Travelport Gives Sandals Resorts (UCHL) The Ability To Add Flights To Its Luxury Destinations

Published on : Wednesday, June 14, 2017

TravelportTravelport, a leading Travel Commerce Platform, and Unique Caribbean Holidays Limited (UCHL) – trading as Sandals and Beaches Resorts -have today announced their first-ever GDS deal.

 

 

Last month UCHL began offering Luxury Included® holidays to Sandals and Beaches Resorts, direct to the trade for the first time. This agreement will now enable agents to compare and select flights alongside Sandals resort packages.

 

 

UCHL offers a diverse collection of 20 properties in seven countries including Antigua, Bahamas, Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, St Lucia, Turks & Caicos Islands.  Luxury all-inclusive hotel specialists, Sandals and Beaches Resorts, prides itself on offering more inclusions than anywhere else worldwide, as well as unrivalled product innovations within the region, including the Caribbean’s first Over the Water Suites that recently launched in Jamaica and St. Lucia.

 

 

Through its debut agreement to connect to Travelport’s leading access to global travel provider content, UCHL can further differentiate its offer by providing comprehensive pre-packaged holidays, rather than obliging agents to go directly to each airline website to piece together a travel itinerary. With Travelport, agents can offer a more personalized travel experience based on information beyond just rate and availability and build the Sandals and Beaches brands by meeting the expectations of the always-connected consumer.

 

 

Karl Thompson, Managing Director at UCHL, said: “We’re delighted to have struck our inaugural GDS partnership with Travelport. We are confident that Travelport’s industry-leading technology will help differentiate our Luxury Included packages from competing resorts by providing agents with the comprehensive flight and ancillary options expected by our customers.”

 

 

Paul Broughton, Managing Director at Travelport UK & Ireland, commented: “We are delighted that UCHL has recognized Travelport’s air merchandising platform capabilities to enable it to market and sell more effectively to agents and travellers.  We are looking forward to supporting UCHL as it continues to differentiate its brand and grow its business”.
