The Global Distribution System (GDS) is an international system used by travel agents and online travel agencies (OTA) to make online bookings. They include brands such as Sabre, WorldSpan, Amadeus, Apollo, and Galileo/TravelPort.
Increased visibility = Increased sales
GDS gives your property global visibility. When combined with ‘meta-search’ services such as Google, Kayak, Oyster, TripAdvisor, Trivago, Wego; ‘bed banks’ like HotelBeds, Tourico, and TravelZoo and consumer networks such as, YellowPages.com, Verizon SuperPages, and TourWorld – your property gains maximum online exposure.

Room and Rate Allocation
Our Channel Manager allocates rooms to distribution partners and reserve others for your walk-ins, website or partner agents. Strategically price your rooms with real–time yielded rates — higher or lower than the rates at your property or on your website. Learn about BookingCenter’s powerful allocation and pricing features.
Corporate, Direct and Negotiated Rates
The travel industry is full of corporations and travel agencies who only book at properties that provide direct, negotiated rates. BookingCenter provides these negotiated rates via your website, through our Local Distribution Systems, and via the GDS systems. Learn more
