Multicom Findand Book solution enables us to support our Advantage Travel Partnership and Travel Network Group consortia members via their in- house technology platforms which is key to our growth strategy,” says Gary Gillespie, Head of Sales at INNstant Travel.
INNstant Travel is a global wholesaler of travel products with offices and teams in Europe, the Middle East, USA, India, Turkey, Australia, Brazil and China. Their product range covers 275,000+ hotels and apartments in 27,000 cities. Travellers are offered comprehensive information such as hotel facilities, advanced filters, maps, guest reviews and distance to major landmarks. Their INNstant Connect technology connects to major hotel providers like Hilton, IHG, Wyndham and Best Western, in addition to a huge number of independent hotels.
UK based Multicom delivers the widest range of travel related products including flights, accommodation, packages, car hire, trains, insurance and many others. Multicom was recently acquired by Paxport, a leading travel retail technology provider and IATA NDC Strategic Partner. The merger is part of Paxport’s strategy to grow and differentiate by providing outstanding travel merchandising solutions in both the booking and post-booking stage. By combining their technologies, the two companies will be able to offer an MDS (Merchandising and Distribution System) that will connect suppliers (airlines, accommodation and others) and travel resellers (tour operators, OTAs and traditional travel agents).
