Amadeus has launched Hotels Plus (Multisource), a one-stop-shop search platform integrating Amadeus GDS hotel properties with content from leading hotel aggregators.

The new service allows Amadeus travel agents to search and book hotel content from multiple sources in a single screen.

Hotel booking processes at travel agencies are rarely standardised across points of sale, with travel agencies shopping for rates across a variety of channels, both GDS and third party websites, and even double checking directly with hotels, which wastes both time and money when researching and making bookings, as well as with the paperwork and data consolidation afterwards.

Travel agencies using Amadeus Hotels Plus (Multisource) will now be able to access combined multi-source content displays with the ability to pre-pay, confirm bookings, issue vouchers and receive commissions instantly at the point of sale and facilitate the booking process.

Kartikeya Tripathi Head of Hotel Distribution, Amadeus Asia Pacific, said, Changing consumer behaviour and enabling easier access to direct hotel content is creating both challenges and opportunities for our travel agency and hotel partners which is exactly what this new solution addresses. Aggregators such as Destinations of the World, Transhotel, and HRS are already in the platform providing access to rates and pricing from 250,000 hotel properties worldwide.

Amadeus Hotels Plus (Multisource) is now available in India, China, Hong Kong and Malaysia. The solution is expected to be introduced in other Asia Pacific markets in the coming months.
