Hotel Distribution Services

With one of the largest global distribution systems (GDS) in the world, you can gain access to more guests than you’d ever thought possible. Whether you are a hotel property, hotel chain, representation company, or aggregator, we offer solutions to help distribute and sell your content. Through the Amadeus Travel Platform, we connect you with our global network of subscriber travel agencies. We present bookers with rich, accurate, and diverse hotel content while helping your properties stand out in both the market and in front of customers.

What Is Hotel Distribution?

Hotel distribution refers to the complicated web of internet-based channels through which guests book rooms with hotels. Guests go through a variety of booking channels depending on their intent, loyalty status, and trip purpose. These channels include:

  • Online travel agencies
  • Travel management companies
  • Tour operators
  • Corporate self-booking
  • Travel agents
  • Hotel websites

Today, guests use both traditional and online portals to book, which means hoteliers are constantly faced with one main challenge: maximizing their hotel distribution strategy in order to get in front of the right customers, at the right time.

Amadeus Hotel Distribution Services

From a home-based agency in Carolina to the leading online player in Australia, our solution puts you in front of all types of booking services all over the world – including high-touch travel management companies, web services customers, and leisure agencies. Getting connected has never been easier – if you have a Central Reservation System (CRS), we connect to our Travel Platform directly, or via a ‘Switch’ company. Once connected, we help you to sell the right room and the right property, at the right rate, to the right guest, in any market, anywhere.

Gain Access to a Global Footprint

With a GDS, you can connect with the biggest global footprint. That’s millions of potential guests that you might not reach otherwise.
