Travelport, a leading Travel Commerce Platform and Trailfinders, experts in tailor-made travel itineraries, have announced a new long term agreement meaning the UK’s largest independent travel company will continue to connect to Travelport’s unrivalled choice of global travel content. Long-time Travelport customer, Trailfinders, employs over 1,000 expert travel consultants across 32 travel centres.
Travelport’s Travel Commerce Platform enables Trailfinders expert consultants to access Travelport’s unrivalled choice of travel content – including the branded fares and ancillaries from over 400 of the world’s leading airlines and low cost carriers, as well as over 650,000 hotel properties to create tailor-made itineraries for their clients. Furthermore, Travelport’s high performance travel booking technology allows Trailfinders consultants to search beyond rate and availability to book travel smarter and increase revenues all within their preferred workflows and without having to spend time accessing the websites of numerous travel providers.
Tony Russell, Managing Director at Trailfinders, said: “This new agreement builds on a 25 year plus relationship and demonstrates our confidence in Travelport to provide our business with unrivalled travel choice as well as cutting edge products and unique merchandizing solutions to optimize our services and cement our presence in the travel market.”

To maintain their leadership in their field, Trailfinders needs access to both extensive global travel choice as well as the very best travel booking technology and this has remained our focus, and an area in which we have continued to invest in and lead in. We’re delighted that they have chosen Travelport again.”
