Public booking and retailing portal
Symphony Travel is a "public booking portal", that agencies can implement on their website. This booking engine is a user friendly, yet extremely sophisticated platform to help you to maximise your market opportunities. It comes with a variable selection of add-ons to fully meet your business needs.
With live availability links and access to both, traditional airlines (via NDC and GDS) and direct access to LCCs, this core module allows your customers to book tickets in a very intuitive environment. Some of the key features include: Availability calendars, use of multiple points of sale or even different fare combinations to find the lowest price available or perhaps offer of fare families, so your customers get the same choice and experience as when booking directly with the airline. That’s why we help to generate our customers hundreds of millions $ every year.
With the trend of airlines axing the services included in the basic fare and offering each customer the individual travel experience through ancillaries, this module allows you to do even more. Aside of accessing and the airlines content you can enrich your offerings by plugging-in other external content providers, or even defined your own content. This gives you the value of a customised service provider.
Symphony.API is an option for those agencies that have built their own solution and seek to get the best content quickly and easily.
