A Global Distribution System, or GDS, is a computerized network that expedites transactions between travel service providers and travel agents (both online travel agents like Expedia and human travel agents).

A Global Distribution System (GDS) links reservation inventory under one web-based network. The most accepted uses for GDSs are in the tourism industry, mainly for airlines, hospitality companies, and car rental companies. In this way, service providers, such as travel agencies and online travel agencies can all sell tickets for the same flight, hotel, or car rental.

global-distribution-system

 

Global distribution systems are an emissary between vendors, such as hotels and airlines, and service providers, such as online travel agencies. While most big GDSs are linked to the major travel agencies, smaller, less overpriced GDSs may offer a limited amount of travel agencies.

The tangled web of databases has become even more of a morass following the outbreak of online travel agencies (OTAs) like Booking.com, Expedia and Wotif. Hotels and other travel individual can use technology solutions to capitalize on this trend, tapping into all GDSs, consist of the likes of Amadeus, Galileo, Sabre, and Worldspan by Travelport.

Live rates and availability are sent from a hotel’s property management system (PMS) directly to the GDS and online booking websites via a channel manager. As soon as a reservation is made on the GDS or an online booking website, the channel manager immediately reduces inventory across all channels, including the hotel’s own website, and automatically distribute the reservation details back into the PMS or central reservation system (CRS). Each GDS has its own set of connection fees and requirements to sign up if you do this individually, rather than through a technology solution.
