Galaxy Travel Distribution System signs Distribution Agreement with RezKey

Travel News Asia 27 April 2005

Galaxy Travel Distribution System recently signed a major distribution agreement with RezKey, a privately held corporation registered in California (US). RezKey provides an integrated online booking engine and reservation service that enables travel agencies, destination and event websites, intranets, extranets, and call centers to dramatically increase their revenues and productivity.

Galaxy and RezKey have entered into an agreement whereby Galaxy's Net Rate inventory of over 25,000 hotels worldwide will be made available for distribution through RezKeys SmartAgent Integrated Online Hotel Programs.

The RezKey SmartAgent online reservation system is one of the travel industry's only booking engines that seamlessly integrates traditional commission GDS programs with industry-superior high-profit Net Rate and Merchant Model programs. RezKey SmartAgent Integrated Hotel Programs are already used by a growing network of more than 20,000 travel agents for booking of hotels of all classes worldwide.

"RezKey is very pleased to be working with Galaxy Distribution System, adding the Galaxy worldwide Net Rate inventory to the RezKey SmartAgent Integrated Online Hotel Programs encompassing worldwide hotels", said RezKey CEO Dennis Coffey.

Coffey continued by saying, "The synergies between RezKey and Galaxy Distribution Systems will positively impact the travel inventory distribution industry for the benefit of travel agencies and their customers, by providing more choices, excellent prices, and ease of online booking, in line with RezKey's mission of empowering travel agents to close more sales faster, providing more money for the travel agency and better prices for their customers. Travel suppliers also benefit through increased distribution."

According to Mr Myron Ticlo, Galaxys Regional Director of Sales Americas, the deal with RezKey is important to Galaxy because it provides an important conduit to access a large portion of the U.S. retail market. The link-up with RezKey provides Galaxy with a well-known and reputable channel to introduce and expand itself in the American market, stated Ticlo.

Galaxy plans to complete the interface work with RezKey by mid June 2005.
