APT Travel Group has enhanced agent access to its full suite of award winning cruising programs on APT Link, completing an integration with cruise solution platform provider Odysseus Solutions.
Australian travel agents utilizing the Odysseus platform can now obtain real time information for all APT and Travelmarvel river and small ship cruising product globally, including pricing, availability and in-market offers that may apply.
Commenting on the partnership, APT Travel Group Executive General Manager, Global Sales and Marketing Debra Fox said the integration would be of great value to industry partners, in particular small, medium and online travel agencies.
“Having prices, availabilities and in-market offers for all of our cruising inventory available on a streamlined and efficient platform such as Odysseus means agents are able to provide answers without delay,” she said.
“They can then package our inventory with ancillary products, allowing them to secure bookings quickly.”
Odyssey Solutions President and CEO Monish Luthra said the ability to offer APT and Travelmarvel product would assist Odysseus in becoming an agent partner of choice in the Australian market.
“APT and Travelmarvel cruising products are highly sought after by clients in the Australian market and being able to offer them to agents on our platform is a great vote of confidence in the service we provide,” he said.
“They have been a pleasure to deal with every step of the way and we are looking forward to a productive and long-lasting relationship.”
