Escorted tour operator Travelsphere is set to boost its internal and distributed booking options by embarking on a new partnership.
The group will be using Comtec‘s Travelink tour operator sales and management system as a new booking platform, enabling internal Travelsphere users and customers on the company’s travel websites to access advanced booking options for flights and much else.
Comtec’s tour operator system will allow Travelsphere to introduce up-sell and cross-sell opportunities for its tour customers, making use of the booking platform’s wide access to airfares and other travel options.
Travelsphere chief executive Steve Foster said: "We’ve entered this long-term partnership with Comtec as we believe an upgraded technology platform is fundamental to our ambitious growth plans. Specifically, Travelink will help us to deliver our targeted operational efficiencies and to offer increased product choice and flexibility to further improve the high levels of service we provide. We’ll also be using Travelink to develop our online travel distribution activities."
Comtec new business sales director Howard Frost added that further travel distribution agreements were on the cards for the group and would be announced shortly.
